Hi!
Just wanted to get some help from all you wonderful guys!! Can anybody help me with providing a link to a website that has all weird and wonderful formula to work out stuff  you know the kind  with more greek letters than you would find in a greek book and all those other wonderful curly letters that they use. If you must know  I really don't care what they mean (though I probably read up on thembut thats just me!) but I wnat to put it on a poster soooo the more weird looking the formula are, the better! Thank you!!!!!!

So you just want to see huge formulas that you don't understand?

Try finding a formula on Eric Weisstein's site, big or small, that at least explains what it is doing. Then use it for your poster.

Weird and wonderful Physic & MAth Formula
(Personally, I tend to like formulae which are elegant, concise and short that I understand the meaning of; however, some of Ramanujan's identities still strike me as "beautiful" even though I don't know a single step in the derivation of the formula)

try
http://archive.ncsa.uiuc.edu.Cyberia...athemine1.html or just go to The Einstein Equations site and look under "mathmine field equations in 2d".

I have these on my coffee mug. They're called the "Grand Challenge Equations"

Don't forget the famous ones like Einstein's equation, or the expressions for the blackbody spectrum as derived by Planck.

Thanks Chrono!! The site is like SUPERCOOL!!!
BTW gotta better "project" for the equations which just struck me! Our engineering faculty wants TShirt designs soo...the equations have given me a very nice idea for a wicked T design!!! Thanks all for help!!!

The tshirts would be a cool idea! You should sell them, I'm sure we would buy some.

The late Richard Feynman is famous for, among other things, his 'Feynman diagrams.' There is an anecdote that goes back to the period of time when he was first speaking on that topic at seminars on field theory. Supposedly a couple of bigtime physicists were discussing what they had learned from the talks at a seminar, and all they could say relative to Feynman's talk was that he wrote equations with "funnylooking slashes" through some of the symbols. The use of the slash is to save some writing of symbols when dealing with spinors, and it is pretty common to come across it these days.

Hi!
It's been a year since I posted this thread asking you guys for help and I realised I didn't show you guys the final product. This is the design I made for our engineering faculty TShirt competition. They haven't decided on anything yet so dunno if they're using it. It is a bit small though  the original.png file is. like, 250KB and about 5x the size. Anyways, hope you like!!
