ABSTRACT
Salam, Abdus (1926-1996) was a Pakistani physicist. He won a share of the 1979 Nobel Prize in physics for his contributions in developing a theory that unifies the weak nuclear force within atoms and the force of electromagnetism. He was the first Pakistani and the first Muslim to win a Nobel Prize. Salam shared the prize with American physicists Sheldon Lee Glashow and Steven Weinberg, who each independently did similar work.
