In[6]:= << LinearAlgebra`MatrixManipulation`

In[7]:= ?BlockMatrix
BlockMatrix[block] returns a matrix composed of a matrix
of matrices.

In[8]:= a={{a11,a12,a13},{a21,a22,a23},{a31,a32,a33}};
In[9]:= b={{b11,b12,b13},{b21,b22,b23},{b31,b32,b33}};
In[10]:= c={{c11,c12,c13},{c21,c22,c23},{c31,c32,c33}};
In[11]:= d={{d11,d12,d13},{d21,d22,d23},{d31,d32,d33}};

In[12]:= BlockMatrix[{{a, b}, {c, d}}]

Out[12]=
{{a11, a12, a13, b11, b12, b13},

{a21, a22, a23, b21, b22, b23},

{a31, a32, a33, b31, b32, b33},

{c11, c12, c13, d11, d12, d13},

{c21, c22, c23, d21, d22, d23},

{c31, c32, c33, d31, d32, d33}}
