abstract = {Amagic squareis a square matrix drawn as a checkerboard filled with numbers or letters in particular arrangements. Mathematicians are most interested inarithmeticsquares consisting ofN² boxes, calledcells, filled with integers that are all different. Such an array of numbers is called a magic square if the sums of the numbers in the horizontal rows, vertical columns, and main diagonals are all equal. If the integers in a magic square are the consecutive numbers from 1 toN², the square is said to be of theNth order, and themagic number, or sum of each},
