How would you describe a Matrix in AS3?

Don't get me wrong, I know how to use a Matrix in AS3, for example at the createGradientBox() I have these Parameters:

matrix.createGradientBox(width, height, rotation, x, y);

But I am interested about how a Matrix works behind the scene? How would you describe a Matrix? THANKS!
