What are multigrades you may ask?

Due to limitations of this website on math notation and symbols, I would suggest you do a search for multigrade equations to get some idea what they're about. For now I'll say they're a part of math recreation.

I've been exploring their properties and keep on turning up new properties on these math objects, at least new to me. However I'm unaware of any properties that would make them useful outside of recreational use. It's my philosophy that if it exists, then it has potential practical uses and I have speculation in that regard concerning multigrades.

I was wondering if anyone else ever explored these wonderful math objects to see what they're all about?

As you said, isn't it a toy for Mathematicians? A toy explored by people just amazed by their properties? What I read is that they are fully used as... recreation maths (as you said).
That's already a lot , and they maybe have no utility (yet?). I didn't read anything about their applications. It's maybe hidden somewhere...

The Konigsberg bridges was once a puzzle until Euler turned it into a branch of math (topology which Henri Poincare expanded on). Magic squares were once a curiosity, my book Before Sudoku: The World of Magic Squares explains some uses for them (including, e.g., in music).

My philosophy is if it exists, it has a practical use (recently I found more ways of deriving multigrades from magic squares). Maybe it does have hidden uses.
