Magma, stands for Matrix Algebra on GPU and Multicore Architectures.

The MAGMA project aims to develop a dense linear algebra library similar to LAPACK but for heterogeneous/hybrid architectures, starting with current "Multicore+GPU" systems.

More information is available on magma web site:

How to use 

Magma library is built with Intel and GNU compilers and is used in pytorch, cdat and hotovod.

You can check the versions installed in Gadi with a module query:
