    Kyle Boelte: IMG Selfies, Memoir, and the World Beyond the Self



    When I was a teenager in Colorado during the late '90s, I liked to climb 14ers — 14,000-foot mountains. I'd often hike with friends, and at... Continue »

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Continuing the groundbreaking work of their previous two books, the mathematician and mechanical engineer authors of this volume further strengthen the link between origami and mathematics — and expand the relationship to crystallography. Through a series of photographs, diagrams, and charts, they illustrate the correlation between the origami waterbomb base and the mathematical duality principle of Archimedean solids. Then, they show how to apply the correlation to models of the buckyball (a carbon-60 molecule resembling a soccer ball, named for R. Buckminster Fuller, designer of the geodesic dome). By the process of gyroscope transformation, origamists can transform buckyballs into more new and interesting shapes. Step-by-step instructions and clear diagrams show origami enthusiasts how to create a world of multifaceted wonders.

Synopsis:

Explore the link between paperfolding and mathematics with this unique, well-illustrated guide to creating a world of multifaceted wonders that draws on elements of crystallography. Photographs, diagrams, and charts show how to apply mathematical principles to the origami waterbomb base to create geodesic forms. Detailed instructions, clear diagrams.

Synopsis:

Experienced origamists can explore the link between paperfolding and mathematics with this well-illustrated guide to creating a world of multifaceted wonders that draws on elements of crystallography. Photographs, diagrams, and charts illustrate the relationship between the origami waterbomb base and a mathematical principle from ancient Greece. Instructions show how to apply this relationship to models of the buckyball, a sphere of interlocked hexagons and pentagons that resembles engineer Buckminster Fuller's famous geodesic dome. Detailed instructions and clear diagrams show how to use gyroscope transformation to form the buckyballs into even more interesting shapes. A challenge to origami devotees, these remarkable projects will also provide perfect aids to classroom demonstrations of geometric principles.
