COMMENTS
Sqrt(8) = 2*sqrt(2) is the length of the longest (rigid) ladder that can be carried horizontally around a right angled corner in a hallway of unit width. - Lekraj Beedassy, Apr 19 2006
Continued fraction expansion is 2 followed by {1, 4} repeated. - Harry J. Smith, Jun 05 2009
This is the second Lagrange number. - Alonso del Arte, Dec 06 2011
Also 2*sqrt(2) is the ratio of the perimeter of a square to its diameter (diagonal length). - Rick L. Shepherd, Dec 29 2016
Uchiyama shows that every interval (n, n + c*n^(1/4)) contains an integer that is the sum of two squares, where c = 2^(3/2). - Michel Marcus, Jan 03 2018
This is the area of the eighth-smallest triangle with integer side lengths (2, 3, 3), or the seventh-smallest triangle if two smaller triangles with the same area are counted only once (see A331251). - Hugo Pfoertner, Feb 12 2020
Diameter of a sphere whose surface area equals 8*Pi. More generally, the square root of x is also the diameter of a sphere whose surface area equals x*Pi. - Omar E. Pol, Feb 13 2020
Sqrt(8) = area between the curves y = sin(x) and y = cos(x) for Pi/4 < x < 5 Pi/4; this is one of infinitely many congruent convex regions bounded by the two curves. - Clark Kimberling, May 03 2020
Area of the regular 8-gon with circumradius =1. - R. J. Mathar, Aug 24 2023

FORMULA
Equals 1 + Sum_{n>=1} ( Product_{k=1..n} (2k+1)/(4k) ). - Bruno Berselli, Mar 16 2014
Equals 2*A002193. - R. J. Mathar, Jan 14 2021
From Peter Bala, Mar 01 2022: (Start)
Equals 3*Sum_{n >= 0} (1/(4*n+1) - 1/(4*n-3))*binomial(1/2,n). Cf. A002580 and A175576.
Equals 4*hypergeom([-1/2, -3/4], [5/4], -1). (End)
Equals 8 * A020765. - R. J. Mathar, Aug 24 2023

Sqrt(8) = sqrt(1+2*i*sqrt(2)) + sqrt(1-2*i*sqrt(2)) = sqrt(1/2+2*i*sqrt(3)) + sqrt(1/2-2*i*sqrt(3)), where i=sqrt(-1). - Bruno Berselli, Nov 20 2012
