"This [problem] has been particularly frustrating, and yet Chloe ... she solved it in a minute flat. Whatever alien influence she's under, it's studying this ship."

Chloe eqn2

Chloe Armstrong's equation was the first mathematical problem that Chloe Armstrong, under the influence of the Nakai pathogen, solved for Dr. Nicholas Rush. (SGU: "Pathogen")

The problem, with its accompanying solution, is:

$ -\int g \sin\gamma \,dt = -\ddot{r}t \sin\gamma. $


In integral calculus, it is trivial that

$ \int f(x) \,dt = t \cdot f(x) $

$ \frac{d}{dt}\left[t \cdot f(x)\right] = f(x). $

Dr. Rush, having completely mastered calculus, should have realized that

$ -\int \lambda \sin\gamma\,dt = -\lambda t \sin\gamma. $

Thus, it is assumed that the solution to Chloe's equation is dependent on the fact that

$ \lambda := \ddot{r}. $

However, during integration, constant variables should be ignored. Thus, it is assumed that the presence of $ t\! $ somehow allowed for $ g \mapsto \ddot{r} $.
