Oliver Heaviside (1850 – 1925) was an English hearing-impaired eccentric, physicist and math genius who introduced the use of complex numbers in the analysis of electrical circuits. Similar to Nikola Tesla, he never married, had no children, and never showed particular interest in women.
At a low point in his live, his brother made arrangements for Heaviside to move in with his brother's wife's unmarried sister, Mary Way. During the 7-8 years they cohabited, Heaviside treated her like a slave, prescribing her when to leave the house, who to meet and what to dress. It remains unknown whether he had sex with her (though unlikely). After she was brought away, Heaviside claimed she had gone mad, though it cannot be clarified whether he drove her mad or she was difficult to deal with to begin with (though her unmarried state may suggest the latter).
