Java Program for Maximum sum rectangle in a 2D matrix | DP-27
• Last Updated : 12 Dec, 2018

Given a 2D array, find the maximum sum subarray in it. For example, in the following 2D array, the maximum sum subarray is highlighted with blue rectangle and sum of this subarray is 29. This problem is mainly an extension of Largest Sum Contiguous Subarray for 1D array.

Output:
```MaxSum: 29, range: [(1, 1)(3, 3)]
```
