Heyy!(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Please check the attachment and explain why are they arranged (the matrix entries) the way they are?

I mean, what is the rule for building up a matrix?

In other words, why did not we start with <-1/2, -1/2 l S^2 l -1/2, -1/2 > and placed it as being the first entry?

Thanks.
