This page is dedicated to the famous numerologist Dr. Irving Joshua Matrix , created by Martin Gardner in 1959.

The mysterious Dr.Matrix is an expert in finding hidden relations between numbers and letters. This modest cybernetic simulation will try for you to relate any two numbers of your choice in the range 1...999999. Or to relate a word (or a sentence) with a given number in the range 1...999999.

Dr. Matrix will use some simple mathematical rules and some elementary concepts (prime numbers, square numbers, etc. see below for an explanation).

 A number from 1 to 999999, or one or more words (STARTING POINT) A number from 1 to 999999 (ENDING POINT) Ask Dr. Matrix !

Prime numbers Numbers which have no other divisors apart from 1 and themselves. (For technical reasons mathematicians do not consider 1 as a prime number). The first prime numbers are: 2, 3, 5, 7, 11, 13, 17, 19, 23, 29, 31,... etc.

Triangular numbers The numbers obtained in this way: 1, 1+2, 1+2+3, 1+2+3+4, etc. The first triangular numbers are 1, 3, 6, 10, 15, etc. In general, the k-th triangular number is equal to k*(k+1)/2.

Square of a number The square of a number is obtained multiplying that number by itself. For example, the square of 7 is 7*7=49.

Cube of a number The cube of a number is obtained multiplying that number by itselft 3 times. For example, the cube of 4 is 4*4*4=64.

Divisors A number x is a divisor of another number y if x/y has remainder equal to 0. For example, 5 is a divisor of 15 but not of 16. Dr. Matrix sometimes uses the connection between a number and the sum of its proper divisors (that is all the divisors apart the number itself). For example, the divisors of 12 are 1, 2, 3, 4 and 6, thus 12 is connected with 1+2+3+4+6=16.
