    • I don't think MIT can claim the idea of the shirt. I've seen it all over the place. University of Washington had a shirt with that writing on it in the early 2000's, and I'm sure other places had it sooner.

      • I saw the exact shirt in the pic above in the 80s when I was there.
        I never meant to imply that it was exclusive. That just happens to be when/where I saw it first.

  1. I have the exact same shirt, it is of Maxwell's equations (describing the electromagnetic field) in integral form. I always wear that when I have to do something in classical or quantum electromagnetics at university. You can forget the mathematics behind them, it is more important to understand their physical meaning.
    Check it out yourself:'s_equat

  2. I also have seen this shirt around MIT since the early-mid 1980s, though it was usually white type on a navy-colored t-shirt. It is worn proudly by nerds here in Cambridge to this very day.
