 OFFSET 0,1 LINKS Table of n, a(n) for n=0..44. FORMULA G.f.: (x^13+12*x^3+50*x^2-68*x+86) / (x-1)^2. [Colin Barker, Dec 13 2012] [I suspect this is merely a conjecture. - N. J. A. Sloane, Jun 09 2018] EXAMPLE a(0)=86 because the maximal determinant that can achieved using the consecutive integers -4,-3,-2,-1,0,1,2,3,4 as matrix elements of a 3 X 3 matrix is det((-4,-3,0),(1,-1,4),(-2,3,2))=86. Another example for a(5)=412 is given in A085000.

Dale, Jan 14 2015 *) CROSSREFS Cf. A097400 = corresponding number of different determinants, A097401, A097693 = maximum of determinant if distinct matrix elements are selected from given range, a(5)=A085000(3) maximal determinant with elements (1..n^2).
