B How do we pronounce the subscripted variables in General Rel

    In General Relativity, the subscripts of G and T are u-ish and v. How do we say them?

    They are the Greek letters mu and nu. In American English, they are typically pronounced:

    μ - mew or myew
    ν - new or nyew

    Here is a YouTube where you can hear them pronounced.
