# Is there a easy way to call on the minor of a matrix?

Posted on 2010-11-28

Given an nxn matrix, I want to call on the n/3Xn/3 (assume n divisible by 3) matrix appearing in the center so that I can change its elements to zeros. For example, if I had a 6x6 matrix A, I would want to change the entries A(15), A(16), A(21), A(22) to zeros.

A is your matrix.

k=(n-n/3)/2+1;
A(k:(n-k+1),k:(n-k+1))=0;
