# MAGIC matrix function

## Description

MAGIC(*n*) creates a *n* × *n* matrix with as elements the integers 1 through n^{2}, with equal row and column sums.

The argument *n* must be larger than 2.

If *n*=1 then the function returns the scalar {1}; if *n*=2 then a nonmagic square matrix is returned.
