John D. MacArthur Professor of Physics
University of Michigan, Department of Physics.
Research Field: Elementary Particle Theory
Research Focus: Gauge theories
Professor Veltman is one of the developers of gauge theories. He focuses on field theoretic aspects of gauge theories and their applications to elementary particle physics, radiative corrections in the Standard Model, the Higgs sector of the Standard Model and its implications for phenomenology and for new physics beyond the Standard Model, and vacuum structure of field theories.
Dirac Medallist 1996 "For his pioneering investigations on the renormalizability of gauge theories and consequently, his analysis of the sensitivity of radiative corrections to both the mass differences in fermion doublets and the Higgs particle mass".
Nobel Laureate Physics 1999, with Gerardus 't Hooft, "for elucidating the quantum structure of electroweak interactions in physics"
