COMMENTS

Volume of regular tetrahedron with unit edge. - Stanislav Sykora, May 31 2012

In the dragon curve fractal, (5/6)*sqrt(2) = 1.1785.... is the maximum distance of any point from curve start.  Such a maximum must be to a vertex of the convex hull.  Hull vertices are shown by Benedek and Panzone (theorem 3, page 85) and their P8 = 7/6 - (1/6)i at distance sqrt((7/6)^2 + (1/6)^2) is the maximum. - Kevin Ryde, Nov 22 2019
