The OEIS is supported by the many generous donors to the OEIS Foundation.



Year-end appeal: Please make a donation to the OEIS Foundation to support ongoing development and maintenance of the OEIS. We are now in our 59th year, we have over 358,000 sequences, and we’ve crossed 10,300 citations (which often say “discovered thanks to the OEIS”).

A158865 Smallest maximal excess attained by an equivalence class of Hadamard matrices of order 4n. 0


%S 0,8,20,36,56,80,108,140

%N Smallest maximal excess attained by an equivalence class of Hadamard matrices of order 4n.

%C The excess of a {-1,1} matrix is the sum of its elements. The maximal excess of an equivalence class of Hadamard matrices (cf. A007299) is the largest excess attained by a member of the class. The largest maximal excess of any equivalence class is given by A004118.

%F For bounds on a(n), see A004118.

%e All equivalence classes in orders 20 and 28 attain the same maximal excess. In order 16, three classes attain maximal excess 64 and two attain maximal excess 56. In order 24, 56 equivalence classes attain maximal excess 112 and four attain maximal excess 108.
