Subsets of bimagic 8x8-squares

Sets with essentially different bimagic squares of order 8

Each ess. diff. SQ can be transformed into 192 unique SQ (including the SQ itself) by magic transformations.
Each SQ is written in standard position for ess. diff. magic 8x8-squares.

There are no further complementary invariant SQ.
Total amount: 841 + 3567 + 2424 = 6832

Sets with unique bimagic squares of order 8

Each SQ is written in standard position for unique magic 8x8-squares.
Certain magic properties of special magic squares are not invariant with respect to magic transformations.
For example magic diagonals that are not main diagonals. Therefore sets with unique SQ are necessary.
