I'm having trouble understanding the following sentence from Schutz's(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); A First Course in General Relativity, so I was hoping someone could explain/expound on it. "

[tex] p_a \equiv \widetilde{p}( \vec{e_{\alpha} ) } ) [/tex] Any component with a single lower index is, by convention, the component of a one-form; an upper index denotes the component of a vector."
