The Zen of Magic Squares, Circles, and Stars: An Exhibition of Surprising Structures Across Dimensions - Pickover, Clifford A, Ph.D.

In this fascinating account, Pickover explains why Chinese emperors, Babylonian astrologer-priests, prehistoric cave people in France, and ancient Mayans of the Yucatan were convinced that magic squares--arrays filled with numbers or letters in certain arrangements--held the secret of the universe. Line illustrations.
