Problem 52. What is the next step in Conway's Life?

Given a matrix A that represents the state of Conway's game of Life at one instant (time t=n), return the matrix B that represents the state of the game at the next instant (time t=n+1).
Assume a toroidal game board, so the edges of the matrix wrap left to right and top to bottom.
Examples:
Input A = [ 1 1 0 0
0 1 0 0
1 1 0 0
0 0 0 0 ]
Output B = [ 1 1 0 0
0 0 1 0
1 1 0 0
0 0 0 0 ]
Input A = [ 0 1 1 0
1 1 1 0
0 0 1 0
0 0 0 0 ]
Output B = [ 1 0 1 1
1 0 0 0
0 0 1 1
0 1 1 0 ]
