COMMENTS

Circumradius of pentagonal pyramid (Johnson solid 2) with edge 1. - Vladimir Joseph Stephan Orlovsky, Jul 19 2010

Circumscribed sphere radius for a regular icosahedron with unit edges. - Stanislav Sykora, Feb 10 2014

Equals sin(2*Pi/5). - Wesley Ivan Hurt, Sep 01 2014

Side length of the particular golden rhombus with diagonals 1 and phi (A001622); area is phi/2 (A019863). Thus, also the ratio side/(shorter diagonal) for any golden rhombus. Interior angles of a golden rhombus are always A105199 and A137218. - Rick L. Shepherd, Apr 10 2017

An algebraic number of degree 4; minimal polynomial is 16x^4 - 20x^2 + 5, which has these smaller, other solutions (conjugates): -A019881 < -A019845 < A019845 (sine of 36 degrees). - Rick L. Shepherd, Apr 11 2017
