Folding The Unfoldable - A Method For Constructing Complex-Curved Geometry With Quad Edge Panels
This paper explains a method will be used during a workshop for constructing complex-curved geometry with quad edge panels. In this workshop, we demonstrate that quad-edge mesh data structure can efficiently be used to construct complex large shapes. With hands-on experiments, we will show a vast variety of shapes can be constructed using square, rectangular, parallelogram and extruded-line shaped panels. In addition, using a system we have recently developed to unfold polygonal mesh, we will de

Gastrophysics – The New Science of Eating [Audio]
Speaker(s): Professor Charles Spence | Why do we consume 35% more food when eating with one more person, and 75% more when with three? Why are 27% of drinks bought on aeroplanes tomato juice?

2.4 Ancient sources

As you have seen, exploring the Classical world is an interdisciplinary pursuit. Perhaps the most immediately obvious aspect of this interdisciplinary approach is that you will confront different kinds of ancient sources, often simultaneously, since one of them by itself may not be sufficient for answering a particular question you may have. Quite apart from whether a source is ancient or modern, the different disciplines that make up Classical Studies use different kinds of source material.
