What does it mean to say that, given one metric, there is a compatible Riemannian metric?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

That is, is there a clear explanation of what "compatibility" means?

I'm just starting a DG course, so I really need a definition without too much rigor. Just looking for a way to understand it (kind of heuristic definition) until I have enough lingo down to understand the rigorous definitions floating around in papers...
