This is a lower bound for the set of all n X n (0,1)-matrices having distinct, nonzero ordered rows and determinant 0 (compare A000410).

Here ordered means that we take only one representative from the n! matrices obtained by all permutations of the distinct rows of an n X n matrix.

a(n) is also the number of sets of n distinct nonzero (0,1)-vectors in R^n that do not span R^n.
