COMMENTS

Equivalently, minimum surface area among all closed cones enclosing a unit volume. It is attained when the cone is right circular and its height equals the diameter of its base multiplied by sqrt(2). Considering one of the ways of marketing icecream, we might call it the "frozen cone constant".

For a general definition of surface index, see A232808.
