Hi, I saw this tshirt on Amazon: http://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B00IWTWQD...ter_B00IWTWQKI but I don't understand what it means. It seems to be physics but I figure that is pretty much just applied math so you guys can help me out? A lot of these tshirts I've seen are funny but this one went straight over my head.

Looks like nonsense to me. The path integrals aren't sensible as far as I can tell.

Both your response and the one before you have made me feel a little less stupid for not getting it but then I am not very mathematical (although I am trying). All I really knew is that it had something to do with calculus given the dt and ds, that is my level of knowledge (or lack thereof).
