A210206 Maximal number of 1s in a Hadamard matrix of order 4n. 0
12, 42, 90, 160, 240, 344, 462, 598, 756, 922, 1108, 1314, 1534, 1772 (list; graph; refs; listen; history; text; internal format)



The weight of a {-1,1} matrix is defined to be the number of elements equal to 1.  The excess is defined to be the sum of the matrix elements.  The weight and excess of an N x N matrix are related by (weight) = (excess + N^2) / 2.  Hence a(n) = (A004118+16n^2)/2.  - William P. Orrick, Jun 25 2015

N. J. A. Sloane, Hadamard matrices, gives representatives of all Hadamard matrix equivalence classes for sizes up to 28, and a representative of at least one equivalence class for sizes up to 256.  Most are not of maximal weight, however.
