Glashow, Sheldon Lee (1932–)
American physicist who shared the 1979 Nobel Prize in Physics with Abdus
Salam and Steven Weinberg
for their theoretical work in describing the electroweak
force – a unification of the weak
force and electromagnetism.
He also proposed that quarks make up particles
that interact via the strong force. Glashow attended Cornell and Harvard,
and joined the Harvard faculty in 1966.
