Della Pietra Public Lecture by Martinus Veltman: "The Higgs Particle"
Start Date: 1/9/2014Start Time: 5:30 PM
End Date: 1/9/2014

Event Description:
Martinus J.G. Veltman began studying mathematics and physics at Utrecht University in 1948, and obtained his PhD in theoretical physics in 1963. He is widely known as one of the developers of gauge theories. His research focuses on field theoretic aspects of gauge theories and their applications to elementary particle physics, radiative corrections in the Standard Model, the Higgs sector of the Standard Model and its implications for phenomenology and for new physics beyond the Standard Model. In 1999 he shared the Nobel Prize for Physics with Gerardus ‘t Hooft, "for elucidating the quantum structure of electroweak interactions in physics."
