 OFFSET 1,2 COMMENTS Conjecture 1: a(n) = 1 + P(n^2)*n^2*(n^2-1)/672000, where P(n) = n^6 - 19*n^5 + 123*n^4 - 337*n^3 + 12376*n^2 - 44144*n + 40000. Conjecture 2: For any positive integers m and n, the determinant of the matrix [(i-j)^m+d(i,j)]_{1<=i,j<=n} has the form 1 + n^2*(n^2-1)*P(n), where P(n) is a polynomial in n with rational number coefficients whose degree is (m+1)^2-4.
