A selftaught authority on electromagnetic theory, telegraphy and telephony, Oliver Heaviside (18501925) dedicated his adult life to the improvement of electrical technologies. Inspired by James Clerk Maxwell's field theory, he spent the 1880s presenting his ideas as a regular contributor to the weekly journal, The Electrician. The publication of Electrical Papers, a year after his election to the Royal Society in 1891, established his fame beyond the scientific community. An eccentric figure with an impish sense of humour, Heaviside's accessible style enabled him to educate an entire generation in the importance and application of electricity. In so doing he helped to establish that very British phenomenon, the gardenshed inventor. Illustrated with practical examples, the subjects covered in Volume 1 include voltaic constants, duplex telegraphy, microphones and electromagnets

Oliver Heaviside FRS (18501925) was a scientific maverick and a gifted selftaught electrical engineer, physicist and mathematician. He patented the coaxial cable, pioneered the use of complex numbers for circuit analysis, and reworked Maxwell's field equations into the more concise format we use today. In 1891 the Royal Society made him a Fellow for his mathematical descriptions of electromagnetic phenomena. Along with Arthur Kennelly, he also predicted the existence of the ionosphere. Often dismissed by his contemporaries, his work achieved wider recognition when he received the inaugural Faraday Medal in 1922. Published in 1899, the second of three volumes of Heaviside's collected work argues that physical problems (such as the age of the Earth) drive mathematical ideas, and then goes on to compare the propagation of electromagnetic waves with physical analogues

Oliver Heaviside : maverick mastermind of electricity by
Basil Mahon(
Book
)
3 editions published in 2009 in English and Undetermined and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Oliver Heaviside (18501925) was one of the great pioneers of electrical science. His ideas led to huge advances in communications and now form much of the bedrock of electrical engineering every textbook and every college course bears his stamp. Despite having little formal education he created the mathematical tools that were to prove essential to the proper understanding and use of electricity. At first his ideas were thought to be outrageous and he had to battle long and hard against ignorance, prejudice and vested interests to get them accepted. Yet they are now so much a part of everyday electrical science that they are simply taken for granted and our great debt to him is rarely acknowledged. Caring nothing for social or mathematical conventions, he lived a fiercely independent life, much of the time close to poverty. His writings reveal a personality like no other and are laced with wickedly irreverent humour; he is by far the funniest author of scientific papers. Basil Mahon combines an account of Heaviside's life with an insight into his scientific thinking and the reasons for its enduring influence

From obscurity to enigma : the work of Oliver Heaviside, 18721889 by
Ido Yavetz(
Book
)
1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
Oliver Heaviside's electromagnetic investigations  from the publication of his first electrical paper in 1972 to the public recognition awarded to him by Lord Kelvin in 1889  have consistently attracted attention over the years, and of late have become a major source for the study of the development of field theory after Maxwell. "From Obscurity to Enigma" is the only comprehensive, indepth analysis of Heaviside's work. It analyses and elucidates his brilliant but often closetoindecipherable Electrical Papers and traces the evolution of his ideas against the background of growing knowledge in basic electromagnetic theory, telegraphy and telephony during these years. The book will be appreciated by historians of science and technology in the late 19th and early 20th centuries and by physicists and electrical engineers, many of whom are aware of Heaviside's contributions to their respective fields
