    • inter To place in the earth and cover with it.
    • inter Specifically To bury; inhume; place in a grave, or, by extension, in a tomb of any kind.
    • inter A Latin preposition meaning ‘between’ or ‘among,’ used in some Latin phrases occurring in English books, as in inter nos (between or among ourselves), inter arma silent leges (laws are silent among arms—that is, in time of war), etc., and very common as a prefix. See inter-.
    • inter A Middle English form of enter.
    • inter A common prefix meaning ‘between’ or ‘among’ or ‘during,’ occurring in many English words taken from the Latin, either directly or through Middle English and Old French or French forms (being then in Middle English also enter-, and so retained in some modern forms: see enter-), or formed in English on the Latin model. Words formed in English with this prefix may have the second element of non-Latin origin, as in interdash, interknow, intertangle, interweave, etc. The second element is (in the original) either a verb, as in interact, v., intercalate, intercept, interchange, etc., or a noun, as in interact, n., interaxis, interval, intervale, etc. The prefix is freely used in English in the making of new compounds, often without immediate reference to its Latin status. In such cases, in the following etymologies, it is, for the sake of brevity, usually treated as an English prefix, and not carried back to the Latin preposition, as in other cases. For the relation of inter- to the second element in adjectives, compare the similar relation of ante-, anti-, etc.

For this purpose we calculated Drude weight of a wire in the presence of neighboring wire and try to seen how it varies by changing both the interaction and random potential, expecting it to provide us informations on whether the inter-wire interaction has any effect on the Anderson localization within the wire.
