(Greetings from The On-Line Encyclopedia of Integer Sequences!)
A332546 a(n) is the maximal size of a set of equiangular lines of rank n. 1
1, 3, 6, 6, 10, 16, 28, 14, 18, 18, 20, 22, 26, 28, 36, 40 (list; graph; refs; listen; history; text; internal format)



In the literature this sequence is denoted by M*(n), and A002853(n) is called M(n). Of course M*(n) <= M(n).

Comments from Yen-Chi Roger Lin, Feb 20 2020 (Start):

Wei-Hsuan Yu and I checked up to M*(10) = 18 in our paper.

Lemmens-Seidel (1973) implies that M_{1/3}(n) = 2*n - 2 for n >= 8. Up to n=12, no other angles whose reciprocal is an odd integer are possible because of the relative bound.

For n=11, there is no conference graph of order 22 in R^11 (see Theorem 11 of Fickus and Mixon), therefore M*(11) = M_{1/3}(11) = 20.

For n=12, M*(12) = M_{1/3}(12) = 22.

For n=13, M_(1/3)*(13) = 24, but M*(13) = 26. This follows from the existence of a real equiangular tight frame (of angle arccos 1/5) in R^13. Table 3 of the same Fickus-Mixon paper mentions it.

M*(15) = M(15) = 36 is an old result.
