From Wikiquote

**George Green** (July 14, 1793 – May 31, 1841) was a British mathematician and physicist, who wrote *An Essay on the Application of Mathematical Analysis to the Theories of Electricity and Magnetism* (Green, 1828).[1] The essay introduced several important concepts, among them a theorem similar to modern Green's theorem, the idea of potential functions as currently used in physics, and the concept of what are now called Green's functions.
