Unlike its cousin, the determinant, few simple explicit frmulas are known for the permanents of specific matrices. One of these few is Scott's formula. ... The proofs all use a classical result of Borchardt (unfortunately of rather limited scope) that converts the problem to an evaluation of determinants, and this evaluation relies on the tractability of circulant matrices.
