That whole article seems contrived nonsense. Why 11? Who selected the
11? Why not 23 or 42 or top 100?

Someone commented on the livescience article how they left out Euler's
formula as not good enough to be one of the ...err... 11.

It's far far better to get self promotion than never to realize that
that is exactly what those 11 equations served.
