(Formerly M0289)
1, 1, 1, 1, 2, 2, 3, 4, 7, 9, 16, 25, 55, 103, 261, 731, 3295, 24147, 519492 (list; graph; refs; listen; history; text; internal format)



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
