Oliver Heaviside


Self-taught English electrical engineer, mathematician, and physicist who adapted complex numbers to the study of electrical circuits, invented mathematical techniques to the solution of differential equations (later found to be equivalent to Laplace transforms), reformulated Maxwell's field equations in terms of electric and magnetic forces and energy flux, and independently co-formulated vector analysis. Although at odds with the scientific establishment for most of his life, Heaviside changed the face of mathematics and science for years to come.]

In 1910 Heaviside was nominated for the Nobel Prize in physics.

In later years his behavior became quite eccentric. He never married.

He died 3 February 1925.
