Magic squares are one of the extra renowned mathematical recreations. over the past 50 years, many generalizations of “magic” rules were utilized to graphs. lately there was a resurgence of curiosity in “magic labelings” as a result of a couple of effects that experience purposes to the matter of decomposing graphs into timber.

Key good points of this moment variation include:

·         a brand new bankruptcy on magic labeling of directed graphs

·         purposes of theorems from graph thought and engaging counting arguments

·         new learn difficulties and workouts masking a number of difficulties

·         an absolutely up-to-date bibliography and index

This concise, self-contained exposition is exclusive in its specialise in the speculation of magic graphs/labelings. it will possibly function a graduate or complicated undergraduate textual content for classes in arithmetic or computing device technology, and as reference for the researcher.

Their origins are misplaced in antiquity. A classical reference is [2], whereas one of many higher contemporary books is [12]. A magic sq. of aspect n is an n× n array whose entries are an association of the integers {1, 2, . . . , n2 }, within which all components in any row, any column, or both the most diagonal or major back-diagonal, upload to a similar sum.
