COMMENTS

2^(1/3) is Hermite's constant gamma_3. - Jean-Fran├žois Alcover, Sep 02 2014, after Steven Finch.

For doubling the cube using origami and a standard geometric construction employing two right angles see the W. Lang link, Application 2, p. 14, and the references given there. See also the L. Newton link. - Wolfdieter Lang, Sep 02 2014

Length of an edge of a cube with volume 2. - Jared Kish, Oct 16 2014

For any positive real c, the mappings R(x)=(c*x)^(1/4) and S(x)=sqrt(c/x) have the same unique attractor c^(1/3), to which their iterated applications converge from any complex plane point. The present case is obtained setting c=2. It is noteworthy that in this way one can evaluate cube roots using only square roots. The CROSSREFS list some other cases of cube roots to which this comment might apply. - Stanislav Sykora, Nov 11 2015

FORMULA

(-2^(1/3) - 2^(1/3) * sqrt(-3))^3 = (-2^(1/3) + 2^(1/3) * sqrt(-3))^3 = 16. - Alonso del Arte, Jan 04 2015

Set c=2 in the identities c^(1/3) = sqrt(c/sqrt(c/sqrt(c/...))) = sqrt(sqrt(c*sqrt(sqrt(c*sqrt(sqrt(...)))))). - Stanislav Sykora, Nov 11 2015
