I have a population generated by pop=[pop;x;y;z;cst,fr]; where first 4 rows are x, second 3 rows are y and third 8 rows are z. cst is sum of column 1 and fr is calculated failure rate of column 2.

How can I sort the specific (16,32,48) rows followed by unchanged (1:15,17:31,33:47)? for example:

you can do it as follow:
For example you have your data in variable A then use following line to do it:
A(16:16:end, :) = sortrows(A(16:16:end, :), 1);
I hope it helps. Good luck!
