About this book

The science of magic squares witnessed an important development in the Islamic world during the Middle Ages, with a great variety of construction methods being created and ameliorated. The initial step was the translation, in the ninth century, of an anonymous Greek text containing the description of certain highly developed arrangements, no doubt the culmination of ancient research on magic squares.

Reviews

“This is certainly a definitive comprehensive treatise on the history of magic squares from their known beginnings to 1600. There is a wealth of material, containing methods of construction as well as individual magic squares, including bordered and pandiagonal magic squares, that is astonishing.” (Victor V. Pambuccian, zbMATH 1422.01002, 2019)
