Origami Workshop: Folding the Schwartz Lantern
Date: Tuesday, October 1, 2013
Time: 3:30 – 4:30 p.m.
Location: LCB 323
Speaker: Radhika Gupta
Abstract: Given a compact, smooth surface embedded in ℝ3, we can approximate it by a PL (Piecewise Linear) surface with all vertices on the surface and having only triangular faces. When the vertices of the faces gets denser and denser and the diameter of triangles converge to 0, does the area of the PL surface converge to the area of the surface? We will 'fold' a counter example Schwartz gave!
