It maybe difficult to see, so I played with the brightness and contrast:


I believe I have figured out some of them.

  • Maxwell Electrostatics Equation for EMF Induction

For which the LaTeX code is:

\oint_{\partial S}\mathbf{E}\cdot\mathrm{d}\mathbf{l}=-\frac{\partial\Phi_{B,S}}{\partial t}

And produces: Maxwell

  • Euler's Identity for Complex Numbers

For which the LaTeX code is:


And produces: complex
