If by a *column vector* you mean a matrix of dimension {n^2, 1}, then both List /@ Flatten[mat] and List /@ Join @@ mat will do it, where mat is the {n, n} matrix. Omit "List /@" to get a simple vector. See <http://groups.google.com/group/comp.soft-sys.math.mathematica/browse_thread/thread/24fa2f19317734fa/69770c22c257ca29#69770c22c257ca29> on matrices vs vectors in Mathematica. -- Szabolcs
