Metric Tensor - A multilinear map from vectors to the set of real numbers that is used for calculating the magnitude of a vector of the inner product of two vectors is called the metric tensor and represented as g. The metric tensor is defined such that it is symmetric.

Certainly a glossary doesn't detract from a science text, but since it takes resources to put together and to print, I'm not sure if it always adds enough value to be worth the effort and cost.

A glossary, ideally with further outside references if you get stuck in the book.

Pmb, I think it is an excellent idea, I think that the science forum here could even add a new section under each category and provide a glossary of terms at the end of it.
