Matrix(ed) recordings

Though I've been trading a good while, I only fairly recently became cognizant of "matrix" recordings.

My two questions are - are matrix recordings essentially 2 or more recordings of the same event, combined into a single stream?

And second question, what is the value of matrix recordings? My assumption/guess is that the point is to use each recording to enhance the strong points of the recording so as to create a more full sound (appropriate crowd noise, bass but not too much, drums but not too much, etc) than either recording might represent standing alone - is this correct? Is this the spirit behind matrix recordings, and are there other reasons beyond this one for creating them?
