Animation reveals the world's hidden equations

MacGregor Campbell, contributor

Although they don't actually exist in the physical world, our most powerful tools could be mathematical equations. They underlie much of modern technology, from radio to power generation, to photo compression and electronic musical instruments.
In our latest animated explainer, we look at how the wave equation, Maxwell's equations and the Fourier transform came to rule the modern world. To find out more, read our full-length feature, Seven equations that rule your world.
For more math-related viewing check out our archive of One-Minute-Math
videos, or watch our previous animations to find out, for example, if supersymmetry could explain everything or why there is no such thing as empty space
