Ostwald (eds.), Architecture and Mathematics from Antiquity to the Future, DOI 10.1007/978-3-319-00137-1_38, Springer International Publishing Switzerland 2015

EXAMPLE

The following table is provided in the Zuk article:

.

a(8)=108 is in the sequence, because the ratio 144/108 corresponds to the plan ratio of 4:3.
