Nobel winner in city talk.
Prof 't Hooft, from the University of Utrecht in the Netherlands, received the physics prize in 1999 for revealing the quantum structure of electroweak interactions - a mathematical construction which describes two of the four fundamental interactions in nature.
The results of his work have impacted on many areas of study including the design of particle accelerators and experiments based at CERN - the European Centre for Particle Physics Research - in Switzerland.
He will discuss the ways in which science and technology continues to change living conditions and social relationships.
The lecture will take place at the Medical Institute, Mount Pleasant, at 2pm, this Friday, February 13.
