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

David Ruelle mainly investigates Statistical mechanics, Statistical physics, Combinatorics, Turbulence and Mathematical physics. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Analytic function, Non-equilibrium thermodynamics, Fluctuation theorem, Theoretical physics and Classical mechanics. Specifically, his work in Statistical physics is concerned with the study of Nonequilibrium statistical mechanics.

His Combinatorics research focuses on Expectation value and how it connects with Mathematical analysis. David Ruelle has researched Turbulence in several fields, including Thermal fluctuations and Degrees of freedom. The concepts of his Dynamical system study are interwoven with issues in Dynamical systems theory and Attractor.

Between 2008 and 2020, his most popular works were:

  • A review of linear response theory for general differentiable dynamical systems (196 citations)
  • Characterization of Lee-Yang polynomials (38 citations)
  • Structure and f -Dependence of the A.C.I.M. for a Unimodal Map f of Misiurewicz Type (38 citations)

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

  • Quantum mechanics
  • Mathematical analysis
  • Algebra

His primary areas of investigation include Complex system, Statistical mechanics, Nonequilibrium statistical mechanics, Central limit theorem and Mathematical analysis. His Complex system study combines topics in areas such as Quantum critical point, Quantum phase transition and Condensed matter physics, Ferromagnetism. His research in Statistical mechanics intersects with topics in Dynamical systems theory, Dynamical system, Non-equilibrium thermodynamics, Turbulence and Degrees of freedom.

His Turbulence research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Mechanical system and Statistical physics. He has included themes like Chain, First order perturbation, Fourier transform, Kinetic energy and Thermal conduction in his Nonequilibrium statistical mechanics study. In his work, Phase transition is strongly intertwined with Spins, which is a subfield of Mathematical analysis.
