Twelve note rows
Another page with links to information about serial music...
Prime row: a list of all notes in the twelve note tempered scale (the original ordering)
transformations can be combined...
all notes in the piece should be derived from the prime row, of course rules are made to be broken and this is by no means absolute!
a matrix of transformations can be created with rows derived from the prime row. For example, here's an online calculator that returns the matrix (no, not that matrix!) given the prime row. Or this more detailed description, in particular a description of the algorithm that creates the matrix.
