 OFFSET 2,1 COMMENTS An elephant sequence, see A175654. For the corner squares 16 A[5] vectors, with decimal values between 59 and 440, lead to this sequence (with a leading 1 added). For the central square these vectors lead to the companion sequence A098156 (without a(1)). - Johannes W. Meijer, Aug 15 2010 LINKS Harry J. Smith, Table of n, a(n) for n = 2..200 M. Azaola and F.
