Title: Origami and paper folding.

Abstract: When we encounter origami, it is natural to ask ”what can be fold”? In the first part, we will first consider the axioms of origami, the answer to ”what can be done with one fold”, and compare them to Euclid’s axioms. Then prove that every 2D polygon can be fold. Thus we can fold many things, but the processes and results may or may not be efficient and elegant. Given an origami, unfold it gives a crease pattern, a collection of vertices and creases. In the second part, we will consider foldability of a crease patterns, in particular to determine foldability at a single vertex. In the last part we will discuss the Fold and Cut Theorem.
