```Hello Paolo,

<< LinearAlgebra`MatrixManipulation`

m01 = {{a, b}, {c, d}, {e, f}};
MatrixForm[m01]
m02 = TakeRows[m01, -2]
m03 = TakeRows[m01, 2]
m02 - m03
MatrixForm[%] ?

If I have a matrix

a={x[[1,1]],x[[1,2]],...,x[[1,n]]}
{x[[2,1]],x[[2,2]],...,x[[2,n]]}
.
.
.
{x[[m,1]],x[[m,2]],...,x[[m,n]]}

how can I compute the difference between any element and the previous for
each column :

aa={x[[2,1]]-x[[1,1]], x[[2,2]]-x[[1,2]],...,x[[2,n]]-x[[1,n]]}
{x[[3,1]]-x[[2,1]], x[[3,2]]-x[[2,2]],...,x[[3,n]]-x[[2,n]]}
.
.
.
{x[[m,1]]-x[[m-1,1]],x[[m,2]]-x[[m-1,2]],...,x[[m,n]]-x[[m-1,n]]}

I built this code but it does not work

r=Array[0,{m,n}]
For[j=1,j=n,j++
r[[i,j]]=Table[a[[i+1,j]]-a[[i,j]],{i,1,m-1,1}]]

thanks

Paolo
