Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Galaxy
  • Astronomy
  • Milky Way

Duncan A. Forbes mainly focuses on Astrophysics, Astronomy, Galaxy, Globular cluster and Elliptical galaxy. Astrophysics is represented through his Metallicity, Lenticular galaxy, Galaxy formation and evolution, Galaxy cluster and Brightest cluster galaxy research. His Astronomy research focuses on Luminous infrared galaxy, Galaxy group, Galaxy merger, Dwarf galaxy and Milky Way.

Galaxy is closely attributed to Stars in his work. His Globular cluster study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Compact star, Stellar kinematics, Bulge, Star cluster and Velocity dispersion. His work in Elliptical galaxy is not limited to one particular discipline; it also encompasses Radio galaxy.

His most cited work include:

  • The WiggleZ Dark Energy Survey: survey design and first data release (405 citations)
  • Properties of Globular Cluster Systems in Nearby Early-Type Galaxies (373 citations)
  • On the origin of globular clusters in elliptical and cD galaxies (339 citations)

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

Duncan A. Forbes mostly deals with Astrophysics, Galaxy, Astronomy, Globular cluster and Elliptical galaxy. Star formation, Lenticular galaxy, Dwarf galaxy, Metallicity and Star cluster are subfields of Astrophysics in which his conducts study. The study incorporates disciplines such as Interacting galaxy and Disc galaxy in addition to Lenticular galaxy.

Galaxy formation and evolution, Stellar population, Velocity dispersion, Luminosity and Redshift are the core of his Galaxy study. His study in Galaxy cluster, Brightest cluster galaxy, Luminous infrared galaxy, Galaxy group and Galaxy merger falls within the category of Astronomy. The concepts of his Globular cluster study are interwoven with issues in Milky Way, Halo, Hubble sequence and Open cluster.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Astrophysics (91.93%)
  • Galaxy (66.77%)
  • Astronomy (55.59%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2014-2021)?

  • Astrophysics (91.93%)
  • Galaxy (66.77%)
  • Globular cluster (45.65%)

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

Astrophysics, Galaxy, Globular cluster, Astronomy and Stellar mass are his primary areas of study. His study in Astrophysics concentrates on Dwarf galaxy, Elliptical galaxy, Halo, Lenticular galaxy and Velocity dispersion. His research investigates the connection between Lenticular galaxy and topics such as Brightest cluster galaxy that intersect with problems in Galaxy merger.

His Galaxy study frequently involves adjacent topics like Dark matter. Duncan A. Forbes works mostly in the field of Globular cluster, limiting it down to topics relating to Metallicity and, in certain cases, Satellite galaxy, as a part of the same area of interest. His work on Luminous infrared galaxy as part of general Astronomy study is frequently connected to Geology, therefore bridging the gap between diverse disciplines of science and establishing a new relationship between them.

Between 2014 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Discovery of an ultra-diffuse galaxy in the Pisces-Perseus supercluster (102 citations)
  • Discovery of an ultra-diffuse galaxy in the pisces-perseus supercluster (101 citations)
  • The stellar accretion origin of stellar population gradients in massive galaxies at large radii (92 citations)
