1963 - Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS)

- Quantum mechanics
- General relativity
- Classical mechanics

Hamiltonian, Classical mechanics, Mathematical physics, General relativity and Regularization are his primary areas of study. His work deals with themes such as Conservation law, Equations of motion and Kinetic energy, which intersect with Hamiltonian. His work in the fields of Classical mechanics, such as Gravitational field and Newtonian fluid, intersects with other areas such as Harmonic coordinates.

His work in Mathematical physics tackles topics such as Gravitation which are related to areas like Orbit equation, Cauchy stress tensor and Astrophysics. Gerhard Schäfer has included themes like Differential geometry and Curvilinear coordinates in his General relativity study. His Quantum mechanics research focuses on Circular orbit and how it relates to Neutron star.

- Determination of the last stable orbit for circular general relativistic binaries at the third post-Newtonian approximation (228 citations)
- Dimensional regularization of the gravitational interaction of point masses (222 citations)
- The Cassini Cosmic Dust Analyzer (194 citations)

Gerhard Schäfer mainly investigates Classical mechanics, Gravitational wave, Hamiltonian, Mathematical physics and General relativity. Classical mechanics is frequently linked to Binary black hole in his study. His Gravitational wave study is concerned with the larger field of Astrophysics.

His research in the fields of Covariant Hamiltonian field theory overlaps with other disciplines such as Formalism. His Mathematical physics research includes themes of Gravitation and Effective field theory. His research integrates issues of Tetrad and Spacetime in his study of General relativity.

His primary areas of study are Hamiltonian, Classical mechanics, Mathematical physics, Newtonian fluid and General relativity. His Hamiltonian study frequently draws connections to adjacent fields such as Dirac delta function. His studies in Mathematical physics integrate themes in fields like Gravitation, Conservation law, Binary black hole and Effective field theory.

His research investigates the link between Newtonian fluid and topics such as Circular orbit that cross with problems in Angular frequency and Point particle. His General relativity research incorporates themes from Newtonian dynamics and Tetrad. His study in Theoretical physics is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Spacetime, Equations of motion and Spin-½.

Gerhard Schäfer mostly deals with Hamiltonian, Mathematical physics, Classical mechanics, Effective field theory and Conservation law. His Hamiltonian research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in General relativity, Newtonian fluid and Dirac delta function. His Mathematical physics study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Quantum mechanics, Angular momentum and Total angular momentum quantum number.

His research integrates issues of Poincaré conjecture and Angular frequency in his study of Classical mechanics. His Poincaré conjecture study incorporates themes from Spacetime, Equations of motion and Many-body problem. His studies examine the connections between Conservation law and genetics, as well as such issues in Regularization, with regards to Gravitation and Piecewise.
