 Year-end appeal: Please make a donation to the OEIS Foundation to support ongoing development and maintenance of the OEIS. We are now in our 59th year, we have over 358,000 sequences, and we’ve crossed 10,300 citations (which often say “discovered thanks to the OEIS”). Other ways to Give

%N Number of (n+1) X (n+1) -8..8 symmetric matrices with every 2 X 2 subblock having sum zero and one or two distinct values.

%C Symmetry and 2 X 2 block sums zero implies that the diagonal x(i,i) are equal modulo 2 and x(i,j) = (x(i,i)+x(j,j))/2*(-1)^(i-j).
