Most stars are formed in a cluster or association, where the number density of stars can be high. This means that a large fraction of initially-single stars will undergo close encounters with other stars and/or exchange into binaries.

We define a singleton as a single star which has never suffered close encounters with other stars or spent time within a binary...[Show more]
