Sir George Gabriel Stokes, 1st Baronet, PRS was an Irish mathematician and physicist. He was noted for his studies on the behaviour of viscous fluids, particularly for his law of viscosity, which describes the motion of a solid sphere in a fluid, and for Stokes' theorem, a basic theorem of vector analysis. His seminal contributions to fluid dynamics, optics and mathematical physics also paved way for a lot of future scientific research and revelations. He graduated from the Pembroke College, Cambridge as a senior wrangler and first Smith's prizeman and was elected for a fellowship. He was a senior associate to James Clark Maxwell and Lord Kelvin and this trio played a major role in contributing to the popularity of the Cambridge school of mathematical physics during the mid-nineteenth century. He was elected as the Lucasian professor of mathematics at Cambridge, and he held this post till he died. He became the first man since Isaac Newton to hold the three positions of Lucasian professor, secretary and the president of the Royal Society, and the first man to hold them simultaneously
