This site is supported by donations to The OEIS Foundation.



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.

In this paper it is proved, that for every prime number p, the set of cyclic p-roots in C^p is finite. Moreover the number of cyclic p-roots counted with multiplicity is equal to (2p-2)!/(p-1)!^2. In particular, the number of complex circulant Hadamard matrices of size p, with diagonal entries equal to 1, is less than or equal to (2p-2)!/(p-1)!^2.

a(n) = (2*p_n - 2)!/(p_n - 1)!^2 where p_n = prime(n) = A000040(n). a(n) = A000142(2*A000040(n)-2)/((A000142(A000040(n)-1)^2).
