COMMENTS

In sequence A048954, a determinant of a circulant matrix, a(n) = 0 when 6 divides n. The determinant of a matrix can be interpreted as the signed volume of a simplex whose vertices are given by the rows of the matrix. For n a multiple of 6, the points form a lower dimensional simplex that has zero volume in n-space. However, the volume in n-2 space is positive and is given by the product of the nonzero eigenvalues.

EXAMPLE

a(6) = -49392 because -1, -28, -28 and 63 are the four nonzero eigenvalues of the matrix {{1,6,15,20,15,6}, {6,1,6,15,20,15}, {15,6,1,6,15,20}, {20,15,6,1,6,15}, {15,20,15,6,1,6}, {6,15,20,15,6,1}}.

MATHEMATICA

Table[x=Binomial[n, Range[0, n-1]]; m=Table[RotateRight[x, i-1], {i, n}]; e=Eigenvalues[m]; prod=1; Do[If[e[[i]]!=0, prod=prod*e[[i]]], {i, n}]; FullSimplify[prod], {n, 15}]
