On Tuesday 17 October at 16:30, physicist Steven Weinberg will give a lecture that will be livestreamed to ICTP and the world to mark the 50th anniversary of his 1967 paper, “A Model of Leptons”. In his lecture, which is titled "Reminiscences of the Standard Model", Weinberg will describe the path that led him to the electroweak theory of Salam and himself, and what happened afterwards.
The livestream will be shown in ICTP's Budinich Lecture Hall in the Leonardo Building. It also will be available online at ictp.it/livestream (ICTP's YouTube channel), or on ICTP's Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/ictp.page/?ref=ts). Viewers watching the livestream on ICTP's YouTube channel and on Facebook will be able to submit questions online; a selection of those questions will be presented to Professor Weinberg at the end of his lecture.
Weinberg's paper, in which he presented his work on the unification of weak and electromagnetic interactions, played a seminal role in the development of the Standard Model of particle physics. Together with ICTP founder Abdus Salam and Sheldon Glashow, Weinberg won the 1979 Nobel Prize in Physics for contributions to the theory of the unified weak and electromagnetic interaction between elementary particles.
More details about the event can be found here.
Light refreshments will be served after the event.
Looking forward to seeing you all on Tuesday 17 October 2017 at 16.30 hrs.
