A question posed on academia.SE prompts this follow-up question:
Is there an example of a famous physical law, constant, equation, theorem etc that was named after its discoverer by the discoverer him/herself?
Thinking of things like Newton's Laws, Josephson effect, Kalman filter, Turing machine, etc.
Usually these things are named by others - but did anyone ever say "I discovered what I propose to call the Jones effect"?
For reference, you can find a long list of "laws named after people" at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_scientific_laws_named_after_people (with thanks to J.W. Perry for first posting the link, and to HDE226868 for restoring it when the original comment was deleted)
I'm sure it's not a complete list...
