Gabriel Kron was regarded by most Engineers as a talented Electrical Engineer. He discovered the theory of negative resistance.


Born in 1901 in Nagybanya (Baia Mare)in the Carpathian Mountains in Hungary. He was thrown out of the University of Michigan at age 16 for arguing with his professors. His work on specific problems in electric motors and generators led him to pioneer in the use of tensor analysis for application in both rotating machinery and later in static networks. In 1934 he joined General Electric and worked there in various departments, all concerened with applied engineering.

Doctor of Engineering - 1936 : note of Univ. Michigan.

His books and 100 papers were written on weekends and at night. Gabriel Kron retired in 1966, died from a fatal illness in 1968.
