 OFFSET 0,5 COMMENTS In the Shevelev link the author proved that, for odd N>=3 and every n>=1, the determinant of circulant matrix of order N with entries in the first row (-1)^j*Sum{k>=0}(-1)^k*binomial(n, N*k+j), j=0..N-1, is 0. This sequence shows what happens for the first even N>3. LINKS Table of n, a(n) for n=0..21.
