%N Maximal number of 1s in a Hadamard matrix of order 4n.

%C 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
