Definitions for magnetic discontinuity
The Standard Electrical Dictionary
A break or gap in a magnetic circuit. To make a complete circuit the iron or other core must be continuous. If the armature of a horseshoe magnet is in contact with both poles the continuity is complete. If the armature is not in contact magnetic continuity gives place to discontinuity. It is an attribute of a paramagnetic substance only, and is identical for permanent magnets, or for electro-magnets.
