Appendix B Symbols
Note that some symbols have multiple usages and definitions, depending on context. Although this is undesirable, this reflects the usage of the same symbol in multiple dis-ciplines. Commonly applied symbology makes extension of this text through other work within these fields more approachable, and consistent with the derivation and usage.
Therefore, the treatment of common symbol usage within each discipline was generally accepted, unless these definitions would create non-obvious ambiguity in any one chapter.
