Nice to see Carl Friedrich Gauss on a German postage stamp and degauss in this week's theme. It made me turn to Irish stamps to see what scientists might be commemorated there. Gauss's slightly later contemporary, William Rowan Hamilton, was to be found: he, I understand, invented or discovered quaternions but I don't think there is any special linguistic use of the term - to dehamilton or even dequateriate!
