The OEIS Foundation is supported by donations from users of the OEIS and by a grant from the Simons Foundation.

 Please make a donation to keep the OEIS running. We are now in our 56th year. In the past year we added 10000 new sequences and reached almost 9000 citations (which often say "discovered thanks to the OEIS"). Other ways to donate

 OFFSET 0,1 COMMENTS If the sides of a triangle form an arithmetic progression in the ratio 1:1+d:1+2d then when d=1/sqrt(3) it uniquely maximizes the area of the triangle. This triangle has approximate internal angles 25.588 degs, 42.941 degs, 111.471 degs. - Frank M Jackson, Jun 15 2011 When a cylinder is completely enclosed by a sphere, it occupies a fraction f of the sphere volume. The value of f has a trivial lower bound of 0, and an upper bound which is this constant. It is achieved iff the cylinder diameter is sqrt(2) times its height, and the sphere is circumscribed to it. A similar constant can be associated with any n-dimensional geometric shape. For 3D cuboids it is A165952. - Stanislav Sykora, Mar 07 2016 The ratio between the thickness and diameter of a dynamically fair coin having an equal probability, 1/3, of landing on each of its two faces and on its side after being tossed in the air. The calculation is based on the dynamic of rigid body (Yong and Mahadevan, 2011). See A020765 for a simplified geometrical solution. - Amiram Eldar, Sep 01 2020 LINKS Ivan Panchenko, Table of n, a(n) for n = 0..1000 Ee Hou Yong and L.
