Standard Model symposium in Cleveland draws 6 Nobel winners

(Case Western Reserve University) A half dozen winners of the Nobel Prize for Physics are expected on Cleveland's Case Western Reserve University campus June 1-4 for a symposium marking the 50th anniversary of the Standard Model of Physics, which coalesced in 1967-68 and gradually became accepted as the best explanation of all matter and how it holds together. The list includes Nobel laureate Steven Weinberg, whose 1967 paper, "A Model of Leptons," is considered a cornerstone of the model.
