Charles Proteus Steinmetz (April 9, 1865 – October 26, 1923; born Carl August Rudolph Steinmetz) was a German American mathematician and electrical engineer. Among his important contributions to the sciences include the law of hysteresis, his symbolic method of calculating alternating-current, and his theory of electrical transients.
