X–Y–Z matrix

In mathematics, an X–Y–Z matrix is a generalization of the concept of matrix to three dimensions.

An X–Y–Z matrix A will thus have components A_{i, j, k} where

1\le i\le M, \ 1\le j \le N, \  1\le k \le P

for some positive integers M, N, P.

Such matrices are helpful for example when considering grids in three dimensions, as in computer simulations of three-dimensional problems.
