REFERENCES

On comp.soft-sys.math.mathematica (Mar 20 2002) Mark R. Diamond asked for a nice way to generate matrices 'along the diagonals' of the form (see example). The coding is from Wouter Meeussen.

LINKS

Table of n, a(n) for n=1..55.

FORMULA

a(n) = n*(n+2)/4, n = 0 mod 4; (n^2+1)/2, n = 1 mod 4; -n*(n+2)/4, n = 2 mod 4; -(n^2+1)/2, n = 3 mod 4;

G.f.: x*(x^4 - 2*x^2 - 2*x + 1) / (x^2 + 1)^3.

EXAMPLE

a(4) = 6 = 4*6/4 = |1 3 6 10 | 2 5 9 13 | 4 8 12 15 | 7 11 14 16|.

MATHEMATICA

f[n_] := Table[(i + j - 1)((i + j - 1) - 1)/2 + 1 + (j - 1) - Mod[i + j - 1, n, 1]^2 Quotient[i + j - 1, n, 1], {i, n}, {j, n}]; Table[ Det[ f[n]], {n, 1, 50}]
