Higgins Professor of Physics, Emeritus, at the Lyman Laboratory, Depatment of Physics, Harvard University, Cambridge, MA., USA.

Research interests

Sheldon Glashow's research involves many aspects of particle theory, cosmology, and (from a pedagogical stance) classical mechanics. A. Cohen (BU), A. De Rujula (CERN) and Glashow are completing A Matter-antimatter universe? showing the visible universe cannot contain comparable amounts of matter and antimatter. S. Coleman and Glashow have analyzed possible departures from Lorentz invariance and deduced new experimental bounds on such effects ("Cosmic-ray and particle-physics tests of special relativity," PL, in press; and more to come). L. Mittag and Glashow study impact phenomena ("Three rods on a ring and the triangular billiard," J. of Stat. Phys., in press; and The physics of billiards, a partially completed book). Other recent papers include "Cabibbo mixing and the search for CP violation," with P. Frampton, PRD 55, 1691 (1997), and "Decays of a leptophobic gauge boson," with H. Georgi, PL 387, 341 (1996).

Prizes and awards

1979 Nobel Laureate in Physics, with Abdus Salam and Steven Weinberg, "for their contributions to the theory of the unified weak and electromagnetic interaction between elementary particles, including inter alia the prediction of the weak neutral current."
