The doubling dimension of a metric space $X$ is the smallest positive integer $k$ such that every ball of $X$ can be covered by $2^k$ balls of half the radius.

It is well known that the doubling dimension $d(n)$ of the Euclidean space $\mathbb R^n$ is $O(n)$, which means that there is a constant $C$ such that for large $n$ one has $d(n)\leq Cn$. A posteriori, I can find a new constant $D$ that works for all $n$. I would like to have an explicit description of this new constant. In other words,

**Question:** What explicit and possibly nice and small constant $D>0$ would guarantee that $d(n)\leq Dn$, for all $n$?

**Edit.** As observed by Igor Rivin, $D=\log 2$ should be good for $n\geq7$, by a theorem of Verger-Gaugry. Any idea for all $n$? I have to clarify that at the moment I am not interested in the best possible constant, but in *some good-looking* constant, something to make aesthetically pleasant a certain formula that I found out.

Thank you in advance,
