Glashow, Sheldon Lee

(glăsh`ō), 1932–, American physicist, b. New York City, Ph.D. Harvard, 1959. He became a professor at the Univ. of California at Berkeley in 1961 before moving to Harvard in 1967. He helped develop important theories of electromagnetic and nuclear particle interaction that affected subsequent research on quarks and leptons. In 1979, Glashow shared the Nobel Prize in Physics with Abdus SalamSalam, Abdus,
1926–96, Pakistani physicist. After attending Government College at Lahore, he received a Ph.D. from Cambridge (1952). He taught in Lahore for three years before returning to England, first teaching mathematics at Cambridge (1954–57), then moving to

Without him there would have been no discovery," said Sheldon Glashow, a Nobel Prize-winning theorist now at Boston University.
Electromagnetic and weak forces were unified at high energy level by Abdus Salam, Glashow and Weinberg in early 1970s and they were jointly awarded Nobel Prize for this work in 1979.

In the 1960s, by prominent American Sheldon Lee Glashow (born 1932), Steven Weinberg (1933-1996) and Pakistani Abdus Salam (1926-1996) theoretical physicists, quantum theory of weak and electromagnetic interactions in microcosm has been developed using the principle of gauge invariance [22].
In the middle volume of a three-volume set of textbooks for a series of courses that replaced the traditional course of theoretical physics, Maiani illustrates the conceptual route that led to the unification of the weak and electromagnetic interactions, starting from the identification of the weak hadronic current with the isotopic spin current; through the conserved vector current hypothesis of Fenman, Gell-Mann, and others; to Yang-Mills theory and to the first electroweak theory of Glashow.
