      Notes: The last decade of the 20th century has seen a revolution in the development and application of mathematical techniques to origami, the centuries-old Japanese art of paper-folding. As often happens theory originally developed for its own sake has led to some surprising practical applications, from safer airbags to gargantuan space telescopes. Physicist Robert J. Lang is one of the world’s leading masters of origami, and a pioneer in the marriage of origami with mathematics with designs of great detail, complexity and realism
