(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

For indices running from 0-3:

[tex]R_{iklm} = -R_{kilm} = -R_{ikml}[/tex]

With the above conditions how do I know the number of independent component is reduced from 4^4 = 256 to 36.

No idea how to figure this out.
