That function sounds like its describing how to subtract the vector from the matrix:

g[1, 1] = f[1, 1] - e[1] - e[1]

g[2, 3] = f[2, 3] - e[2] - e[3]

(which implies that f is square)

So maybe something like:

g <- f - outer(e, e, "-")

But a link to the paper and an example would be very helpful!
