The connections among origami, arithmetic, technology, expertise, and schooling were a subject matter of substantial curiosity now for numerous many years. whereas a lot of people have occurred upon discrete connections between those fields through the 20th century, the sector fairly took off whilst formerly remoted contributors started to toughen connections with one another via a chain of meetings exploring the hyperlinks among origami and "the open air world." The Fourth foreign assembly on Origami in technological know-how, arithmetic, and schooling (4OSME), held in September, 2006, on the California Institute of know-how in Pasadena, California, introduced jointly an exceptional variety of researchers offering on themes starting from arithmetic, to expertise, to academic makes use of of origami, to positive paintings, and to laptop courses for the layout of origami. chosen papers in response to talks provided at that convention make up the booklet you carry on your fingers.
