A \((10,40,1/6)\) spherical code found by W. D. Smith  and conjectured to be optimal in terms of minimizing potential energy functions . A beautified set of coordinates can be found on the site .
- Spherical sharp configuration — The Smith spherical code is conjectured to be a global minimum of completely monotonic potential functions .
