Magic Graph


A Labeled Graph with $e$ Edges labeled with distinct elements $\{1, 2, \ldots, e\}$ so that the sum of the Edge labels at each Vertex is the same. Another type of magic graph, such as the Pentagram shown above, has labeled Vertices which give the same sum along every straight line segment (Madachy 1979).
