COMMENTS

In the origami solution of doubling the cube (see the W. Lang link, p. 14, and a Sep 02 2014 comment on A002580) (1-s)/s = 2^{1/3}, or s^3 - s^2 + s - 1/3 = 0 appears, which has the real solution s = (2^(2/3) - 2^(1/3) +1)/3. In the link s is the length of the line segment(B,C') shown in Figure 16 on p. 14.
