(Greetings from The On-Line Encyclopedia of Integer Sequences!)
A287644 Maximum number of transversals in a diagonal Latin square of order n. 4
1, 0, 0, 8, 15, 32, 133, 384, 2241 (list; graph; refs; listen; history; text; internal format)



Same as the maximum number of transversals in a Latin square of order n except n = 3.

a(10) >= 5504 from Parker and Brown.

Every diagonal Latin square is a Latin square, so A287645(n) <= a(n) <= A090741(n). - Eduard I. Vatutin, Sep 20 2020

a(11)>=37851, a(12)>=16600, a(13)>=1030367, a(14)>=428296, a(15)>=2429398, a(16)>=14720910, a(17)>=1606008513, a(19)>=87656896891, a(23)>=452794797220965, a(25)>=41609568918940625. - Eduard I. Vatutin, Mar 08 2020
