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.

Table of n, a(n) for n=0..44.

FORMULA

G.f.: (x^13+12*x^3+50*x^2-68*x+86) / (x-1)^2. [Colin Barker, Dec 13 2012] [I suspect this is merely a conjecture. - N. J. A. Sloane, Jun 09 2018]

EXAMPLE

a(0)=86 because the maximal determinant that can achieved using the consecutive integers -4,-3,-2,-1,0,1,2,3,4 as matrix elements of a 3 X 3 matrix is det((-4,-3,0),(1,-1,4),(-2,3,2))=86. Another example for a(5)=412 is given in A085000.
