Equation PF Shirt Ideas

  1. Feb 27, 2017 #1
    I would be up for buying a T or Hoodie with some key equations on them eg;

    1. creation/annihilation operators

    2. Maxwell's equations in differential form with the title something like "god said <equations> and there was light"

    3. SWE

    4. HUP

    Interesting! Can you expand on 1,3,4?

    I am not very witty but I was thinking the equation and some meme quality phrase to go with it.

    really a tribal identification thing like how we used to find our own kind in a crowd by what band T-shirt they had on.

    The photon creation operator is ##a^\dagger##, right?

    A lightbulb moment.

    How about this?

    Nice. But the dagger should be a superscript, I think. I'd double check the maths with someone who is current on QM before putting it into production, too. It's been about 20 years since I did anything in that field...

    It has to be superscript. The state should use \rangle: ##\rangle##, not >. Also \mid, ##\mid##, not |

    ##a^\dagger \mid \! 0 \rangle = \mid \! 1 \rangle##
