COMMENTS

arctan(2) + A073000 = Pi/2.
arctan(2) is the (minimal) central angle of a regular icosahedron, which is the platonic solid having 20 faces and 12 vertices. The (minimal) central angle is AOB, where A and B are any neighboring pair of vertices and O is the center. To evaluate AOB, it is helpful to start with 12 vertices: (0,c*t,d), (d,0,c*t), (c*t,d,0) where c=(1 or 1) and d=(1 or 1) and t is the golden ratio, (1+sqrt(5))/2. For neighboring vertices, one can select (t,1,0) and (0,t,1).  Clark Kimberling, Feb 10 2009
Lesser interior angle (in radians) of a golden rhombus; i.e., either of the angles bisected by the longer diagonal. A137218 is the greater interior angle.  Rick L. Shepherd, Apr 10 2017
