COMMENTS

The polar angle (or apex angle) of a cone which cuts a fraction f of the full solid angle (i.e., subtends a solid angle of 4*Pi*f steradians) is given by arccos(1-2*f). For a golden cut of the sphere surface by a cone with apex in its center, set f = 1-1/phi, phi being the golden ratio A001622. This value is in radians, its equivalent in degrees is A238239.
