Resonance: harmonic resonance

I'm researching theory, resonance.
All I found was resonance as the name of phenomena although I need to figure out who and when it was advocated. Does any one know when resonance was advocated by whom?
I found the term harmonic resonance. Can anyone help me?

From the Wikipedia entry on Resonance:

"In physics, resonance is the tendency of a system to absorb more energy when the frequency of the oscillations matches the system's natural frequency of vibration (its resonant frequency) than it does at other frequencies."

I'm not sure of what you are looking for. Resonance isn't something that is advocated, it is something that is observed to happen. Asking who advocated resonance is like asking who advocated gravity. Both phenomena exist whether anyone agrees with them or not.

I had not heard of harmonic resonance before, so I Googled it. I found several different types of websites, some of which were pure quackery. Can you be specific about what it is that you found?

Also, was there any special reason you posted this thread in the Metaphysics and Epistemology Forum?
