EXAMPLE

There is no solution for n=0,...,30, (note offset=31). For n=0,1 we have the trivial square circles {0} and {0,1}, which are not included in the sequence.

There are only six possible square loops of the minimum length (n=31 case):

{1,0,4,5,31,18,7,29,20,16,9,27,22,3,13,12,24,25,11,14,2,23,26,10,6,30,19,17,8,28,21,15},

{1,0,4,12,13,3,6,30,19,17,8,28,21,15,10,26,23,2,14,22,27,9,16,20,29,7,18,31,5,11,25,24},

{1,0,4,21,28,8,17,19,30,6,3,13,12,24,25,11,5,31,18,7,29,20,16,9,27,22,14,2,23,26,10,15},

{1,15,10,26,23,2,14,22,27,9,16,20,29,7,18,31,5,11,25,0,4,21,28,8,17,19,30,6,3,13,12,24},

{1,15,21,28,8,17,19,30,6,10,26,23,2,14,11,5,31,18,7,29,20,16,9,27,22,3,13,12,4,0,25,24},

{1,15,21,28,8,17,19,30,6,10,26,23,2,14,11,25,0,4,5,31,18,7,29,20,16,9,27,22,3,13,12,24}.

In the n=32,33 (resp.) cases, there are three square loop solutions:

{1,0,4,32,17,19,30,6,3,13,12,24,25,11,5,31,18,7,29,20,16,9,27,22,14,2,23,26,10,15,21,28,8},

{1,8,28,21,4,32,17,19,30,6,3,13,12,24,25,11,5,31,18,7,29,20,16,0,9,27,22,14,2,23,26,10,15},

{1,8,28,21,15,10,26,23,2,14,22,27,9,16,20,29,7,18,31,5,11,25,0,4,32,17,19,30,6,3,13,12,24},

and

{1,0,4,32,17,19,30,6,3,13,12,24,25,11,5,20,29,7,18,31,33,16,9,27,22,14,2,23,26,10,15,21,28,8},

{1,8,28,21,4,32,17,19,30,6,3,13,12,24,25,11,5,20,29,7,18,31,33,16,0,9,27,22,14,2,23,26,10,15},

{1,8,28,21,15,10,26,23,2,14,22,27,9,16,33,31,18,7,29,20,5,11,25,0,4,32,17,19,30,6,3,13,12,24}
