 Year-end appeal: Please make a donation to the OEIS Foundation to support ongoing development and maintenance of the OEIS. We are now in our 60th year, we have over 367,000 sequences, and we’ve reached 11,000 citations (which often say “discovered thanks to the OEIS”). Other ways to Give

 OFFSET 0,1 COMMENTS Consider two circular frames each of diameter D and with a separation of d. If d/D < r = 0.527697..., then a catenoid gives the absolute minimum area. If r < d/D < L = 0.66274... (Laplace limit), there are 3 minimal surfaces of revolution passing through the frames: 2 catenoids and the so-called Goldschmidt discontinuous solution consisting of the 2 disks. If d/D > L, there remains only the Goldschmidt solution. LINKS Table of n, a(n) for n=0..104.
