Problem Description

Given a 2D binary matrix A of size ` N x M ` find the area of maximum size square sub-matrix with all 1's.

Problem Constraints

1 <= N, M <= 103

A[i][j] = 1 or A[i][j] = 0

Input Format

First argument is an 2D matrix A of size `N x M`.

Output Format

Output the area of maximum size square sub-matrix in A with all 1's.

Example Input

Input 1:

``` A = [
[0, 1, 1, 0, 1],
[1, 1, 0, 1, 0],
[0, 1, 1, 1, 0],
[1, 1, 1, 1, 0],
[1, 1, 1, 1, 1],
[0, 0, 0, 0, 0]
]
```

Input 2:

``` A = [
[1, 1],
[1, 1]
]
```

Example Output

Output 1:

``` 9
```

Output 2:

``` 4
```

Example Explanation

Explanation 1:

```  Consider the below binary matrix. The area of the square is 3 * 3 = 9
```

Explanation 2:

``` The given matrix is the largest size square possible so area will be 2 * 2 = 4
```
