[FRIAM] looking for a word

Sorry for being vague.  By "matrixification", I made an attempt to suggest something like taking a single 1-dimensional thing (a tube) and splitting it into more than one thing, each of which is still 1-dimensional, but together approaching a higher dimension (2 or 3).

By "articulation", I intended something similar, taking something like a single tube and putting in *joints*, which might also provide branch points.  Two pipes connected by an angle will be more articulated than a single pipe (of the same length).  By extension, then, 3 pipes connected by a splitter will be more articulated than two pipes connected by an angle.
