Talisman Square


An n×n array of the integers from 1 to n^2 such that the difference between any one integer and its neighbor (horizontally, vertically, or diagonally, without wrapping around) is greater than or equal to some value k is called a (n,k)-talisman square. The above illustrations show (4, 2)-, (4, 3)-, (5, 4)-, and (6, 8)-talisman squares.
