Definitions:

  • A situation or surrounding substance within which something else originates, develops, or is contained.
  • The womb.
  • None
  • The formative cells or tissue of a specialized structure such as a hair, nail, claw, or tooth.
  • None
  • None
  • The solid matter in which a fossil or crystal is embedded.
  • Groundmass.
  • A mold or die.
  • The principal metal in an alloy, as the iron in steel.
  • A binding substance, as cement in concrete.
  • None
  • A rectangular array of numeric or algebraic quantities subject to mathematical operations.
  • Something resembling such an array, as in the regular formation of elements into columns and rows.
  • The network of intersections between input and output leads in a computer, functioning as an encoder or a decoder.
  • None
  • A mold used in stereotyping and designed to receive positive impressions of type or illustrations from which metal plates can be cast.
  • A metal plate used for casting typefaces.
  • An electroplated impression of a phonograph record used to make duplicate records.
  • The womb; the uterus.
  • Hence That which incloses anything, or gives origin to anything, like a womb.
  • In <em>mathematics</em>, a rectangular array of quantities, usually square: so called because considered as a mold or set of compartments into which a certain number of quantities can be put, the leaving of one of the spaces unoccupied being in effect to put zero there. :
  • a matrix with <em>p</em> columns and <em>q</em> rows. The types of two matrices are said to be complementary when <em>p</em>—<em>p</em> = <em>q</em> + <internalXref urlencoded="q">q</internalXref>.
  • The womb.
  • That which gives form or origin to anything.
  • The cavity in which anything is formed, and which gives it shape; a die; a mold, as for the face of a type.
  • The earthy or stony substance in which metallic ores or crystallized minerals are found; the gangue.
  • The five simple colors, black, white, blue, red, and yellow, of which all the rest are composed.
  • The lifeless portion of tissue, either animal or vegetable, situated between the cells; the intercellular substance.
  • A rectangular arrangement of symbols in rows and columns. The symbols may express quantities or operations.
  • The <xref>womb</xref>.
  • The material or <xref>tissue</xref> in which more specialized structures are <xref>embedded</xref>.
  • An <xref>extracellular matrix</xref>, the material or tissue between the <xref>cells</xref> of animals or plants.
  • Part of the <xref>mitochondrion</xref>.
  • The medium in which <xref>bacteria</xref> are cultured.
  • A <xref>rectangular</xref> <xref>arrangement</xref> of <xref>numbers</xref> or <xref>terms</xref> having various uses such as <xref>transforming</xref> <xref>coordinates</xref> in <xref>geometry</xref>, solving systems of linear equations in <xref>linear algebra</xref> and <xref>representing</xref> <xref>graphs</xref> in <xref>graph theory</xref>.
  • A <xref>two-dimensional</xref> <xref>array</xref>.
  • A <xref>table</xref> of <xref>data</xref>.
  • A <xref>geological matrix</xref>, the outer material of a rock consisting of larger grains embedded in a material consisting of smaller ones.
  • The sediment surrounding and including the <xref>artifacts</xref>, features, and other materials at a <xref>site</xref>.
  • The environment from which a given sample is taken.
  • (mathematics) a rectangular array of quantities or expressions set out by rows and columns; treated as a single element and manipulated according to rules
  • mold used in the production of phonograph records, type, or other relief surface
  • the body substance in which tissue cells are embedded
  • an enclosure within which something originates or develops (from the Latin for womb)
  • the formative tissue at the base of a nail
  • (geology) amass of fine-grained rock in which fossils, crystals, or gems are embedded
