(3) one of several techniques of suspending a driveshaft within a bearing so that no contact is made between the shaft and other surfaces.
(4) one of several techniques for suspending a railroad train above its tracks so that wheels are not needed. Typically, superconducting magnets are needed, and propulsion is by a linear induction motor cf whose armature lies along the rails.
