 OFFSET 1,2 COMMENTS Dodecahedron: A three dimensional figure with 12 faces, 20 vertices, and 30 edges. Appears as a coordinate in a degree-7 quadrature formula on 12 points over the unit circle [Stroud & Secrest]. - R. J. Mathar, Oct 12 2011 LINKS Chai Wah Wu, Table of n, a(n) for n = 1..10001 A. H. Stroud, D. Secrest, Approximate integration formulas for certain spherically symmetric regions, Math. Comp. 17 (82) (1963) 105 Wikipedia, Dodecahedron Wolfram alpha, Dodecahedron FORMULA Equals (sqrt(3)+sqrt(15))/4 = sqrt((9+3*sqrt(5))/8). The minimal polynomial is 16*x^4 - 36*x^2 + 9.
