Outline 1 1D: Linkages zDefinitions yConfigurations yLocked chain in 3D yFixed-angle chains zApplication: Protein folding zOpen Problem: unit-length locked chains?

8
Linkages / Frameworks zLink / bar / edge = line segment zJoint / vertex = connection between endpoints of bars Closed chain / cycle / polygon Open chain / arc TreeGeneral

9
Configurations zConfiguration = positions of the vertices that preserves the bar lengths Non-self-intersecting configurations Self-intersecting zNon-self-intersecting = No bars cross

10
Locked Question zCan a linkage be moved between any two non-self-intersecting configurations? ? zCan any non-self-intersecting configuration be unfolded, i.e., moved to canonical configuration? yEquivalent by reversing and concatenating motions

11
Canonical Configurations zChains: Straight configuration zPolygons: Convex configurations zTrees: Flat configurations

12
Locked 3D Chains [Cantarella & Johnston 1998; Biedl, Demaine, Demaine, Lazard, Lubiw, ORourke, Overmars, Robbins, Streinu, Toussaint, Whitesides 1999] Cannot straighten some chains, even with universal joints.

13
Locked 2D Trees [Biedl, Demaine, Demaine, Lazard, Lubiw, ORourke, Robbins, Streinu, Toussaint, Whitesides 1998] zTheorem: Not all trees can be flattened yNo petal can be opened unless all others are closed significantly yNo petal can be closed more than a little unless it has already opened

14
Can Chains Lock? zCan every chain, with universal joints, be straightened? Chains Straightened? 2DYes 3D No: some locked 4D & beyondYes Polygonal Chains Cannot Lock in 4D. Roxana Cocan and J. O'Rourke Comput. Geom. Theory Appl., 20 (2001) 105-129.

15
Open 1 : Can Equilateral Chains Lock? Does there exist an open polygonal chain embedded in 3D, with all links of equal length, that is locked?

16
Protein Folding

18
Fixed-angle chain

19
Flattenable A configuration of a chain if flattenable if it can be reconfigured, without self- intersection, so that it lies flat in a plane. Otherwise the configuration is unflattenable, or locked.

20
Unflattenable fixed-angle chain

21
Open Problems 1 : Locked Equilateral Chains? (1)Is there a configuration of a chain with universal joints, all of whose links have the same length, that is locked? (2)Is there a configuration of a 90 o fixed- angle chain, all of whose links have the same length, that is locked? Perhaps: No? Perhaps: Yes for 1+ ?

Outline 2 2D: Paper zDefinitions yFoldings yCrease patterns zApplication: Map Folding zOpen Problem: Complexity of Map Folding

23
Foldings zPiece of paper = 2D surface ySquare, or polygon, or polyhedral surface zFolded state = isometric embedding yIsometric = preserve intrinsic distances (measured along paper surface) yEmbedding = no self- intersections except that multiple surfaces can touch with infinitesimal separation Flat origami crane Nonflat folding

24
Structure of Foldings zCreases in folded state = discontinuities in the derivative zCrease pattern = planar graph drawn with straight edges (creases) on the paper, corresponding to unfolded creases zMountain-valley assignment = specify crease directions as or Nonflat folding Flat origami crane

25
Map Folding zMotivating problem: yGiven a map (grid of unit squares), each crease marked mountain or valley yCan it be folded into a packet (whose silhouette is a unit square) via a sequence of simple folds? ySimple fold = fold along a line 1 67 2 58 3 49

26
Map Folding zMotivating problem: yGiven a map (grid of unit squares), each crease marked mountain or valley yCan it be folded into a packet (whose silhouette is a unit square) via a sequence of simple folds? ySimple fold = fold along a line 1 67 2 58 3 49

Map Folding zMotivating problem: yGiven a map (grid of unit squares), each crease marked mountain or valley yCan it be folded into a packet (whose silhouette is a unit square) via a sequence of simple folds? ySimple fold = fold along a line 6 9 zMore generally: Given an arbitrary crease pattern, is it flat-foldable by simple folds?

34
Open 2 : Map Folding Complexity? Given a rectangular map, with designated mountain/valley folds in a regular grid pattern, how difficult is it to decide if there is a folded state of the map realizing those crease patterns?

35
Outline 3 3D: Polyhedra zEdge-Unfolding yDefinitions xCut tree: spanning tree xNet yApplications: Manufacturing yOpen Problem: Does every polyhedron have a net?

36
Unfolding Polyhedra zCut along the surface of a polyhedron zUnfold into a simple planar polygon without overlap

37
Edge Unfoldings zTwo types of unfoldings: yEdge unfoldings: Cut only along edges yGeneral unfoldings: Cut through faces too

38
Cut Edges form Spanning Tree Lemma: The cut edges of an edge unfolding of a convex polyhedron to a simple polygon form a spanning tree of the 1-skeleton of the polyhedron. o spanning: to flatten every vertex o forest: cycle would isolate a surface piece o tree: connected by boundary of polygon
