What is Multiple: Definition and 1000 Discussions

A multiple-unit train or simply multiple unit (MU) is a self-propelled train composed of one or more carriages joined together, which when coupled to another multiple unit can be controlled by a single driver, with multiple-unit train control.
Although multiple units consist of several carriages, single self-propelled carriages - also called railcars, rail motor coaches or railbuses - are in fact multiple-units when two or more of them are working connected through multiple-unit train control (regardless if passengers can walk between the units or not).
The term multiple unit does not denote locomotives using multiple-unit train control.

    Mathematica - How to Go to Next Line Without Running Process?

    I am trying to run multiple lines input in Mathematica in the free-form input. From everything I read online, you simply hit "enter", but hitting enter runs my process. Both enters, the one next to my letters, and the one on the numerical keypad. Hitting shift+enter also runs it. I can't...

    Powering multiple devices in a low-voltage DC circuit

    Hello, I'm putting together a shutter-speed testing device. I have the schematic at hand, but my question is this: If I need to power two or three different devices in a DC circuit, each with low, but slightly different voltage requirements, can I do that by using a single powerful enough DC...

    I How can multiple entangled Qubits be represented and visualized?

    One Qubit can be represented on the Bloch sphere. How would multiple entangled Qubits (say 2 or 3) be represented? Classically, one would think that if one Qubit is represented on a Bloch sphere, 2 Qubits would be represented on 2 Bloch spheres, but I'm pretty sure it doesn't work this way. I...

    To find total work done from multiple reversible processes

At end of process we reach P1 again from...
