See in which order the cells were filled.
Transformations of order-6 magic squares (word document)|
This file is in German Language (sorry), it shows how transformations can be used in order to reduce the number of squares that have to be calculated. Only the first parts were used in the program.
All data of the 100,000 runs (zipped txt)|
The first column contains the estimates for A, the second for B. Parts of this file may be imported to excel.
Each number must be multiplied by the transformation factor 24 and by the statistical factor 1,057,496,832,000.
Some remarks about the program (html)|
I try to explain some details of the program.
