### Exact value of $0<\wp^{-1}(2^{-{2/3}})<2$ with $\wp$ the Weierstrass elliptic function

I am investigating solutions to the differential equation $$\ddot{y}(t)=6y(t)^2,\dot{y}(0), y(0)=y_0>0.\tag{1}\label{1}$$ Let $\wp(t)$ be the Weierstrass elliptic function with elliptic invariants ...

### What is the surface area of the finite part of the Cayley nodal cubic surface?

The Cayley nodal surface is defined by the equation $x^2+y^2+z^2-2xyz=1$. The finite part of the surface is the tetrahedral part bounded by the 4 nodes $(1,1,1)$, $(1,-1,-1)$, $(-1,1,-1)$, $(-1,-1,1)$....
