Spring 2019 Course Descriptions

COMP 150-05 Computational Origami

H. Alves Akitaya
TR 4:30-5:45p, Halligan Hall 111A
L+ Block

This course will explore the mathematics of folding in 1, 2, and 3 dimensions. We will take an algorithmic approach to solve problems related to folding, exploring from simple concepts to the state-of-the-art. We will also take a look at some open problems in the area and perhaps even collaborate in solving some! Along with math and algorithms, we will also have fun folding some origami.

Prerequisite: Comp160 is required, Comp163 and Comp170 are recommended but not required (concept needed from these disciplines will be briefly covered in the course).
