Magic Squares and Science

  1. Mar 15, 2006 #1

    I'm curious if "magic squares" have been found to be useful in mathematical or scientific endeavors apart from an "oddity" or "game"

    Hello there!
    I'm from Lahore - Pakistan. I've recently discovered a unique relationship between simple Arithmetic Sequence and Magic Squares & Cubes. I've also developed 3D models of that, too.
    Magic Sqaures are basically a simple 2 Dimensional Arithmetic Sequence.
    Now look at this smallest pattern of 3x3.

    6 7 2
    1 5 9
    8 3 4
    The summation of any horizontal, vertical line or either of the two main diagonals is 15.

    Sn= -------------------
    Total no. of squares
    Contact me if you like on me email address & I'll try to elobarate on this.

    You formula is meaningless if you don't tell us what n, a, and d are!
