Hello everyone, Mathematica has so many functions for accessing parts of arrays that I'm not sure which one I should be using to get a submatrix, for example, rows 3 to 7 and columns 11 to 14 of matrix X. Should I use Take? Take[X,{3,7},{11,14}] Is there a more compact way where I don't have to explicit refer to a function? Regards, Greg
