At Hue University, Prof. Gerard't Hooft delivered a lecture on the topic "Discovering the Universe," which attracted a large audience of students, high school students, and teachers from universities and high schools in Hue city.




Prof. Gerardus 't Hooft is a professor at Utrecht University, Netherlands. He is a theoretical physicist who was awarded the Nobel Prize in Physics in 1999 (along with Prof. Martinus Veltman) for his research on "Elucidating the Quantum Structure of Weak Interactions." His research work focuses on the standard model theory in fundamental particle physics, quantum theory in gravitational research of black holes, and quantum mechanics. He has made significant contributions to physics by demonstrating that the standard model theory can be renormalizable, proposing the dimensional regularization method, and suggesting the holographic principle for reconstructing a 3-dimensional image of the universe from 2-dimensional observed data.


He is a member of the Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and Sciences (KNAW) since 1982, becoming a professor of the Academy in 2003. He is also a member of prestigious scientific academies such as the French Academy of Sciences, the US National Academy of Sciences, the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, and the Institute of Physics in the UK and Ireland.
