Nobel Prize-winning physicist Gerard 't Hooft, professor of physics at Utrecht University in the Netherlands, is widely regarded as one of the most important theoretical physicists working today.

He will speak on the Standard Model of particle physics, a theory he co-developed in the 1970s with Martinus J.G. Veltman. They shared the 1999 Nobel Prize in Physics for the work.

The Llewellyn G. Hoxton lecture honors the late professor who chaired the University of Virginia physics department from 1907 to 1948. Throughout those years, Hoxton made it a priority to convey to students the excitement of new developments in physics.

The lecture is free and open to the public. Parking is available behind the chemistry and physics buildings and in the football stadium lots.
