COMMENTS

For large values of n it is always possible to find a matrix that produces A088021(3)=10080 different determinants. Examples are given in the link. Currently (October 2004) the smallest known n for which a(n)=10080 is 100. The elements of the corresponding matrix are given in A098072.

EXAMPLE

a(10)=1509: A corresponding set of matrix elements is {10,9,9,8,7,5,2,1,0}.
