Paneled and Molecular Polyhedra: How Stable Are They?

  • Ileana Streinu


Polyhedral models can be physically constructed in a variety of ways. The inexpensive methods described in  Chapter 2 include sticks connected at endpoints, or paper, creased and glued with tape along edges. But the resulting structures are not always sufficiently stable: sticks may slip off their connecting joints, paper bends, and even when sturdy carton is used, not having enough tape may lead to loose paper ends or a flexible polyhedral model.
