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").

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
