This site is supported by donations to The OEIS Foundation.



Please make a donation to keep the OEIS running. We are now in our 55th year. In the past year we added 12000 new sequences and reached 8000 citations (which often say "discovered thanks to the OEIS"). We need to raise money to hire someone to manage submissions, which would reduce the load on our editors and speed up editing.

A090246 The largest subset of P(Z/3Z)^n that does not contain 3 collinear points. 2
2, 4, 10, 20, 56 (list; graph; refs; listen; history; text; internal format)



P(Z/3Z)^n is the projective space of n dimensions over the finite field Z/3Z. This is the size of the largest subset which does not contain 3 points lying in a line.

Davis and Maclagan described a game similar to the game SET that could be played in this space using projective lines, rather than in (Z/3Z)^n using the algebraic notion of line. This sequence is the analog of A090245 for this game.

So far this sequence agrees with A104442.
