The Magic Encyclopedia ™

Presented here are a series of articles which intents to define terms in most precise fashion

Articles will adhere to most precise format, listing definitions conclusions and formulae
Articles might provide samples and links towards pages elsewhere for further reading

For General software see item XmlHypercubes (x-section)
The proposed xml-based format allows for structured description of hypercube data
A general reader is provided which implements construction methods known to me
The program and format will be augmented as time permits.

Qualification notice
{magic} = {1-agonal n-agonal}
{perfect} = {pan r-agonal for r = 1 .. n}

In order to avoid future disussion about the meaning of certain qualifiers future enhanchements of articles might hold the above or merely lines like:
Qualification notice: {perfect} = {pan r-agonal for r = 1..n}
this statement takes precedence over the default defined in the linked onto article. Thus articles (not written by this author) might define certain qualifiers having a different meaning, then the meaning outlined in the article.
Qualification strings displayed in the above manner will adhere to this strict principles.

The reader is invited to contribute to this effort, the article format will have provisions for authorisation. Non-authorised articles can be considered to be written by me (Aale de Winkel).

The mathematical inclined reader might spot flaws in the notational efforts made, this author intents to be most precise in that respect. A spotted flaw might be on a forgotten spot or I simply don"t know how to correct the flaw. In case I appreciate a note, preferably with a suggestion to correct the mishap. Same thing with respect to counting arguments, done there where I was able to state them based upon the given steps might be flawed.

The encyclopedia database contains various sets of data, obtained by this author or mentioned others such as [John R Hendricks] (order 3 tesseract data), <Harvey Heinz> (order 4 square data), [M Suzuki] (order 5 panmagic squares), <George Chen> (4-pan bi panmagic squares order 8). data was obtained from them, sometimes reordered or used as a starting point for further investigation of the matter. The data is provided as is and can be used as a starting place for further investigation.
In case you know or have data, useable in the database. I and others (I"m sure) would appreciate this data put into the database format. In case I appreciate a file in the database format, or data to be reformatted, or URL"s to be linked onto (in which case you are free in its format)
Just in case in database as well as articles I missed some acknowledgement, referal and / or URL, please feel free to let me know.

The author does not intend to find all possible squares with methods listed in articles, just in the prime order panmagic investigation according to the counting argument I stumbled upon all possible panmagic squares, recently the "irregular panmagic squares" fall outside of this discussion and probably will give some currently unknown factor to the amount of panmagic squares (see article). The other articles leave more room for speculation so given methods will only provide some or perhaps most of the possible squares. Future uploads might provide notational effort to pinpoint obtainable squares precisely, some issues remain with respect to that.

The author (Aale de Winkel) finds it necessairy to work with most precise definitions. He also finds in the here presented format an excelent way to reformat his own links page. The reader who finds an item ilrepresented or finds some (interesting) links missing is herewith urged to send me either the correct definition, a corrected article (or brand new article), or the missing relevant URL (in such cases please state the article where this URL ought to be put)

The "investigative article note" is raised on articles which states results obtained by recent investigation, these articles will be updated as soon as more insight is obtained. The reader is invited to take part in this investigation.
The interested reader of these articles might send me his email adress if he is interested in updates onto the encyclopedia. In case I"ll add the readers adress to my mailing list. Those who partake in the investigation of a certain article might notice me that only that article interests him.

The "adworks encyclopedia notational marker" provides a three way link, the adworks homepage the encyclopedia itself and to the article you want the marker to point to. Besides that it contains a notational entry point to convert private notation into general notation. Both the notation entry point, and the specific article can be changed at the users leasure, the other entries should remain the same to serve it"s intended purpose.
