Magic Cubes - Order 13

Golunski Pantriagonal

Classed as pantriagonal, but contains 29 pandiag and 4 simple

Laio Perfect cube

It is perfect and so contains 9m pandiagonal magic squares.

Broken oblique plane

An example of a broken oblique plane forming a magic square.

Soni Order 14 Simple

Top plane only of a simple, not associated magic cube.

Golunski Pantriagonal

I received this cube via email from Bogdan Golunski of Germany on November 26, 2003. It is not associated, and must be classed as a pantriagonal magic cube even though it contains many magic squares.
All 13 of the horizontal planes and all 13 of the planes parallel to the front of the cube are pandiagonal magic squares. All broken diagonals and 12 of the 13 main diagonals in 1 direction of the vertical planes parallel to the sides of the cube sum incorrectly. Because of this, only 1 of these 13 planes is a simple magic square. 3 of the 6 oblique planes are simple magic squares and 3 are pandiagonal magic squares.
Total for the cube, 4 simple magic squares and 29 pandiagonal magic squares.

All pantriagonals in this cube sum correctly. So, because all 3m orthogonal planes in this cube are not magic squares (and the same type), this cube must be classed only as pantriagonal magic! A most unusual cube!

Laio Nasik perfect cube

This cube is not associated. It is perfect and so contains 9m pandiagonal magic squares. That is 3 * 13 = 39 orthogonal order 13 pandiagonal magic squares, 6 oblique, and 6m-6 broken oblique order 13 pandiagonal magic squares.
The fact that there are 6m-6 broken oblique pandiagonal magic squares in a perfect cube was first mentioned by Rosser and Walker in 1938 [1]. It was mentioned again in Liao's paper [2].

This cube contains   507 1-agonals (rows, columns and pillars) [3]
                            1014 pan-2-agonals (pan-diagonals)
                              676 pan-3-agonals (pan-triagonals)
The discrepancy between the above agonals (number lines) is due to the fact that the same line of numbers appear in several different magic squares.

Following is a listing of this cube. Then I show an example broken oblique plane.

Broken oblique plane

This is one of the 6m-6 broken oblique planes from the above cube. All are pandiagonal magic squares. this is the case for all nasik perfect magic cubes! [1][2]

[1] B. Rosser and R. J. Walker, Magic Squares: Published papers and Supplement, 1939, a bound volume at Cornell University, catalogued as QA 165 R82+pt.1-4. All papers are very technical. There are NO diagrams. The bound book contains:

  • On the Transformation Group for Diabolic Magic Squares of Order Four, Reprinted from Bulletin of the American Mathematical Society, June 1938.
  • The Algebraic Theory of Diabolic Magic Squares, Reprinted from Duke Mathematical Journal Vol. 5, No. 4, Dec. 1939, pp 705-728.
    Section 6 (pp 727-728) has been crossed out.
  • A continuation of The Algebraic Theory of Diabolic Magic Squares on typewritten pages numbered 729 – 753. (This starts with a new section 6, renamed from ‘conclusion’ to ‘Latin Squares’). Pages 736 to 753 is about diabolic (perfect) magic cubes and points out there are 3m diabolic magic squares parallel to the faces of the cubes and 6m diabolic magic squares parallel to six diagonal planes.

Soni Order 14 Simple

This is a simple magic cube and is not associated. Only rows, columns pillars and the 4 main triagonals sum correctly to 19215.
This cube contains no magic squares. I received it from Abinhav Soni as an email attachment on Nov. 29, 2003

I will show the top horizontal plane only.
