COMMENTS

A magic square is associative if the sum of any two elements symmetric about its center is the same. A magic square is pandiagonal if the sum of the numbers in any broken diagonal equals the magic constant. A magic square is ultramagic if it is associative and pandiagonal.

Ultramagic squares exist for orders n>=5.

The following bounds for the next terms are known: 12249<=a(9)<=13059, 4200<=a(10)<=46150, a(11)>=26521, a(12)>=8820, a(13)>=49439, a(14)>=16170, a(15)>=74595, a(16)>=21840.
