We will examine the way this particular 6 6 magic square was generated. The are other methods, but as we will see they are not as straightforward as the methods we showed for odd ordered magic squares and doubly-even ordered magic squares.

However. A magic square of order n is an arrangement of n^2 numbers, usually distinct integers, in a square, such that the n numbers in all rows, all columns, and both diagonals sum to the same constant. A magic square contains the integers from 1 to n^2.

The constant sum in every row, column and diagonal is called the magic constant or magic sum, M.4/5. Magic square of order 2 cannot be constructed. Normal magic squares of all sizes can be constructed except 2×2 (that is, where order n = 2). Number of magic squares of a given order.

Excluding rotations and reflections, there is exactly one 3×3 magic square, exactly 4×4 magic squares, and exactly5×5 magic squares. The set of all magic squares of order may be88 represented by MS().

The set of all magic squares of order whose magic constant is will be denoted MS() (19, p. An arbitrary row of a magic square will be denoted by with a subscript, such as.

Similarly,VV3File Size: KB. A magic square is an NxN square matrix whose numbers consist of consecutive numbers arranged so that the sum of each row and column, and both diagonals are equal to the same sum (which is called the magic number or magic constant).

A magic square of singly even order has a size that is a multiple of 4, plus 2 (e.g. 6, 10, 14). This means that the subsquares have an odd size, which plays a. Singly even order Magic Squares are those which are divisible by 2 but not by 4. The earliest square would be 6x6 order square, then we have 10x10, 14x14, 18x18 etc.

Now generate the magic square of order \$2m+1\$ using the Siamese method centered on the array of letters (starting in the center square of the top row), but fill each set of four squares surrounding a letter sequentially, according to the order prescribed by the letter.

That order is illustrated on the left side of the figure below, and the. Magic squares of odd order You are encouraged to solve this task according to the task description, using any language you may know.

A magic square is an NxN square matrix whose numbers (usually integers) consist of consecutive numbers arranged so that the sum of each row and column, and both long (main) diagonals are equal to the same sum. This illustrated treatise on Magic Squares covers the history of Magic Squares, information about the general classes of Magic Squares, various formulae for creating Magic Squares, detailed analyses of 3 x 3, 4 x 4 and 5 x 5 Magic Squares, variations on Magic Squares, Magic Square routines, puzzles and presentations, including 'one novel contribution by the author which combines /5(4).

An enumeration of magic squares of order 5 is possible with existing personal computers, if you use a compiled language and a reduced program. In SeptemberI drove such an enumeration in 6 hours and half with a reduced program (group G of order 32 and permutation "complement to 26") on a K6 of AMD, running at MHz, under Turbo Pascal.

Each solution has a complement, just like magic squares. Super-Magic Stars: Six is the only order that can have the sum of peaks also magic.

Cell pairs equaling 6 pairs of cells define a way to put the 80 solutions into three groups. Definitions: Review magic star definitions and. This paper presents improved even order magic square construction algorithms, including both single even order magic square and double even order magic square construction algorithms.

Further, in order to show how the algorithms work, two specific magic squares are constructed. Moreover, the analysis of the algorithms is : Zhenhua Duan, Jin Liu, Jie Li, Cong Tian.

A magic square with magic total Magic squares with a given total Many magicians, including the authors of this paper, create magic squares as parts of their shows. Typically, an audience member is asked for a number (say between 30 and ) and the magician quickly creates a magic square and shows off the many ways that their total is Size: KB.

Magic Squares of Order 4n Here we will generalize the method used to generate fourth-order magic squares to generate squares of order 4n. That is, squares for which the number of cells on a side is a multiple of 4. We can use almost the same process as we used to generate a fourth-order magic square to create any 4n 4n magic square.

Magic squares A magic square of order n is an arrangement of the integers from 1 to n 2 in an n × n matrix, with each number occurring exactly once, so that each row, each column, and each main diagonal has the same sum.

Prove that if a magic square of order n exists, the sum in question must be equal to n(n 2 + 1)/ b. This is a book on general recreational mathematics, but it does include a section on Magic Squares. The book is quite detailed in nature, but is oriented towards a mathematical analysis of its contents rather than any magical presentations.

A method for constructing magic squares of odd order was published by the French diplomat de la Loubère in his book A new historical relation of the kingdom of Siam (Du Royaume de Siam, ), under the chapter entitled The problem of the magical square according to the Indians.

An Order-9 pandiagonal Magic Square. The general belief among magic square enthusiasts has been that it is impossible to construct a pandiagonal order-9 magic square. However, in Mr.

Gakuho Abe discovered a whole series of such squares. See Dr. Alan Grogono's site at Magic Squares by "Grog" for more information.

For order 4, there are 3 orthogonal squares, which are squares are obtained with the 3 first basis; the 3 last basis give the same squares (see Appendix 3, § 5).

As a matter of fact, if you have one magic square which is solution. Many order-4 and higher antimagic squares, with all sums in consecutive order, were found by Lindon.

Linder's wonderful way with squares yields dozens of variations that even the newest quilter can make to create hundreds of beautiful blocks. See how one little square can be made into 12 different units that are mixed and matched to create Ni.

Doubly even order Squares. Doubly even Magic Squares: We have already formed the 8x8 square. The method used there can be always applied to form squares of ‘n’th order where ‘n’ is a multiple of 4.

This common value is called the “magic sum.” The order of a magic square is simply the number of rows (and columns) in the square. The magic square of Figure 10 is an order 3 magic square. By using the formula for the sum of the first n terms of an arithmetic sequence, it can be shown that if a magic square of order n has entries then theFile Size: KB.

Note: For singly-even n, it generate weak magic squares only. Singly-even magic squares Construction of magic square using basic Latin square is expressed in the following steps: Step First arrange the consecutive numbers 1 to n2 or () in basic Latin square format.

Find T.In the article Magic Squares we saw how to construct at least one magic square of any order. We can use some properties of magic squares to transform our manufactured square into many different magic squares. Some of the properties of magic squares are: A magic square will remain magic if any number is added to every number of a magic square.A magic square is an n × n array of numbers whose rows, columns, and the two diagonals sum to μ.A regular magic square satisfies the condition that the entries symmetrically placed with respect to the center sum to 2 μ circulant matrices we describe a construction of regular classical magic squares that are nonsingular for all odd by: 2.
