COMMENTS

Ratio between the width and the depth of the gravitoid curve delimiting any axial section of a gravidome. A gravidome is an axially symmetric homogeneous body shaped in a way to produce, given a constant mass, the maximum possible gravitation field at a point (the barypole) on its surface. It is shaped like a tomato; with respect to a sphere it is somewhat flattened and the gravitoid constant describes the amount of the flattening. The terms "gravidome" for the body and "gravitoid" for its axial perimeter curve were coined in 2006 by S. Sykora.

An algebraic number of degree 4 and denominator 3; minimal polynomial 27x^4 - 64. - Charles R Greathouse IV, Apr 21 2016
