  • Knoll, Eva (2008)
    This article reports on the resolution of a mathematical problem that emerged when two ideas were brought together. The first idea consists of a method for constructing a decorated bracelet made with safety pins that ...
  • Knoll, Eva (International Society for Geometry and Graphics, 1998)
    Topology teaches us that the two dimensional plane and three dimensional space have a comparable structure. In fact, this apparent parallel is deeply rooted in our consciousness and is applied in many domains, including ...
  • Knoll, Eva (Bridges: Mathematical Connections in Art, Music, and Science, 2003)
    The goal of this paper is to illustrate how octahedra and tetrahedra pack together to fill space, and to identify and visualize the dual to this packing. First, we examine a progression of 2-D and 3-D space-filling packings ...
  • Knoll, Eva (Bridges: Mathematical Connections in Art, Music, and Science, 2000)
    This is a preliminary report on design features of large, light-weight, modular equilateral triangles and classroom activities developed for using them. They facilitate the fast teaching of three dimensional geometry ...
  • Knoll, Eva (2009)
    Crafts are generally known for pieces whose structure and geometry are derived from the constraints of the techniques used. In particular, the look of specific patterns and textures are the natural product of the structure ...
  • Knoll, Eva (2013-02-28)
    Le parallèle entre les structures des mondes 2-D et 3-D est un concept qui a depuis longtemps été pris pour acquis. La question peut se poser, pourtant, sur la façon dont cela se traduit dans le monde pratique, ...
  • Knoll, Eva; Sharp, John; Tobie, Roger (2008)
    D-Forms have been the subject of papers at previous Bridges Conferences, but not as a workshop. They are created by joining the edges of two flat surfaces that have the same length of perimeter. A related problem is to ...
