Doesnt matrix have a specific definition with respect to printing presses?--71.111.229.19 19:24, 27 May 2010 (UTC)

It seems so. See Printmaking. Equinox 20:44, 27 May 2010 (UTC)

the Matrix[edit]

There's nothing here to point as to why this name was given to a 1999 film (it wasn't just plucked from nowhere) and used too in Doctor Who, and why such a structure is different to a vortex for instance.

Well, that would be Matrix in the first instance, and secondly we don't usually include words from 'fictional universes' because they're purely creations of their author rather than dictionary word. Appendix:Doctor Who would be valid. Mglovesfun (talk) 16:04, 5 October 2010 (UTC)
====[edit]

Strictly speaking, in Mathematics and Computers, Matrices are not limited to 2 dimensional (rectangular). They can have any dimentionality greater than zero. A one-dimensional matrix is called a vector. Three-dimensional matrices are very common. Four and five dimensions occur from time to time. And so on.
