(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]
