COMMENTS

We apply every symbol permutation on the representatives of isotopic classes to generate Latin squares of order n and calculate the determinants.

These results are based upon work supported by the National Science Foundation under the grants numbered DMS-1852378 and DMS-1560019.

EXAMPLE

For n=5, the only isotopic class that produces determinants 825, 1875, and 2325 is the one with [[1, 2, 3, 4, 5] [2, 3, 5, 1, 4], [3, 5, 4, 2, 1], [4, 1, 2, 5, 3], [5, 4, 1, 3, 2]] as a representative, and the only isotopic class that that produces determinants 1200 and 1575 is the one with [[1, 2, 3, 4, 5], [2, 4, 1, 5, 3], [3, 5, 4, 2, 1], [4, 1, 5, 3, 2], [5, 3, 2, 1, 4]] as a representative.

Therefore, a(5)=2 since there are two isotopic classes that produce determinants that are unique to that isotopic class.
