(Greetings from The On-Line Encyclopedia of Integer Sequences!)
A331491 a(n) is the permanent of a 2n X 2n antisymmetric Toeplitz matrix M(2n) whose first row consists of a single zero followed by successive positive integers repeated (A004526). 2

Conjecture: for n > 0, det(M(2n)) = n^2 = A000290(n) with det(M(0)) = 1.

EXAMPLE

For n = 2 the matrix M(4) is

   0  1  1  2

  -1  0  1  1

  -1 -1  0  1

  -2 -1 -1  0

with permanent a(2) = 8.

MATHEMATICA

nmax:=13; k[i_]:=Floor[i/2]; a[n_]:=If[n==0, 1, Permanent[ToeplitzMatrix[-Array[k, n], Array[k, n]]]]; Table[a[2n], {n, 0, nmax}]

PROG

(PARI) tm(n) = {my(m = matrix(n, n, i, j, if (i==1, floor(j/2), if (j==1, -floor(i/2))))); for (i=2, n, for (j=2, n, m[i, j] = m[i-1, j-1]; ); ); m; }

a(n) = matpermanent(tm(2*n));
