Holy carp. Reading this shirt is like being in my quantum mechanics class all over again!

I can't control my hand...must....buy....

This design is really outside the box from Ramyb's normal designs...

or is it still in the box...

I'm confused.

I'd love a print for the wall, but I think it's a bit too nerdy, even for me, to wear about.

Well... At least several of its quantum particles theoretically can.

This is (much) more for physicists than mathematicians. But yeah, it might get some folks to stare at places they've never much bothered with before.

I will marry the first man who comes up to me while I'm wearing this shirt and either laughs while pointing at my chest saying, "I've gotta have that!" (double entendre intended) or rips it off

Regina dear, I will not only point, laugh, and rip it off.....but how will we know it ever happened? :-)

lol, this shirt is amazing. no true physicist will be able to resist

also, I should mention for people who are wondering, the cat consists of various representations of the Schroedinger's equation and equations for representing wave functions (psi)

Despite loathing the majority of Ramyb's work I briefly thought about picking this one up. Then I came to the conclusion it would actually be a pretty douchey shirt to wear since I know most people won't have a clue what it's about, just begging them to ask about it, then I get to act all smug and explain quantum mechanics and Schrodinger's cat to them. :/

I thought about picking this up, but can't get past the ramyb factor... and other than the wave equation at the bottom, I'm not sure if the rest is gibberish

Just a bit of uninvited curmudgeon commentary:

I know this is just meant to be cute, not really meaningful -- sadly, girly-cute shirts beat out actually-clever shirts way too often, bringing into doubt the big change in 1919 -- but Schroedinger's Cat refers not to any equation he wrote, but illustrates his, and Einstein's, opposition to Heisenberg's junk science.

See, Heisenberg was using unscientific methodology to justify an unsound set of shortcuts in physics, and Schroedinger was using the cat example to explain how nonsensical it was. So the actual Schroedinger's Cat equation is Heisenberg's.

The importance of that is so great, and supposed science fans so ignorant of it, that it bears mentioning, here:

Schroedinger, Einstein, Popper, and von Mises were a sort of last bastion of sound scientific method, at a time when bureaucrat-funded junk science was coming to dominate.

Their opponents, the Forces of Darkness, included Heisenberg, Bohr, and the rest of the Copenhagen frauds. While our Brave Heroes advocated Scientific Realism, a strict set of rules for keeping science sound and accurate, the Dark Side preferred the quick hype and easy results of Scientific Instrumentalism, where you play fast and loose with the facts, in order to impress bureaucratic committees into funding your work more easily.

Sadly, the Evil Empire won, which is why we've had the Scientific Consensus run down blind alleys for decades, before realizing that everything we "knew" about some given discipline was actually off-base.

This shirt would have been amazing with a glow-in-the-dark dead cat. As it is, the message isn't clear at a glance to anyone unfamiliar with the equation itself.

It is actually all of the forms Schrodinger's wave equation can take for different types of systems in different energy potentials. Pretty much the ground base for all quantum mechanics.

You really think that the Copenhagen approach is related to and advocating bad science? You may not like their approach to quantum physics, and you may also disagree with them, but Instrumentalism has an advantage: you need to find a way to describe phenomena that you see. It gives us predictive methods that sometimes elude our ability to justify. Also it was not always in this direction. Take for example Bell's experiment which was meant to combat the hypotheses of the Copenhagen bunch... but when the ability to perform the experiment actually came to be, the results supported the idea of a "collapse" into a specific situation rather than the result having been established before observation.

The quantum world is a headache to think about, but it would be a huge jump to call everyone out who deals with it as a fraud.

Some things never change, look at the global warming argument today.

It's a great idea for a shirt regardless.

If I were to assign a quote to this cat it would be: "To be, or not to be, that is the equation."
