COMMENTS

A magic square of order n = 2k is most-perfect if the following two conditions hold: (i) every 2 X 2 subsquare (including wrap-around) sums to 2T; and (ii) any pair of elements at distance k along a diagonal or a skew diagonal sums to T, where T = S/k, S is the magic constant.

All most-perfect magic squares are pandiagonal.

All pandiagonal magic squares of order 4 are most-perfect.

The magic constants of most-perfect magic squares of order 4 composed of distinct primes see A191533.

The minimal magic constant of most-perfect magic square of order 6 composed of distinct primes corresponds to a(1) = 29790, see A258082.

The seven terms shown have been verified by exhaustive search. - Natalia Makarova, Jun 09 2016
