You meant to say "The Magic Square Blog."
It's interesting how the mind does that.
And I didn't notice it right away. The first time I read it I said "Square" in my head.
You were thinking table rather than square.
Is there a distinction between a numeric table and a magic square that is of any significance?
Is the distinction just the shape?
So when I was typing that in, I was totally thinking about how this numeric grid that I make shapes with is not a perfect square but a rectangle,
that's why I was calling it (my table) a table and not a square.
I have seen grids called Tables Vedic Table
It is also called a square Vedic Square
In ancient Indian mathematics, a Vedic square is a variation on a typical 9 × 9 multiplication table. The entry in each cell is the digital root
of the product of the column and row headings i.e. the remainder when the product of the row and column headings is divided by 9 (with remainder 0
represented by 9).
Maybe a table is more functional, while a square is more of how the numbers are organized.
Just read down the above Vedic Square link and found this.
There was some interesting stuff about Residue systems, and tons of links to other crazy math that I was never taught.
Circular buffer circular math memory addressing Congruence relation
Division Finite field
Modular multiplicative inverse
Pisano period (Fibonacci sequences modulo n)
Rational reconstruction (mathematics)
Number theory Reduced residue system
Not sure if the modular arithmetic explains the 37 and triple digit calculation.
