Please make a donation to keep the OEIS running. We are now in our 56th year. In the past year we added 10000 new sequences and reached almost 9000 citations (which often say "discovered thanks to the OEIS").

COMMENTS

Determinant of the n times n matrix with T(n,n)=0 is equal to 1 for every such matrix. Tested up to n=13.

For elements where row index is greater than column index, every negative number appears to give a positive contribution while every positive number appears to give a negative contribution to the determinant of the matrix. The size of a such contribution appears to be 1 when replacing the number with a zero. [From Mats Granvik, Sep 22 2008]
