Page 1: Three algorithms for unfolding 2D chains: ordinary differential equation given by expansive infinitesimal motion, pseudotriangulations, and energy
You can view the papers on each of the three algorithms: original ordinary differential equation, pseudotriangulations, and energy.
These are rough, personal lecture notes handwritten by Erik Demaine used during lecture. Their primary purpose is for reading/review by students of the class.
