Consider the trivial list {7,7,7,7,7}, with A=8 and B=2. Then the sublists consisting of the first three elements, the first four elements, and the whole list itself all meet your length and threshold requirements, and all begin with the first element of the list. So which one do you want? Below, fnShort will generate the shortest such sublist, and fnLong and fnSplit will generate the longest such sublist. In[69]:= fnShort[x_List,thres_,len_]:=x/.{a___,(b__?(#<thres&))/;Length[{ b}]>len,c___}:>{b}; fnLong[x_List,thres_,len_]:= x/.{a___,(b__? (#<thres&))/;Length[{b}]>len,c___/;Length[{c}]==0||\ First[{c}]>=thres}:>{b}; fnSplit[x_List,thres_, len_]:=Cases[Split[x,#1<thres&<thres&],b_/;Length[ b]>len,{1},1]//Flatten; In[75]:= test1={3,3,3,3,3}; test2={6,5,1,2,2,3.1,3,3,3,3,3,6,2,2,2,2}; A=3.5; B=3; In[78]:= {fnShort[test1,A,B],fnLong[test1,A,B],fnSplit[test1,A,B]} Out[78]= {{3,3,3,3},{3,3,3,3,3},{3,3,3,3,3}} In[79]:= {fnShort[test2,A,B],fnLong[test2,A,B],fnSplit[test2,A,B]} Out[79]= {{1,2,2,3.1},{1,2,2,3.1,3,3,3,3,3},{1,2,2,3.1,3,3,3,3,3}} dkr
