Many thanks

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 .;)

This is genius.

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.
