COMMENTS

The length 36 binary self dual codes have been classified. - Nathan J. Russell, Feb 14 2016

This is number of binary self-dual codes of length 2n up to column permutation equivalence. Sequence A028362 gives an actual count of all possible binary self-dual codes of length 2n. - Nathan J. Russell, Nov 25 2018
