the classical nutation-precession-bias matrix

must have its first two
dimensions equal to 3. `rnpb`

has the same dimensions as
`s`

except that it lacks those first two dimensions
equal to 3.
`rnpb`

The equation of the origins is the distance between the true equinox and the celestial intermediate origin, or, equivalently, between the Earth rotation angle and Greenwich apparent sidereal time. It is equal to the precession in right ascension since J2000.0 plus the equation of the equinoxes including the small correction terms.
