A059954 Number of 2 X 2 matrices with elements from {0,1,2,...,n} and with Nim-Determinant 1. (The Nim-Determinant of the 2 X 2 matrix [a,b; c,d] is defined to be a*d xor b*c, where * denotes Nim-Multiplication.) 0

COMMENTS

The six 2 X 2 matrices of 0's and 1's with Nim-Determinant 1, the 60 with elements 0,1,2 and 3 and the 4080 with elements from {0,1,...,15} form groups under Nim-Matrix-multiplication (use the corresponding Nim operation instead of ordinary multiplication and addition/subtraction).
