Just for fun, I tried doing the inverse of: hb = Table[x/(i + j), {i, 60}, {j, 60}]; Inverse[hb] On a MacBook with WinXP, 32-bit Mathematica v6, it crashed Mathematica in an odd way after about 3 minutes. (I got a dialog box with a C program error - never seen that before). Under OSX, 64-bit Mathematica v6, it seems to run fine - but didn't finish after 30 minutes, so I stopped the program. I was using 2GB, dual-core Intel. Hope this helps a bit.
