Peter Guthrie Tait (1831 -1901) was a Scottish physicist and mathematician who laid the foundation for vector analysis and other techniques of advanced mathematics and mathematical physics. He was professor of natural philosophy at the University of Edinburgh, and collaborated with Lord Kelvin on the development of the key concepts of energy and thermodynamics. Like Kelvin, he was widely known as an orthodox Christian of strong Biblical faith.
