This thesis is an exposition of the article Euclidean Construction and the Geometry of Origami written by Robert Geretschlager and published in the Mathematics Magazine Volume 68 Number 5, December 1995 issue.
This paper discusses the elementary Euclidean procedures used in solving problems involving geometric constructions using straightedge and compass. It also discusses the elementary geometric procedures of origami. The relationship between the elementary Euclidean procedures and elementary geometric procedures of origami is analyzed and explained in great detail. The paper also includes problems that are not solvable by geometric methods but solvable using applications of origami such as finding the cube root of a number, solving general cubic equations and trisecting angles.
