FORMULA
For n < 19, a(n) = n^2 - 2n + 2. For large n, l(n) <= a(n) < n^2 - 2n + 2 + l(n), where l(n) is Landau's function (A000793). It seems the exact value is still unknown.
EXAMPLE
a(4) = 10: the matrix [[0,0,0,1], [0,0,1,0], [1,0,0,0], [0,1,1,0]] generates a semigroup of order 10 under Boolean matrix multiplication.
