I want to put a small matrix (p*q) called B into a bigger matrix (m*n) called A. How can I do it. Matrix B should be put on the left-right corner of matrix A.

Accepted answer

I don't know what "left-right corner" means, but in general you can do this as:

A = magic(7); B = magic(3);

A(2:4,3:5) = B;
