Science, technology, and mathematics[edit]

Mathematics[edit]

  • Mathematical singularity, a point at which a given mathematical object is not defined or not "well-behaved", for example infinite or not differentiable

Geometry[edit]

Complex analysis[edit]

Natural sciences[edit]

Technology[edit]

  • Singularity (operating system), an operating system developed by Microsoft Research written in managed code
  • Mechanical singularity, a position or configuration of a mechanism or a machine where the subsequent behavior cannot be predicted
  • Technological singularity, a hypothetical moment in time when any physically conceivable level of technological advancement is attained instantaneously - up until physical limits are reached - usually as a consequence of artificial intelligence having progressed to the point where increasingly more efficient self-improvement is viable.
  • Singularity (software), a container technology that does not require root permissions to run, so it is compatible with often permission-constrained High-Performance Compute (HPC) environments. It works on MacOS, Windows and Linux.
