A098926 Permanent of the (0,1)-matrix with ij-th entry equal to zero iff (i=1,j=1),(i=1,j=2),(i=1,j=3),(i=2,j=3),(i=3,j=3),... In other words, the ij-th entry of the matrix is zero iff it is on the path which start from the entry (i=1,j=1) and moves in the matrix alternating 3 steps to the right to 3 steps down. 0

Table of n, a(n) for n=3..24.

EXAMPLE

a(3) = 12 because 12 is the permanent of the following 5 X 5 matrix:

    [0 0 0 1 1]

    [1 1 0 1 1]

    [1 1 0 0 0]

    [1 1 1 1 0]

    [1 1 1 1 0]
