Agreed... I don't think this is a PD question.
If you write a formula and publish it as part of your work, the University may
be entitled to ownership according to this agreement. Doesn't matter if the
formula was written in pencil, pen, on paper, in sand, etc.

I remember having to sign this same type of agreement as a grad student at the
UCSD math department (before i dropped out :-) )
