Author:Kathleen Ollerenshaw and David Brée
Description: A companion site to the book, which gives a method of construction and enumeration of all pandiagonal magic squares of a class known as Most-perfect. Pandiagonal magic squares have the integers in all rows, all columns, and all diagonals (including the broken diagonals) adding to the same sum. Most-perfect squares, in addition to being pandiagonal, have two further properties: Integers occur in complementary pairs along the diagonals; and integers in any 2x2 block add to the same sum.
