Main Title: Algorithms for Manufacturing Paperclips and Sheet Metal Structures
Author(s): Arkin, Esther M.

Type: Research Paper
Abstract: We study algorithmic aspects of bending wires and sheet metal into a specified structure. Problems of this type are closely related to the question of deciding whether a simple non-self-intersecting wire structure (a "carpenter's ruler") can be straightened, a problem that was open for several years and has only recently been solved in the affirmative.
Subject(s): folding
