Doesnt matrix have a specific definition with respect to printing presses?--126.96.36.199 19:24, 27 May 2010 (UTC)
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.

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.
