Using my A to Z Archives: Kelvin (the scientist)


If complex numbers aren’t the dominant theme of this year’s A-to-Z, then biographies are. I’ve written biographies for past series, though. Here, from 2018, is a tiny slice about William Thompson, Lord Kelvin, and one of those bits of his work that is mathematical and important and had a huge effect on the world. But it’s also become invisible. So please consider a couple hundred words about that.

I was born 198 years to the day after Johnny Appleseed. The differences between us do not end there. He/him.
