COMMENTS

We apply every symbol permutation on the representatives of isotopic classes to generate Latin squares of order n and calculate the determinants. We then compute the greatest common divisor of the values obtained.
These results are based upon work supported by the National Science Foundation under the grants numbered DMS1852378 and DMS1560019.

EXAMPLE

For n=4, the set of absolute values of the determinants is {0, 80, 160}, so the greatest common divisor of the determinants is 80. Therefore, a(4)=80.
