(Greetings from The On-Line Encyclopedia of Integer Sequences!)
A098072 An example of a 3 X 3 matrix with nonnegative elements that produces the maximum possible number of 10080 different determinants if all 9! permutations of the matrix elements are performed. The target is to find a matrix for which the largest element becomes as small as possible. 3
0, 1, 17, 43, 82, 87, 88, 91, 100 (list; graph; refs; listen; history; text; internal format)



In November 2004 this is the example with the smallest known largest element. It was found in a random search after 3 CPU (1.5 GHz Intel Itanium 2) months. No improvement was found in another 6 months of CPU time.
