Abstract

Nikola Tesla was a Serbian-American inventor. He was born in the small village of Smiljan at midnight on July 10, 1856. In 1884 he moved to the United States where he eventually established himself as an inventor in New York City. Multiple works have been composed about the life of Nikola Tesla; in this paper I will focus on the mind of Nikola Tesla. This biography will not follow the conventional, chronological layout. Instead, each section will relay, describe, and implement an idea. Through this method, an understanding and appreciation for the mind of the generally unknown electrical genius will be attained.
