I agree F=ma is more important than the law of Gravity; but in defense of the gravity equation: it is the only one on the list which uses the very important inverse square formulation.

Second, what about V=IR and PV=nRT? which are both fundamental. I think of the big four as:

F=ma,
V=IR,
PV=nRT, and
e=mc^2.

I'd probably add Schroedinger's in there to make 5.

I've spent years using Fourier series, but I still don't think they are very fundamental.

F = ma has had more impact (heh) than most of these.

ke = 0.5mv^2 will accelerate away and win the vote, but F=ma will have lots of momentum.

Y = C + I + G

National Income equals Private consumption plus Private Investment plus Government spending. All you have to do to be successful is increase G!

But yeah, I realize mine is a Social science equation and these are all natural science equations

What? No dude named Mohammed or Achmed in there? I keep being told Islam was so important in science!

What, no Euler's formula? e^ix = cos x + i sin x.

That's sort of hidden away inside the Fourier equation.

You wouldn't have Fourier analysis without Euler's Equation--which one's more fundamental?

Yeah, the Euler Beta Function spawned Kaluza-Klein, Yang-Mills, and M-Theory.

Government Stimulus Multiplication Factor = 1.7, i.e. the Obama stimulus where spending $707B on shovel-ready projects would produce $1.2T in economic growth and cause 250,000 jobs to be created per month (in 2010). Still waiting for that single month of 250,000 jobs created. Guess that will have to wait for the second year of President Paul.
