(Greetings from The On-Line Encyclopedia of Integer Sequences!)
A090246 The largest subset of P(Z/3Z)^n that does not contain 3 collinear points. 2


%S 2,4,10,20,56

%N The largest subset of P(Z/3Z)^n that does not contain 3 collinear points.

%C 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.

%C 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.

%C So far this sequence agrees with A104442.
