A matrix of values is formed by successively applying a binary operation to the first 1200 real digits of two numbers expressed in a chosen base. That is, the

entry of the matrix is obtained by combining the

digit of the horizontal number with the

digit of the vertical number using the chosen binary operation. The matrix is displayed using either of

*Mathematica*'s built-in functions

ArrayPlot or

MatrixPlot. The frame ticks on the matrix plot are indices to the digits being viewed. A 2D slider controller lets you look at a portion of the large matrix in a window with size set by the "length" slider. The first and second rational numbers

* *and

in the top two rows of buttons are each set by sliders. The next numbers in the top two rows of buttons are

raised to the power of

raised to the power of

*.* These numbers will be irrational for most values of
