4×4 {-1, +1} matrix of maximal determinant

|Det R| = 2×23 = 2×11×23

Ratio of |Det R| to Hadamard bound: 1

M=RTR=R RT:

4 0 0 0
0 4 0 0
0 0 4 0
0 0 0 4

R:

++++
+-+-
++--
+--+

Notes:

  1. Maximal matrix first reported by Sylvester [Sy].
  2. Hadamard matrix.
  3. Sylvester matrix.
  4. R is unique up to equivalence.
