COMMENTS

A centrally symmetric diagonal Latin square is a square with onetoone correspondence between elements within all pairs a[i][j] and a[n1i][n1j] (with rows and columns numbered from 0 to n1).
a(n)=0 for n=2 and n=3 (diagonal Latin squares of these sizes don't exist). It seems that a(n)=0 for n == 2 (mod 4).
Every doubly symmetric diagonal Latin square also has central symmetry. The converse is not true in general. It follows that a(4n) >= A287650(n).  Eduard I. Vatutin, May 03 2021
