Hi, Julien, I guess some elegant way exists, but my very first idea is rather straightforward. Assume we have a matrix: mat1 = Table[{i*j}, {i, 1, 3}, {j, 1, 3}] is it the type you have in mind? Then try to rewrite it like this: mat2 = Table[mat1[[i, j, 1]], {i, 1, 3}, {j, 1, 3}] Have fun, Alexei Hello everyone, For some reasons, I have a matrix where each element is itself another matrix of size one. How can I transform that in a normal matrix where each element is just the value ? I am very confused with mathematica syntax. thanks, Julien -- Alexei Boulbitch, Dr., habil.
