    BOOK Gerard ‘t Hooft AS A SPEAKER

    Gerard ‘T Hooft’s study of theoretical physics won him a Nobel prize and inspired another team to win another. His extraordinary descriptions of quantum gravity have given us an unprecedented appreciation of black holes and other phenomena. Events that celebrate the true pioneering spirit of scientific investigation book ‘T Hooft for mind-expanding keynote addresses.

    Gerard ‘t Hooft Speaker Biography

    Science speaker Gerard ‘T Hooft won a Nobel Prize for his work on quantum physics. A celebrated lecturer and distinguished keynote speaker, Gerard ‘T Hooft delivers insights gleaned from a lifetime of keen observation.

    Gerard ‘T Hooft is Distinguished Professor at Utrecht University and one of the world’s most innovative theoretical physicists. He shared the 1999 Nobel Prize in Physics for his description of “the quantum structure of electroweak interactions.”

    ‘T Hooft is especially noted for his work with gauge theory, an area of field theory with special consequences for the study of black holes and quantum gravity. He has proven that gauge theories are renormalizable, explored dimensional regularization, and established the holographic principle.

    After earning his doctorate from Utrecht University, ‘T Hooft joined CERN as a fellow. There, he conducted pioneering research that later earned another team the 2004 Nobel Prize in Physics. ‘T Hooft returned to Utrecht in 1974 before spending two years as a lecturer at Stanford and Harvard Universities.

    ‘T Hooft returned once more to Utrecht University, this time as a full professor. He was named Distinguished Professor at Utrecht in 2011. From 2007 to 2016, he served as editor in chief of the prestigious journal Foundations of Physics.

    When asteroid 9491 was named in his honor, ‘T Hooft wrote a constitution for its future residents. Prior to his Nobel recognition, ‘T Hooft won the Wolf Prize, second in prestige among physicists only to the Nobel. He has also received the Lorenz Medal for contributions to theoretical physics and the Netherlands’ highest scientific honor, the Spinozapremie. He is a commander of the Order of the Netherlands Lion and an officer of the French Legion of Honor. ‘T Hooft is a member of the leading scientific academies in France, the UK, and the United States.

    Gerard ‘t Hooft Keynote Topics

    Quantum theory claims that reality is fundamentally uncertain and unknowable - but have we given in too easily?

    Nobel Prize-winner Gerard 't Hooft claims the strangeness we now believe in hides a simpler underlying reality. Gerard 't Hooft is a Dutch theoretical physicist and professor at Utrecht University, the Netherlands. He is winner of the 1999 Nobel Prize in Physics for his work on the quantum structure.

    According to quantum physics, the observer is critical to reality. Is a world independent of the observer an illusion? Or did Heisenberg and quantum physics get it wrong? Nobel Prize winning physicist Gerard ‘t Hooft, will debate our role in reality in this fascinating talk.

    Gerardus 't Hooft is a theoretical physicist and professor at Utrecht University, the Netherlands. He shared the 1999 Nobel Prize in Physics with his thesis advisor Martinus J. G. Veltman "for elucidating the quantum structure of electroweak interactions".

    The theoretical physicist and Nobel Prize winner in Physics, Gerard 't Hooft, will amaze your audience in this talk about quantum physics, black holes and why it is essential to instill a passion for education and science in students to solve the mysteries of the universe.
