Hi
What does the following notation mean
u(:,1)
Does it covert a row vector to a column vector?
Thanks

It gives you the first column of the array u.
If u is a row vector, that is the 1st element.
if u is a column vector, that is the entire vector.
If you want to transform a row vector into a column, see u', transpose(u), or u(:).
