Sheldon Lee Glashow (born 1932), US physicist. Glashow studied at Cornell University, USA, and then received a PhD in physics from Harvard University, USA. Together with Weinberg and Salam, in the late 1960s, he proposed the initial theory of electroweak interactions, a unification of two of the fundamental forces of nature. This work won the three of them the 1979 Nobel Prize in Physics. Glashow was also part of the collaboration that predicted the existence of the charm quark, a fundamental particle. Glashow is currently (as of 2007) professor of mathematics and physics at Boston University, USA.
