Folks,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I am having difficulty understanding how this global matrix is assembled with the naming convention used as shown in attached.

The numbers in the corners such as 1(1,2) etc in figure 4.6.3 (b) denote the global and element numbers respectively.

Can anyone shed light on how this assembled...? Thanks
