PhysicsWeb: The greatest equations ever

Pointed out by the The NSDL Scout Report for Math, Engineering, and Technology v3 n23 (November 5, 2004), although I am subscribed to the feed.
by Robert P Crease, October 2004.
This Physics World columnist asked readers to submit nominations for the greatest equations of all time. What he found out is that there were different interpretations of the question and that some of the equations have a deeper political, cultural, or historical context that is perhaps more important than the scientific use.
