This chapter focuses on Salam's research in physics. Throughout his research, Salam sought for patterns, similarities in behaviour between subnuclear particles that were superficially very dissimilar. His approach contrasted with that of many of his contemporaries, who viewed categories of particles essentially as items on a menu where the particle masses were marked like prices, with the lightest ones at the top of each category and therefore the most familiar, and the heaviest, of interest only to connoisseurs, relegated to obscurity at the bottom. His collaboration with Jogesh Pati in the study of quarks is discussed.

Keywords:   Abdus Salam, physics, quarks, subnuclear particles, Jogesh Pati
