Re: Thread function over matrix elements?


Hi Ben,
you must understand level specifications, then all becomes clear:
n indicates level 1..n, {n} indicates level n
therefore, what you want is: Map[f, mat, {2}], if you say: Map[f, mat, 
2], f is appled to level 1 and 2, hardly what you want.

Apply does not work, because you can not replace the head of an atom. 
Neither does Thread because Thread has no level-control.
