A140521 Number of directed "king tours" on an n X n board. 4

COMMENTS

Or, number of directed Hamiltonian cycles in the graph P_n X P_n.

If the direction of the tour is not taken into account, the numbers for n > 1 must be halved (see A140519).

Computed using ZDDs (ZDD = "reduced, order, zero-suppressed binary decision diagram").
