STS and Equations

There are a few different STS related studies that feature equations. Yeang discusses the development of the Austin-Cohen formula as an engineering/physics hybrid realized through the auspices and resources of the US Navy. MacKenzie, meanwhile, explores the realization of the Black-Scholes-Merton equation.
