After a scientist fully understanding the physics they found that these are most obscure formulas that rule the world. You probably
don't think about the Dirac equation on an average day, but it describes just
about everything that happens to you.

Physics is dominated by dual theoretical systems: quantum
mechanics for the subatomic realm, relativity for cosmic scales. Understanding
the behavior of a basic particle like an electron requires reconciling the two.
In 1928 English physicist Paul Dirac did that with his equation describing an
electron in terms of both its wave function (ψ)—the
quantum probability of its being in a particular place—and its mass times the
speed of light squared (mc2), a relativistic interpretation of its energy. The
equation specifically shows how particles align in medical scanners, but in a
broader sense it explains the very essence of how matter works. “Electrons make
up almost all observable things,” says physicist Laurie Brown, “and this is a
description of the electron that satisfies all known requirements of nature.”

**CLOCKING EVOLUTION**

K = 2NuP

K = u

To find the last common ancestor of any two species,
scientists look to the molecular clock, which describes how quickly genetic
mutations accrue. According to the clock equation, the rate at which mutations
become permanent (K) equals the rate at which those mutations happen (u) times
the population size (N) times the probability (P) that a mutation will become
permanent, times 2. When dealing with mutations that confer no selective
advantage, says Michael Steiper of Hunter College in New York, “the amount of
genetic difference scales to time.” In other words, each gene is equally likely
to become fixed, with probability 1/(2N), producing the simplified bottom
formula. Molecular clocks allow scientists to trace the ancient tree of life,
even when fossil evidence is scarce, and help find the branches that led to
modern humans. You are collecting mutations (data for future anthropologists)
right now.

**EXPONENTIAL DECAY**

N(t) = N

_{0}e^{-}^{λ}^{t}
In 1899 Ernest Rutherford noticed that half of the atoms
in a sample of radioactive radon gas disappeared with each passing minute. He
had discovered
both
radioactive decay, in which certain elements break down by emitting subatomic
particles, and half-life, the time it takes for half the atoms in a sample to
decay. Each radioactive element decays exponentially, decreasing over time (t)
at a rate proportional to the number of atoms there are (N). By measuring how
much of the original element remains, scientists can determine the age of a
sample. Elements like uranium 238, which has a half-life of 4.5 billion years,
let geologists determine the age of rocks and meteorites; those that decay over
thousands of years, like carbon-14, help date archaeological artifacts and
human remains.

**PROSPECT THEORY**

V(x,p) = v(x)w(p)

People hate losing money about twice as much as they love
making it: It takes a $20 discount, researchers have found, to make up for the
sting of a $10 surcharge on a purchase. That is one reason why even experienced
stockbrokers often sell stocks while they are still increasing in value,
leaving money on the table rather than risking a loss. Prospect theory’s
central formula lays out how we go with our gut when determining the value (V)
of a possible outcome (x) with a given probability (p). It takes into account
many of people’s most predictable—and, at times, peculiar—financial
irrationalities: shying away from losses, for instance, and overestimating tiny
probabilities like the 1-in-10-million chance of winning the lottery.

**DOPPLER EQUATION**

Δ λ/ λ =

*v/c*
Slight shifts in the color of light coming from a distant
star can clue astronomers in to an orbiting planet via the Doppler equation,
which links changes in the wavelength (λ) of light to the
motion (v) of the thing emitting it. As a star approaches, its light is
compressed and looks bluer; as it moves away, the light stretches and reddens.
An unseen planet that tugs the star back and forth will yield a characteristic
pattern of color changes. Closer to home, the Doppler equation helps enforce
speed limits and predict weather by measuring the speed of cars and storm
systems; Doppler shifts also alter radio signals from communications satellites
in ways that must be canceled out.
