Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Astronomy
  • Astrophysics
  • Galaxy

Carlos S. Frenk mainly investigates Astrophysics, Astronomy, Galaxy, Cold dark matter and Dark matter. His study involves Galaxy formation and evolution, Redshift, Dark matter halo, 2dF Galaxy Redshift Survey and Interacting galaxy, a branch of Astrophysics. His Dark matter halo study combines topics in areas such as Milky Way, Halo occupation distribution, Galactic halo and Scalar field dark matter.

As a member of one scientific family, Carlos S. Frenk mostly works in the field of Galaxy, focusing on Sky and, on occasion, Atlas, Space observatory, Point source and Completeness. His Cold dark matter study deals with Universe intersecting with Dark energy. His Dark matter research integrates issues from Halo, Halo mass function, Radius, Dwarf galaxy and Galaxy cluster.

His most cited work include:

  • A Universal Density Profile from Hierarchical Clustering (7876 citations)
  • The Structure of cold dark matter halos (6225 citations)
  • Simulations of the formation, evolution and clustering of galaxies and quasars (4013 citations)

What are the main themes of his work throughout his whole career to date?

Carlos S. Frenk mostly deals with Astrophysics, Galaxy, Astronomy, Galaxy formation and evolution and Dark matter. Astrophysics is represented through his Redshift, Cold dark matter, Halo, Milky Way and Star formation research. His Cold dark matter study incorporates themes from Warm dark matter and Universe.

His Milky Way research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Galactic halo and Dwarf galaxy. His work carried out in the field of Galaxy formation and evolution brings together such families of science as Stars, Accretion, Initial mass function and Structure formation. His research in Dark matter intersects with topics in Virial mass, Galaxy cluster, Radius, Cosmology and Velocity dispersion.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Astrophysics (94.44%)
  • Galaxy (63.27%)
  • Astronomy (46.23%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2015-2021)?

  • Astrophysics (94.44%)
  • Galaxy (63.27%)
  • Dark matter (33.84%)

In recent papers he was focusing on the following fields of study:

His primary areas of investigation include Astrophysics, Galaxy, Dark matter, Milky Way and Astronomy. His Galaxy formation and evolution, Halo, Cold dark matter, Dwarf galaxy and Dark matter halo investigations are all subjects of Astrophysics research. His studies deal with areas such as Galaxy rotation curve and Scalar field dark matter as well as Dark matter halo.

His Galaxy study frequently draws parallels with other fields, such as Stars. Carlos S. Frenk has included themes like Warm dark matter, Radius, Baryon, Sterile neutrino and Galaxy cluster in his Dark matter study. His Milky Way research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Metallicity, Galactic halo and Luminosity function.

Between 2015 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • The DESI Experiment Part I: Science,Targeting, and Survey Design (545 citations)
  • The APOSTLE simulations: solutions to the Local Group's cosmic puzzles (408 citations)
  • The EAGLE simulations of galaxy formation: Public release of halo and galaxy catalogues (282 citations)

In his most recent research, the most cited papers focused on:

  • Quantum mechanics
  • Astronomy
  • Galaxy

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Astrophysics, Astronomy, Galaxy, Dark matter and Galaxy formation and evolution. Cold dark matter, Milky Way, Dark matter halo, Halo and Dwarf galaxy are subfields of Astrophysics in which his conducts study. His Halo research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Dynamical friction, Galaxy cluster and Configuration space.

His Dark matter research incorporates elements of Hot dark matter, Cosmology, Scalar field dark matter and Sterile neutrino. His studies link Galactic halo with Galaxy formation and evolution. His study in Redshift is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Dark energy and Quasar.
