His talk, which begins at 8 p.m. in the A-10 auditorium of Jadwin Hall, is the 2001 Donald Ross Hamilton Lecture.
t' Hooft and Martinus Veltman received the Nobel Prize in 1999 for their work in providing a mathematical framework to describe the electroweak interactions between elementary particles. In addition to receiving many other prizes and honors, he has had an asteroid, 9491 Thooft, named after him.
