I am trying to read a German math book and I am not sure about exact meaning of the following sentence:
Setze g zu einem metrischen Zusammenhang D fort.
I translate (guess) it as: extend g smoothly to a metric connection D.
which it is a bit meaningless. As far as I understand in a few hours till I started to read a German math book: "fort" is the second component of compound Words "Setze fort" that its translation is: "to continue" or "to proceed". This confused me since it is irrelevant to sentence a bit.
I am sure about translation of "metrischen Zusammenhang D" that is "metric connection D".
