Abstract

We study the Veech group of an origami, i.e., of a translation surface, tessellated by parallelograms. We show that it is isomorphic to the image of a certain subgroup of {\small $\aut^+(F_2)$ in $\slzwei(\ZZ) \cong \out^+(F_2)$}. Based on this, we present an algorithm that determines the Veech group.
