COMMENTS

Conjecture: a(n) is nonzero for any n > 21.

Zhi-Wei Sun also made the following similar conjecture:

  Let A(n) be the n X n determinant with (i,j)-entry equal to 1 or 0 according as i + j is a cube or not. Then A(n) is nonzero for any n > 176.

EXAMPLE

a(1) = 0 since 1 + 1 = 2 is not a square.

MATHEMATICA

SQ[n_]:=IntegerQ[Sqrt[n]]

a[n_]:=Det[Table[If[SQ[i+j]==True, 1, 0], {i, 1, n}, {j, 1, n}]]
