A287644 Maximum number of transversals in a diagonal Latin square of order n. 7
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 and every orthogonal diagonal Latin square is a diagonal Latin square, so 0 <= A287645(n) <= A357514(n) <= a(n) <= A090741(n). - Eduard I. Vatutin, added Sep 20 2020, updated Mar 03 2023

a(11) >= 37851, a(12) >= 198144, a(13) >= 1030367, a(14) >= 3477504, a(15) >= 36362925, a(16) >= 244744192, a(17) >= 1606008513, a(19) >= 87656896891, a(23) >= 452794797220965, a(25) >= 41609568918940625. - Eduard I. Vatutin, Mar 08 2020, updated Mar 10 2022

Also a(n) is the maximum number of transversals in an orthogonal diagonal Latin square of order n for all orders except n=6 where orthogonal diagonal Latin squares don't exist. - Eduard I. Vatutin, Jan 23 2022

All cyclic diagonal Latin squares are diagonal Latin squares, so A348212((n-1)/2) <= a(n) for all orders n of which cyclic diagonal Latin squares exist. - Eduard I. Vatutin, Mar 25 2021
