COLLOCATIONS FROM CORPUS

■ VERB

occur

In this case either I or J must be unbounded, and a curvature singularity occurs .

There exists, however, a very large class of exceptional solutions in which curvature singularities do not occur .

The theory of general relativity predicts an infinite curvature, but whether such a physical singularity can really occur is not known.

In all these solutions, the singularity that occurs when corresponds to a Cauchy horizon.

It is therefore inevitable that some kind of singularity will occur on the hypersurface f + g 0.

Scalar polynomial curvature singularities therefore can not occur .

The sides and are the II-IV and III-IV boundaries respectively, and the focusing singularity occurs on the line.

EXAMPLES FROM OTHER ENTRIES

He is just trying to assert his singularity as a writer.

EXAMPLES FROM CORPUS

At the singularities, the equations of physics can not be defined; thus one can not predict what will happen.

Conversely, the fact that we are able to predict events is experimental evidence against singularities and for the no-boundary proposal.

However, the beginning in imaginary time will not be a singularity .

In the real time direction, this inevitably leads to singularities, places where space-time comes to an end.

The eye seeks and recognises the singularity of a symmetrical pair.

The most familiar class of singularities are the scalar curvature singularities.

This clearly demonstrates the existence of a scalar curvature singularity on this hypersurface.
