(Too long for a comment.)

I managed to numerically extract the condition numbers up to $n = 112$. I have plotted this on a log scale:

It looks a bit faster than linear on a log scale; maybe a small quadratic term? But it looks no faster than $e^{n^2}$. The best fit line is dashed. The best fit parabola of the natural logarithm of the condition number is $-33.5838 + 8.09351n + 0.0217842n^2$. I also tried fitting a cubic polynomial as a sanity check, obtaining $-19.6223 + 6.71268n + 0.0516761n^2 - 0.000174806n^3$; that the coefficient of $n^3$ is negative and small might be indicative that it isn't "real", but of course we can't rule that out numerically.

Code:

```
#include <Eigen/Dense>

using boost::math::factorial;
using std::log;
using std::sqrt;
int main() {
std::ofstream of{"data.csv"};
std::cout << std::setprecision(std::numeric_limits<Real>::digits10);
of << "n, cond(M)\n";
for (int n = 2; n < 200; ++n) {
std::cout << "n = " << n << "\n";
Mat X = Mat::Zero(n,n);
for (int i = 0; i < n; ++i) {
for (int j = 0; j < n; ++j) {
Real d3 = Real(2*n - i - j - 1);
X(i,j) = 1/(factorial<Real>(n - i - 1)*factorial<Real>(n - j - 1)*d3);
}
}
Eigen::SelfAdjointEigenSolver<Mat> es(n);
es.compute(X);
std::vector<Real> v(es.eigenvalues().data(), es.eigenvalues().data() + n);
if (!std::is_sorted(v.begin(), v.end())) {
std::cerr << "Expected invariant is broken.\n";
return 1;
}
assert(v.front() > 0);
Real cond = v.back()/v.front();
if (cond > 0.01/sqrt(std::numeric_limits<Real>::epsilon())) {
std::cerr << "Precision must be increased to get more samples; fails at n = " << n << "\n";
break;
}
of << n << ", " << cond << std::endl;
}
of.close();
}
```

(These number break every plotting program I've tried past $n = 75$ as that's where they start overflowing double.)
