if the higgs boson is found, we can make things mass-less, and you can have a hover-bike.
the applications are practically endless. no more weight restrictions.

I got a hardcore science question: where did stuff come from, originally?
Bet you can't answer that, Smartypants.

The first function above is the substitution of that Lagrangian into the action equation (which I didn't give, but it should be known to even the most novice String Theorist: S = [int]L dt) specifically for any spin-1/2 particle (fermions).
These functions also need to be known by String Theorists in order to solve for equations of motion, which are essential and describe how a system reacts to external forces.
The equation I initially posted, oh so long ago, involved the substitution of variables (which were given) to simplify, as well the condition that the integral was only for a given theta value (which was given as 0, so that part didn't even need to be taken into consideration - though, ironically, this is the part that the OP chose to focus on).
So, in the simplest terms, the answer is: the function describes the action, with respect to time, of any and all fermions.

It is, in fact, an action. Let me, using the given variable substitutions, revert to its original equation:
Plus, I'll give you this:
That should help.
It's hilarious that you think that's what that was supposed to mean. theta=0 was my favorite part. Second only to the random insertion of integral dtheta. But really all of it was pretty hilarious.
Hm. As a String Theorist, I would've assumed your ability to extrapolate and apply would be better than this.
Do you even know what the second function is?
Since the OP seems to have run away, I will give the solution to what I asked... just so people know that it was a reasonable request to ask of a String Theorist.
The second function above is the first-order Lagrangian describing the energy dynamics of a massless, spinless particle. This is the basis for all superstring derivations - when String Theorists mathematically predict the dynamic (energetic) qualities of a string corresponding to any given particle, this is the base equation that allows such a prediction. It would be impossible for any String Theorist to make any contribution to the theory whatsoever if he didn't know this basic function.

It came from George Carlin's bedside cabinet. Duh...
