For n >= 1, a(n) is the number of chains of n X n (0, 1) matrices.

a(n) is also the number of chains in the power set of n^2 elements.

a(n) is the n^2-th term of A007047.

A chain of binary (crisp or Boolean or logical) matrices of order n can be thought of as a fuzzy matrix of order n.

a(n) is the number of distinct n X n fuzzy matrices.

a(n) is the sum of the n^2-th row of triangle A038719.

Let T(n, k) denote the number of chains of binary matrices of order n of length k, T(0, 0) = 1, T(0, k) = 0 for k > 0, thus T(n, k) = A038719(n, k).

a(n) = Sum_{k=0..n^2} T(n, k); a(0) = 1.

a(n) = A007047(n^2) = A007047(A000290(n)).
