Martinus Justinus Godefriedus Veltman is a Dutch theoretical physicist, known for his work on renormalization of Yang–Mills theories. Born in early 1930s in the ancient city of Waalwijk in Southern Netherland, he passed out from school with very low grades and then entered the University of Utrecht with Physics because medium level technical schools would not accept him. The scenario at Utrecht was also equally bad; there was no good teacher and the lectures were uninspiring. Ultimately, he took five years to clear his candidaats exam and after spending few years doing petty jobs, he finally earned his PhD at the age of thirty-two. In the same year he joined SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory at Stanford and developed a computer program for symbolic manipulation of mathematical equations called Schoonschip. Much later, while working at the University of Utrecht with his graduate student Gerardus ’t Hooft, he used this program to provide the required mathematical basis for the electroweak theory. The work later earned them the Nobel Prize in Physics. Although he spent the last part of his working life at the University of Michigan he came to Netherland after his retirement and now lives at Bilthoven.
