COMMENTS

Dodecahedron: A three dimensional figure with 12 faces, 20 vertices, and 30 edges.

Appears as a coordinate in a degree-7 quadrature formula on 12 points over the unit circle [Stroud & Secrest]. - R. J. Mathar, Oct 12 2011

FORMULA

Equals (sqrt(3)+sqrt(15))/4 = sqrt((9+3*sqrt(5))/8).

The minimal polynomial is 16*x^4 - 36*x^2 + 9. [Joerg Arndt, Feb 05 2014]
