Both of your choices, Entity, are my favourites!!!! I just love those equations and the first one, i understood only a few days ago!

So for me, they are the best equations! :smile:

Does the Mandelbrot Set count as an equation? It's really more of an algorithm I suppose.

2+2=5
That is only true for large values of 2.

For me the Fourier transform equation is the most beautiful
[tex]

F(\omega)=\int_{-\infty}^{\infty} f(t) e^{i \omega t} dt


[/tex]

That is only true for large values of 2.
As long as the error bars are sufficiently broad it could work as well.

I like:

x2+y2=1
y = xx

[tex] f(x)=\frac{a_0}{2} + \sum_{n=1}^\infty \, [a_n \cos(nx) + b_n \sin(nx)] [/tex]

I'm surprised no one has put this one up yet!

The most beautiful "equation" is

[tex]\langle a,b~\vert~o(a)=2, o(b)=3, o(ab)=29, o((ab)^4(abb)^2)=50, o(a((ab)^4(abb)^2)^{25})=5, o(ab^{abababababb})=34\rangle[/tex]

Extra points for anybody who says what I've written down here :biggrin:

[tex]G_{\mu \nu} = 8T_{\mu \nu}[/tex]

Where I have set [tex]c = G = \pi = 1[/tex]

I'd say: 1 = 0. From this one, you can derive everything :biggrin:
:rofl:


What about i>u ?

I find derivatives beautiful even though I also hate them.

Math:

Euler's Equation
[tex]e^{\pm i \theta} = \cos(\theta) + i \sin(\theta)[/tex]

because it demonstrates the meaning of i as a transform/operator, rather than sqrt(-1)

Physics:

Continuity Equation (for conserved [tex]\phi[/tex]):
[tex]\frac{\delta \phi}{\delta t} + \nabla \cdot f = 0[/tex]

because it relates the physical meaning of the partial derivative to that of the total derivative.

Biology:

[tex]\Delta G = -n F \Delta E[/tex]

Energy for work is the number of moles of stored energy from electric charge.
