Some interesting historical tidbits here.

And Oliver Heaviside was Charles Wheatstone's nephew. Must be genetic ;)

Shame to an EE that didn't know Heaviside. Shame to a physicist too  :smiley-red: I had no idea who he was. It seems we owe a boat load of EM terms to him besides the formulation of 4 Maxwell's equations and the beloved vector calculus.

We should have a Heaviside membership above Faraday membership. I don't know about Tesla though.
