     3In InfoGrid, the term [wiki:Multiplicity] refers to the number of [wiki:MeshObject MeshObjects] that may participate in a [wiki:Relationship] of a particular RelationshipType with a given MeshObject. [wiki:Multiplicity] is expressed as a range from a minimum number (e.g. 0, or 2) to a maximum number (e.g. 1, 17, or `N`). `N` represents "any number", regardless how large.

     5[wiki:Multiplicity Multiplicities] are defined in InfoGrid [wiki:Model Models] where [wiki:RelationshipType RelationshipTypes] are defined.

     7Examples: 
     8 * 1:1 - given the source MeshObject, exactly one destination MeshObject will be found 
     9 * 0:5 - given the source MeshObject, between zero and 5 [wiki:MeshObject MeshObjects] will be found 
     10 * 1:N - given the source MeshObject, at least 1 and potentially any number of [wiki:MeshObject MeshObjects] will be found
