This article is meant as an encomium of the life-span endeavor of Jacques Raynal to relate nuclear scattering density matrices with numerical methods. The mathematical investigations he made involved intricate hypergeometric coupling algebras and transformations. He was among the first to appreciate the general importance of these studies. His efforts over 60 years are most praiseworthy and, for them, Jacques has gained much respect.
