ABSTRACT
Schwartz, Melvin (1932-) is an American physicist. He won the 1988 Nobel Prize in physics for his work on subatomic particles called neutrinos. A subatomic particle is a unit of matter smaller than an atom. Schwartz shared the prize with his research partners, the American physicists Leon Max Lederman and Jack Steinberger.
