Chapter
We discuss an abstraction of origami.We formalize origami by the abstract rewriting. We describe an origami construction by abstract rewritings of a rewriting system (O, ↬), where O is the set of abstract origamis and ↬ is a binary relation on O, that models a fold. An abstract origami is a structure (∏, ∼ , ≻), where ∏ is a set of faces constituti...
Chapter
We discuss an origami geometry based on Huzita-Justin’s basic folds. In the 2D Euclidean geometry, we use a straightedge and a compass to construct geometric objects. We show that Huzita-Justin’s basic folds can construct them without such tools but by hand. We reformulate Huzita-Justin’s fold rules by giving them precise conditions for their use....
Chapter
We discuss the basic fold rules of origami. With a small number of fold rules, we can construct geometric shapes that we see at geometry classes of schools. We construct those shapes usually by a straightedge and a compass, so-called a Euclidian tool of construction. We explain the set of the basic fold rules and show, by examples, that it is as po...
Chapter
Origami is the art of paper folding, providing the methodology of constructing a two-dimensional (2D) or three-dimensional (3D) object out of a sheet of paper solely by folding by hand.
Chapter
In this chapter, we see Huzita-Justin folds HO from a logical point of view. We give the logical specification of HO as constraints among geometric objects of origami in the language of the first-order predicate logic. The logical specification is next translated to logical combinations of algebraic expressions, i.e., polynomial equalities, unequal...
Chapter
We discuss computer-assisted construction and automated verification of regular polygonal knots by origami. Given a rectangular origami or a tape of an adequate length, we can construct the simplest knot by three folds. We can make the shape of the knot a regular pentagon if we fasten the knot rigidly. We analyze the knot fold formally so that we c...
Book
In this book, origami is treated as a set of basic geometrical objects that are represented and manipulated symbolically and graphically by computers. Focusing on how classical and modern geometrical problems are solved by means of origami, the book explains the methods not only with mathematical rigor but also by appealing to our scientific intuit...
Chapter
We discuss the verification in the origami geometry. In the preceding chapters, we discussed the origami construction using origami language ORIKOTO. During the construction, the logical formulas that describe the geometric configuration are formed and stored. We use those formulas for verifying the geometric properties of the constructed origami....

We present a generalization of mathematical origami to higher dimensions. We briefly explain Huzita-Justin's axiomatic treatment of mathematical origami. Then, for concrete-ness, we apply it to origami on 3-dimensional Euclidean space in which the fold operation consists of selecting a half-plane and reflecting one half-plane across it. We finally...
Article
This short note describes the first step of the application of the geometric algebra (GA) to the computational origami system called Eos. Main results are the formalization of GA in Isabelle/HOL and the re-statement of Huzita's basic fold operations in equalities in GA. By solving the equalities we can obtain the fold line (s) that are used in each...

Conference Paper
Full-text available
Making a knot on a rectangular origami or more generally on a tape of a finite length gives rise to a regular polygon. We present an automated algebraic proof that making two knots leads to a regular heptagon. Knot fold is regarded as a double fold operation coupled with Huzita's fold operations. We specify the construction by describing the geomet...

Conference Paper
Full-text available
Geometrical theorem proving is challenging in many ways. One that comes to our mind is to face directly the formal-izations of basic geometrical objects together with of methods for construction and formalization of subsequent construction of the geometrical objects of study. The other is to face proving geometrical theorems formally, i.e., to foll...
Conference Paper
Origami constructions have interesting properties that are not covered by standard euclidean geometry. Such properties have been shown with the help of computer algebra systems. Proofs performed with computer algebra systems can be accompanied by proof documents, still they lack complete mathematical rigorousity, like the one provided by proof assi...
Article
Morley’s theorem states that for any triangle, the intersections of its adjacent angle trisectors form an equilateral triangle. The construction of Morley’s triangle by the straightedge and compass method is impossible because of the well-known impossibility result for angle trisection. However, by origami, the construction of an angle trisector is...

Origami, i.e. paper folding, is a powerful tool for geometrical constructions. In 1989, Humiaki Huzita introduced six folding operations based on aligning one or more combinations of points and lines [6]. Jacques Justin, in his paper of the same proceedings, also presented a list of seven distinct operations [9]. His list included, without literal...

Computational Origami is a branch of the science of shapes, where we study computational and mathematical aspects of origami. One of the foundational studies of the computational origami is the axiomatic definition of origami foldability by Huzita in 1989.

Using higher-order functions is standard practice in functional programming, but most functional logic programming languages that have been described in the literature lack this feature. The natural way to deal with higher-order functions in the framework of (first-order) term rewriting is through so-called applicative term rewriting systems. In th...
