 OFFSET 1,1 COMMENTS Equivalently, the minimum external surface area among all pots or cups (half-open cylinders) delimiting a unit volume. It is attained when the cylinder is right circular and its height matches the radius of its base. We might call it the 'cooking pot constant'. It minimizes the material needed to make the pot (and also its cooling rate). Its determination is a nice exercise in elementary analysis. For a general definition of surface index, see A232808.
