An application of a theorem of alternatives to origami

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Theorems of alternatives are useful mathematical tools in optimization. Their objects are pairs of linear systems. Folding a paper with a crease defines a linear inequality in R2. So one gets convex polygons by folding a paper many times. This paper provides a new perspective of duality to origami mathematics. We show that Gale's theorem of alternatives is useful for the study of twist fold.
