Gauss
Gauss Gauss (gous), n. [So named after Karl F. Gauss, a German mathematician.] 1. (Elec.) The C.G.S. unit of density of magnetic field, equal to a field of one line of force per square centimeter, being thus adopted as an international unit at Paris in 1900; sometimes used as a unit of intensity of magnetic field. It was previously suggested as a unit of magnetomotive force. [Webster 1913 Suppl.]

2. Karl F. Gauss, a German mathematician. [PJC]
