%N Number of (undirected) Hamiltonian cycles on the n X n king graph.

%C Or, number of Hamiltonian cycles in the graph P_n X P_n (strong product of two paths of length n-1).

%C If the direction of the tour is to be taken into account, the numbers for n > 1 must be multiplied by 2 (see A140521).

%C Computed using ZDDs (ZDD = "reduced, order, zero-suppressed binary decision diagram").
