According to Lee Morgenstern's computation done in May , there is no 7x7 semi-magic square of cubes using any possible set of 49 cubes between 1 3 and 55 3. He extended his computation in August also impossible up to 57 3. Get this from a library! Magic squares and cubes.. [W S Andrews] -- Describes and analyzes various kinds of magic figures, explaining how to use algebraic methods to work out squares and how to apply the theory of reversions.   A magic square consists of a series of numbers so arranged in a square that the sum of each row and column and of both the corner diagonals shall be the same amount which may be termed the summation. In "Magic Squares and Cubes" W.S. Andrews writes "The study of magic squares probably dates back to prehistoric s: 5.

Magic squares are arrangements of numbers into squares, cubes, or hyper-cubes where the sum of each row and each column is identical. Additionally, the sum along the "principal diagonals" is also equal to the same number. The magic square below was known in antiquity in China, Greece, and Egypt.
