Martinus Veltman (b.1931), Dutch physicist. Veltman is best known for his pioneering work in theoretical physics. This is a branch of physics that uses mathematical models and physical abstractions (extrapolating from specific cases to general ones) in an attempt to explain phenomena. Veltman was awarded the 1999 Nobel Prize in Physics (shared with former student Gerardus 't Hooft) for his work.
