Short summary
The structural description of the metamorphic mechanism is an important part of its structure, which is the basis of analysis and synthesis. Therefore, we introduce a comprehensive whole information matrix. The novel method to describe the topological structure of metamorphic mechanism in all the configurations was proposed in the paper. We have put painstaking effort into building the matrix.
