COMMENTS

A strong complete mapping of a cyclic group (Zn,+) is a permutation f(x) of Zn such that f(0)=0 and that f(x)-x and f(x)+x are both permutations.

a(n)=TQ(n)/n where TQ(n) is the number of solutions of toroidal n-queen problem (A007705).

EXAMPLE

f(x)=2x in (Z7,+) is a strong complete mapping of Z7 since f(0)=0 and both f(x)-x (=x) and f(x)+x (=3x) are permutations of Z7.
