George Stokes (1819-1903), Irish physicist and mathematician. Stokes is said to have worked in all areas of physics, with the one exception of electricity. He deduced an equation (Stoke's law) describing the motion of a small sphere falling through a viscous medium. He also derived laws, subsequently named after him, describing fluorescence and integral operations in vector calculus.
