Did you read about this? Found by physicist looking at quantum theory...

Blicky to the formula

Many articles...

Don't know what the lambda is

I don't recognise all of the notation. What's with the n-1 at the bottom right? a subscript? a low-flying superscript? There's also a mysterious dot at the right-hand end, which may or may not be punctuation.

Perhaps it's all a Darstadly Plot to make me feel old.

A Pochhammer symbol apparently.

Falling and rising factorials

IIRC, lambda is wavelength.

Correct, Leeneia. My son also informed me that capital-lambda is the symbol for the video game Half-Life (apparently because radioactive decay turns up in the first few sentences of the back story); this reminded me in turn that Lambda-CDM is the name of the (current) standard cosmological model in physics .... though in our house, it stands for the half-life of Cadbury's Dairy Milk in the fridge.
