I dedicate this website to my late brother Rik.

He faced setbacks for four lives.

He showed resilience to cope with the problems of eight lives.

He was only granted half a life.

This website bears the name of Oliver Heaviside.

He shaped the mathematics now used in circuit theory.

He defined the operators rot(ation), grad(ient) and div(ergence), that allow simplifying Maxwell's equations.

His view on mathematics inspires me:

I hold the view that it is essentially an experimental science,

like any other, and should be taught observationally, descriptively, and experimentally.

the forgotten genius of Oliver Heaviside, Basil Mahon
