Using a mathematical model for self-foldability of rigid origami, we
determine which monohedral quadrilateral tilings of the plane are uniquely
self-foldable. In particular, the Miura-ori and Chicken Wire patterns are not
self-foldable under our d...

In this paper, we will show methods to interpret some rigid origami with
higher degree vertices as the limit case of structures with degree-4
supplementary angle vertices. The interpretation is based on separating each
crease into two parallel cre...

We develop an intrinsic necessary and sufficient condition for single-vertex
origami crease patterns to be able to fold rigidly. We classify such patterns
in the case where the creases are pre-assigned to be mountains and valleys as
well as in the...

We describe a general family of curved-crease folding tessellations
consisting of a repeating "lens" motif formed by two convex curved arcs. The
third author invented the first such design in 1992, when he made both a sketch

We prove that the pleated hyperbolic paraboloid, a familiar origami model
known since 1927, in fact cannot be folded with the standard crease pattern in
the standard mathematical model of zero-thickness paper. In contrast, we show
that the model c...
