Sheldon Glashow discovered method to combine weak and electromagnetic forces
Steven Weinberg and Abdus Salam incorperate the Higgs Mechanism into Glashow's previous work, giving the modern form of the standard model
The term first coined by Abraham Pais and Sam Treiman
Glashow, Pais and Weinberg win the Nobel Prize for discovering the 'electroweak theory', after the discovery of neutral weak currents.
