COMMENTS

Square cupola: 12 vertices, 20 edges, and 10 faces.

Also, decimal expansion of 1 + product_{n=1..infinity} (1-1/(4n+2)^2). [Bruno Berselli, Apr 02 2013]

Decimal expansion of 1 + (least possible ratio of the side length of one inscribed square to the side length of another inscribed square in the same non-obtuse triangle). - L. Edson Jeffery, Nov 12 2014
