On a method to construct magic rectangles of even order

by J. P. De Los Reyes, Ashish Das, Chand K. Midha and P. Vellaisamy

Magic rectangles are well-known for its very interesting and entertaining combinatorics. In a magic rectangle, the integers 1 to $mn$ are arranged in an array of $m$ rows and $n$ columns so that each row adds to the same total $M$ and each column to the same total $N$. In the present paper we provide a simple and systematic method for constructing any even by even magic rectangle.
