The 3th order Diamond Inlay of a 5th order Magic Square can be described by following linear equations:

a( 3) + a( 7) + a(11) = 39
a( 9) + a(13) + a(17) = 39
a(15) + a(19) + a(23) = 39

a( 3) + a( 9) + a(15) = 39
a( 7) + a(13) + a(19) = 39
a(11) + a(17) + a(23) = 39

a( 3) + a(13) + a(23) = 39
a(11) + a(13) + a(15) = 39

which can be added to the equations describing a Magic Square of the fifth order (Section 3.2), and result in following linear equations:

a(21) =       s1 - a(22) - a(23) - a(24) - a(25)
a(17) = 0.8 * s1 - a(19) - 2 * a(23)
a(16) = 0.2 * s1 - a(18) - a(20) + 2 * a(23)
a(15) = 0.6 * s1 - a(19) - a(23)
a(13) = 0.2 * s1
a(12) = 0.4 * s1 - a(14)
a(11) = 0.4 * s1 - a(15)
a(10) =     - s1 + a(19) - a(20) + 2 * a(21) + a(22) + 2 * a(23) + a(24)
a( 9) = 0.4 * s1 - a(17)
a( 8) = 0.4 * s1 - a(18)
a( 7) = 0.4 * s1 - a(19)
a( 6) = 0.6 * s1 - a(10) + a(18) - 2 * a(23)
a( 5) = 0.4 * s1 - a(21)
a( 4) = 1.4 * s1 - a(14) - 2 * a(19) - 2 * a(23) - a(24)
a( 3) = 0.4 * s1 - a(23)
a( 2) = 0.8 * s1 - a(4) - a(22) - a(24)
a( 1) = 0.4 * s1 - a(25)

a(16) = -0.6 * s1 - a(19) + a(20) + a(22) + a(24) + 2 * a(25)
a(15) =  0.6 * s1 - a(19) - a(23)
a(14) =        s1 - 2 * a(19) + a(22) - 2 * a(23) - a(24)
a(13) =  0.2 * s1
a(12) =  0.4 * s1 - a(14)
a(11) =  0.4 * s1 - a(15)
a(10) =  0.4 * s1 - a(16)

a(18) = -0.2 * s1 + 2 * a(23)
a(17) =  0.8 * s1 - a(19) - 2 * a(23)
a(16) =  0.4 * s1 - a(20)
a(15) =  0.6 * s1 - a(19) - a(23)
a(14) =        s1 - 2 * a(19) - 2 * a(23)

5.6.5 Square and Diamond Inlay

When the equations describing the 3th order Square Inlay are added to the equations describing an Magic Square of the fifth order with Diamond Inlay (Section 5.6.1), following set of linear equations will result:

a(10) =  0.4 * s1 - a(20)
a( 9) = -0.6 * s1 + 2 * a(23) + 2 * a(25)
a( 8) =  0.4 * s1 - a(18)
a( 7) =  0.6 * s1 - 2 * a(25)
a( 6) =  0.2 * s1 + a(18) + a(20) - 2 * a(23)
a( 5) = -0.2 * s1 + a(23) + a(25)
a( 4) =  1.8 * s1 - a(14) - 2 * a(23) - a(24) - 4 * a(25)
a( 3) =  0.4 * s1 - a(23)
a( 2) = -1.4 * s1 + a(14) + 2 * a(23) + a(24) + 4 * a(25)
a( 1) =  0.4 * s1 - a(25)

With the option 'Check Diamond Inlay' enabled, 1440 Magic Squares with Square and Diamond Inlay could be produced within 85 seconds with procedure MgcSqr5g4, of which the first 360 are shown in Attachment 5.6.5.
