COMMENTS

Equivalently, the surface area of a regular octahedron with unit volume. Among Platonic solids, surface indices decrease with increasing number of faces: A232812 (tetrahedron), 6.0 (cube = hexahedron), this one, A232810 (dodecahedron), and A232809 (icosahedron).

An algebraic integer of degree 6 with minimal polynomial x^6 - 34992. - Charles R Greathouse IV, Apr 25 2016
