Equations can take many forms; the fact that they both use tensors is no spooky coincidence.

Metric tensors are used to define the angle between and length of tangent vectors (somewhat analogous to the dot product of vectors in Euclidean space)
Bad Language: Metric vs Metric Tensor vs Matrix Form vs Line Element

Yes, abstract index notation for tensors uses indices to indicate the type of tensor, rather than to indicate components in a particular basis.

For those familiar with tensors, it should be clear that the metric tensor is actually a tensor field (a tensor is assigned to each point of our mathematical space).

Oh, by the way, a spinoff of the tensors project is going to be — finally — a nice, clean, consistent handling of vector analysis.

Manipulating tensors has been a classic symbolic computation activity for more than 40 years.

Well, the exciting thing we have coming in the pipeline is fully integrated tensors.

We joked over coffee about metric tensors, vector valued functions, and things that I can't even pronounce or remember how to define.

Practitioners are dealing with everlarger numbers of images (hundreds or thousands rather than dozens) and more complex, higherdimensional information (vectors or tensors rather than scalar values, arranged in image volumes directly corresponding to the anatomy rather than flat images).

It can be translated as probability/possibility tensors within spacetime.
