COMMENTS
2^(1/3) is Hermite's constant gamma_3. - Jean-François 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
The cube root of any positive number can be connected to the Philo lines (or Philon lines) for a 90-degree angle. If the equation x^3-2 is represented using Lill's method, it can be shown that the path of the root 2^(1/3) creates the shortest segment (Philo line) from the x axis through (1,2) to the y axis. For more details see the article "Lill's method and the Philo Line for Right Angles" linked below. - Raul Prisacariu, Apr 06 2024

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
Equals Product_{k>=0} (1 + (-1)^k/(3*k + 2)). - Amiram Eldar, Jul 25 2020
From Peter Bala, Mar 01 2022: (Start)
Equals Sum_{n >= 0} (1/(3*n+1) - 1/(3*n-2))*binomial(1/3,n) = (3/2)* hypergeom([-1/3, -2/3], [4/3], -1). Cf. A290570.
Equals 4/3 - 4*Sum_{n >= 1} binomial(1/3,2*n+1)/(6*n-1) = (4/3)*hypergeom ([1/2, -1/6], [3/2], 1).
Equals hypergeom([-2/3, -1/6], [1/2], 1).
Equals hypergeom([2/3, 1/6], [4/3], 1). (End)
