I just checked my formula against Avni's extended list. We are very close. My odd N formula agrees at N=7 and disagrees slightly at N=9.

A(N_odd)= ((2^(n^2)+ (2^n)(n-1)(n+1))/n^2

My formula for even N is worse. It already disagrees at N=6

A(N_even)= ((2^(n^2)+ (2^(2n-2))(n-1)(n+1))/n^2

Note: If this chart does not display properly, viewing as text might help.
