Video, pop-up, animated gif, cartoon, four ways to discover the key equations of modern physics.
The Equations project
Students in scientific illustration have attempted, in collaboration with physicists, to stage physics equations, and not just any of them: the Schrödinger equation for quantum physics, that of Navier-Stokes for fluid mechanics , the equation of general relativity, and the propagation equation of electromagnetic waves. Each group of students used an original graphic form: the pop-up book, the poetic animation, the comic strip, and the animated gif. Discover and use these productions to understand and stage these fundamental equations.
