initial singularity
  تکینی ِ آغازین   
takini-ye âqâzin (#)

Fr.: singularité initiale   

An instant of infinite density, infinite pressure, and infinite temperature where the equations of general relativity break down, if the standard Big Bang theory is extrapolated all the way back to time zero. → singularity.

initial; → singularity.

naked singularity
  تکینی ِ برهنه   
takini-ye berehné (#)

Fr.: singularité nue   

A singularity that is not surrounded by an event horizon. It will therefore be visible and communicable to the outside world.

naked; → singularity.

Schwarzschild singularity
  تکینی ِ شو‌آرتسشیلد   
takini-ye Schwarzschild

Fr.: singularité de Schwarzschild   

A region of infinite → space-time curvature postulated to lie within a → black hole.

Schwarzschild black hole; → singularity.

singularity
  تکینی   
takini (#)

Fr.: singularité   

1) Math.: A point at which a given mathematical object is not defined.
2) Physics: A point in → space-time in which gravitational force causes space-time to have infinite curvature; matter is crushed to infinite density and zero volume. This happens at the center of a → black hole where space and time cease to exist as we know them, and the known laws of physics break down. See also → Schwarzschild singularity; → initial singularity.

singular + → -ity.
