André-Marie Ampère (20 January – 10 June ) was a French physicist and mathematician who was one of the founders of the science of classical electromagnetism, which he referred to as "electrodynamics". The SI unit of measurement of electric current, the ampere, is. The ampere (/ ˈ æ m p ɪər, æ m ˈ p ɪər / or / ˈ æ m p ɛər / (UK), symbol: A), often shortened to "amp", is the base unit of electric current in the International System of Units (SI).

It is named after André-Marie Ampère (–), French mathematician and physicist, considered the father of electrodynamics. The International System of Units defines the ampere in terms of Named after: André-Marie Ampère.
