Top Ten Coolest Mathematical Equations

Nerds and geeks alike, cast your votes on your favourite equations used in mathematics, science, economics; whatever you please.

The Top Ten

1 Schrödinger Equation [(-ħ/2m)Δ^2Ψ+VΨ=iħ(δΨ/δt)]

Oh my God! What the hell is all this?! Symbols and what not. This is 'cool?! ' I just don't get it. Explain, I demand! - Britgirl

Love this equation. So much. Everything about it is brilliant! - PositronWildhawk

It is that something does not exist unless it is observed. - CityGuru

Perfect I'm gonna learn that next year - Rhapsody

2 Maxwell's Equations [Δ.D=ρ, Δ.B=0, ΔxE=-δB/δt, ΔxH=J+δD/δt]

I have no idea what this is but it looks nice - Teravolt1422

3 Einstein's Mass-energy Equivalence Formula [E=mc^2]

Not only is it cool, but most people have heard of it! It's well known! - Beatlesboy9

4 General Relativity Formula [Gμν=8πG(Tμν+ρΛgμν)]

There is more to General than Special!

5 Law of Gravitation [F=G(m1m2/d^2)]

I hate this one always trap me - Rhapsody

6 Wave Equation [δ^2u/δt^2=c^2(δ^2u/δx^2)]
7 Fourier Transform [f(ζ)=ʃf(x)e^(-2πixζ)δx]
8 Euler's Formula [e^iπ=-1]

Most beautiful equation in maths
Has one one, one plus, one multiplication sign, one exponential sign!

I have a low-key obsession with this identity, although I prefer to see it written as "e^iπ + 1 = 0." - PetSounds

9 Bernoulli Equation [P1+½ρ(v1)^2+ρgh1=P2+½ρ(v2)^2+ρgh2]

One of the coolest one in fluid mechanics because of the symmetry in its look and use. It's one of the easiest to remember! - Kiteretsunu

10 Planck's Law [E=hf]

I've learnt it recently so useful - Rhapsody

The Contenders

11 Newton's Second Law [F=ma]

The heart of dynamics - Rhapsody

12 Riemann Zeta Function [ζ(s)=Π((p^s)/((p^s)-1))]
13 L = (1/2)dv^2sCL
14 Principle of Least Action [δS≥0]
15 Heisenberg's Uncertainty Principle [ΔxΔp≥ћ/2]
16 Schwartzchild Radius Formula [rs=2GM/c^2]

Adore this one as well. Awesome stuff! - PositronWildhawk

17 Escape Velocity Formula [ve=sqrt(2GM/r)]
18 Q = KAT(t2-t1)/L
19 Central Limit Theorem [lim_n->∞ P( √n(Sn - µ) ≤ z ) = Φ(z/σ)]

I think this is one of the most important equations in mathematics. - Flav

20 Fundamental Theorem of Calculus d/dx a-xʃf(t)dt = f(x)
