 OFFSET 1,2 COMMENTS M(n) is defined as M[i,j,n] = j + n*(i-1) if i is odd and M[i,j,n] = n*i - j + 1 if i is even. det(M(1)) = 1, det(M(2)) = -5 and det(M(n)) = 0 for n > 2 (proved). The trace of the matrix M(n) is A317614(n). LINKS Vaclav Kotesovec, Table of n, a(n) for n = 1..35 EXAMPLE For n = 1 the matrix M(1) is 1 with permanent a(1) = 1. For n = 2 the matrix M(2) is 1, 2 4, 3 with permanent a(2) = 11. For n = 3 the matrix M(3) is 1, 2, 3 6, 5, 4 7, 8, 9 with permanent a(3) = 490.
