    There is no mathematical symbol for a singularity.

    If you like mathematical heresy, maybe: ##\frac{1}{0}##

    There are a differents kind of singularity, is a space-time singularity?, is a singularity of first or second kind in the sense of functions, is an essential singularity in the sense of complex analysis ...

    In my novel and what i believe is true, a black hole collapses into a singularity, this event creates a new universe on a new brane. What i need is a mathmatical symbol for this event, i will explain:

    Singularity+Collaspe.= New Universe.

    Thats my reasoning anyway, i wonder if there is an equation for this?

    What's the point? You need symbols for singularity, collapse, and new universe, all to make and equation that looks "mathy".

    True, i hear what your saying, im going to have to work it out myself then .;)

    What about the alternative:

    Boy - Barnsley = Singularity?

    I suggest you to use complicated terms as Schwarzschild radius or event horizon, but put symbols or equations in a novel is strange, I never remember novels with math equations or symbols ... (this is may personal opinion!)

    Thanks Ssnow, i agree it is strange but this would be the only one. It would fit nicely into the scheme of things.

    I think i might go with T=0 , that's the closest i think im going to get.
