Great equations

From Arts and Letters Daily (of all places), I learnt about this piece on Physicsweb about great equations (ranging from the elegant world-of-math-in-microcosm that is Euler's equation, to the fundamental "1+1=2") and what makes them great. A sense of wonder, Robert Crease concludes. I love how wonder is a common feeling in math and science as much as art.
