%C For m < n, the maximal number of nonattacking queens that can be placed on the n by m rectangular toroidal chessboard is gcd(m,n), except in the case m=3, n=6.

%C The determinant of the matrix of the first n rows and columns is A001088(n). [Smith, Mansion] - _Michael Somos_, Jun 25 2012

%C Imagine a torus having regular polygonal cross-section of m sides. Now, break the torus and twist the free ends, preserving rotational symmetry, then reattach the ends. Let n be the number of faces passed in twisting the torus before reattaching it. For example, if n = m, then the torus has exactly one full twist. Do this for arbitrary m and n (m > 1, n > 0). Now, count the independent, closed paths on the surface of the resulting torus, where a path is "closed" if and only if it returns to its starting point after a finite number of times around the surface of the torus. Conjecture: this number is always gcd(m,n). NOTE: This figure constitutes a group with m and n the binary arguments and gcd(m,n) the resulting value. Twisting in the reverse direction is the inverse operation, and breaking & reattaching in place is the identity operation. - _Jason Richardson-White_, May 06 2013

%C Regarded as a triangle, table of gcd(n - k +1, k) for 1 <= k <= n. - _Franklin T. Adams-Watters_, Oct 09 2014

%C The n-th row of the triangle is 1,...,1, if and only if, n + 1 is prime. - _Alexandra Hercilia Pereira Silva_, Oct 03 2020
