Thus the bimetrically spherically symmetric covariant tensor [A.
In particular, we are interesting in the sub-module consisting of the covariant tensor fields of degree 2.
Furthermore, we need an anti-symmetric, covariant tensor which is non-degenerate.
This metric observable tensor, in real observations where the observer accompanies his references, is the same that the analogous built general covariant tensor [h.
Besides, there is an obstacle related to definition of observable components of covariant tensors (in which the indices are subscripts) and of mixed tensors, which have both subscripts and superscripts.
