TARDIS Technical Index

Core Time Travel Equations

Some of the core time-travel equations

The Temporal Physics Equations that govern Time Travel are so complicated they couldn't all be stored in a human mind. The most basic of these is E = MC3. Another important equation is 76Zs = EQ cubed. All Gallifreyan temporal technology must take into account the fact that revolution-induced gravity affects all temporal manipulation. The "closer" a TARDIS is to Gallifrey's Time Zone (3.5 billion years ago and the centre of the Mutter's Stellian Spiral) the easier it is to navigate.
