This site is supported by donations to The OEIS Foundation.



Please make a donation to keep the OEIS running. We are now in our 55th year. In the past year we added 12000 new sequences and reached 8000 citations (which often say "discovered thanks to the OEIS"). We need to raise money to hire someone to manage submissions, which would reduce the load on our editors and speed up editing.

A051568 Let M(n) (A051755) be the maximal number of queens that can be placed on an n X n chessboard so that each queen attacks exactly two other queens; a(n) is the number of non-equivalent solutions. "Non-equivalent" means none of the a(n) solutions can be mapped onto any other solution by board rotations through 90, 180 or 270 degrees or mirror operations along the two diagonals or center lines. 2
