A companion site to the book, which gives a method of construction and enumeration of all pandiagonal magic squares of a class known as Mostperfect. Pandiagonal magic squares have the integers in all rows, all columns, and all diagonals (including the broken diagonals) adding to the same sum. Mostperfect 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.
