 OFFSET 1,3 COMMENTS The p-th root r(p) of the expected value E(|x|^p) for various distributions appears, for example, in chemical physics, where some interactions depend on high powers of interatomic distances. When x is distributed normally with zero mean and standard deviation 1, r(p) evaluates to r(p) = ((p-1)!!*w(p))^(1/p), where w(p) = 1 for even p and sqrt(2/Pi) for odd p. Note that, by definition, r(2) = 1 and r(1) = w(1) = A076668. The present constant is a = r(3).
