COMMENTS

Equivalently, minimum external surface area among all open cones (not counting the base) enclosing a unit volume. It is attained when the cone is right circular and its height equals the radius of its base multiplied by sqrt(2). We might call it the 'teepee constant', related to the need to minimize the material needed to construct it.

For a general definition of surface index, see A232808.
