COMMENTS

A code loop is a Moufang 2loop Q with a central subloop Z of order 2 such that Q/Z is an elementary abelian group. The library named code in LOOPS version 2.2.0, Computing with quasigroups and loops in GAP (Groups, Algorithm and Programming), contains all nonassociative code loops of order less than 65. Every code loop is a Moufang loop but not conversely. The GAP command IsCodeLoop(MoufangLoop(n,m)) gives the mth nonassociative code loop of order n in the LOOPS Package library. Code loops of small orders were classified by G. P. Nagy and P. Vojtechovsky.
(Groups are specifically excluded from the counts.)

EXAMPLE

a(16)=5 because all the 5 Moufang loops of order 16 are code loops;
a(32)=16 because only 16 of the 71 Moufang loops of order 32 are code loops.
