I know this is a physics question but the answer is mathematical.

 

In Stephen Hawking's "A Brief History of Time" he says that there is an equation that explains how a particle will not look the same if one rotates it 360 degrees but it will look the same if it is rotated 720 degrees. Can anyone explain this equation?
