 OFFSET 0,3 COMMENTS On an n X (n - 1)(n - 2)/2 X n(n - 1)/2 cuboid with n >= 5, the two points at greatest surface distance from a corner are the opposite corner and the point 1 in from each of the two edges on a smallest face which meet at the opposite corner; this greatest surface distance is sqrt(a(n)).
