COMMENTS

a(n) is also equal to the number of 2 X 2 matrices with entries in {-n,..,0,..n} with no elements repeated having determinant = trace^n except a(4). For permanent = trace^n, a(4) = 16 but for determinant = trace^n, a(4) = 24.

a(n) mod 4 = 0.

EXAMPLE

For n = 5, the possible matrices are [-3,-5,-1,2], [-3,-1,-5,2],

[-3,1,5,2], [-3,5,1,2], [-2,-4,-1,2], [-2,-1,-4,2], [-2,1,4,2], [-2,4,1,2], [-1,1,3,2], [-1,3,1,2], [2,-5,-1,-3], [2,-4,-1,-2],

[2,-1,-5,-3], [2,-1,-4,-2], [2,1,3,-1], [2,1,4,-2], [2,1,5,-3],

[2,3,1,-1], [2,4,1,-2] and [2,5,1,-3].

Here each of the matrices is defined as M = [a,b,c,d] where a = M[1][1], b = M[1][2], c = M[2][1], d = M[2][2]. There are 20 possibilities. So, for n = 5, a(n) = 20.

PROG

(Python)

def t(n):

    s=0

    for a in range(-n, n+1):

        for b in range(-n, n+1):

            if a!=b:

                for c in range(-n, n+1):

                    if a!=c and b!=c:

                        for d in range(-n, n+1):

                            if d!=a and d!=b and d!=c:

                                if (a*d+b*c)==(a+d)**n:

                                    s+=1

    return s

for i in range(0, 104):

    print str(i)+" "+str(t(i))
