The lagging of an effect behind its cause, as when the change in magnetism of a body lags behind changes in the magnetic field.

[Greek husterēsis, a shortcoming, from husterein, to come late, from husteros, late; see ud- in Indo-European roots.]

hysteresis

(ˌhɪstəˈriːsɪs)
n
(General Physics) physics the lag in a variable property of a system with respect to the effect producing it as this effect varies, esp the phenomenon in which the magnetic flux density of a ferromagnetic material lags behind the changing external magnetic field strength
[C19: from Greek husterēsis coming late, from husteros coming after]
