Magic Squares

A magic square is a square array of integers in which the columns, rows, and diagonals have the same sum, called the magic number. Magic squares can be traced through history and are believed to have been discovered in ancient China. This paper covers selected history, presents formulas related to the construction of magic squares, as well as proofs of theorems. Additionally, partial results of unsolved problems will be discussed.
