My grandfather got me this T-shirt as a present; however no one seems to know what the equation represents. The only clue is that it's from CERN. Do any of you guys know it?

Yes, you're right! I found it; it's called the Lagrangian of the Standard Model. Thanks!

This equation may be related with quantum mechanics and possibly connect with Schrödinger's equation. I'm not exactly sure what it means, but I would search a list if I were you. I may even search it myself and report it back to you.
