Hi,
I would appreciate if you could help me with this problem.
I have a big matrix , where are submatrices of the same size.
I want to get a vector containing the smallest elements in each submatrices. I want to avoid for loop as it might slow down my whole program.
Thanks.

B=randi(9,10,2)
B = 10×2
3 7 6 6 6 3 3 5 3 9 3 5 1 5 5 9 8 2 7 8
[m,n] = size(B);
k = 5;
if mod(m,k)
error('m must divisible by k');
end
minsub = min(reshape(B,[m/k k n]),[],[1 3]).'
minsub = 5×1
3 3 3 1 2

Thank you very much.
This is exactly what I need.

cellfun(@min,B,'UniformOutput',false)

cellfun(@min,cellfun(@min,B,'UniformOutput',false),'UniformOutput',false)

My apologies for the confusion.
My algorithm leads to a big matrix, not the submatrices.
But I need to partition the big matrix into submatrices of the same size, and in each submatrix I want to find the minimum value.
I hope it is clear now.
Thank you.
