Magic Squares: A children’s puzzle meets quantum physics
Keywords:magic squares, quantum physics, mathematical physics
A magic square is a grid of numbers where every column and row sum up to the same number. We explain the “quantum jump” for magic squares, generalizing them to the mathematical framework of quantum physics to interpret quantum measurement. We investigate the properties of these newly established quantum magic squares and find that the quantum world is even more magic than we thought before!
