# OF matrix

(Redirected from Matrix of optimum factors)

**Matrix of O-Factors** (or OF matrix) is a matrix of optimum factors in SuperMemo (starting with version 5 in 1989). The matrix is indexed by item difficulty (expressed as E-factor or A-factor), and by stability (expressed as repetition number or repetition number category).

In Algorithm SM-17, the role of the 2-dimensional OF matrix is played by the 3-dimensional stability increase matrix (*SInc[]*) with an added dimension of retrievability.
