COMMENTS

2^(1/3) is Hermite's constant gamma_3.  JeanFrançois 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
