Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Galaxy
  • Astronomy
  • Astrophysics

Astrophysics, Galaxy, Redshift, Astronomy and Galaxy formation and evolution are his primary areas of study. All of his Astrophysics and Stellar mass, Photometry, Luminosity, Active galactic nucleus and Stars investigations are sub-components of the entire Astrophysics study. His Stellar mass research includes elements of Billion years and Spiral galaxy.

H. J. McCracken interconnects Infrared and Galaxy cluster in the investigation of issues within Luminosity. H. J. McCracken has included themes like Spectral line, Universe and Dark matter in his Galaxy study. His Redshift research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Cosmology, Magnitude and Sigma.

His most cited work include:

  • Mass and environment as drivers of galaxy evolution in SDSS and zCOSMOS and the origin of the Schechter function (1450 citations)
  • Mass and environment as drivers of galaxy evolution in SDSS and zCOSMOS and the origin of the Schechter function (1431 citations)
  • Accurate photometric redshifts for the CFHT legacy survey calibrated using the VIMOS VLT deep survey (1225 citations)

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

His scientific interests lie mostly in Astrophysics, Galaxy, Redshift, Astronomy and Star formation. Stellar mass, Galaxy formation and evolution, Luminosity, Redshift survey and Active galactic nucleus are the subjects of his Astrophysics studies. His Luminosity function study, which is part of a larger body of work in Galaxy, is frequently linked to Field, bridging the gap between disciplines.

His Redshift study combines topics in areas such as Cosmology, Spectral energy distribution, Universe and Magnitude. Astronomy is a component of his Luminous infrared galaxy, Elliptical galaxy, Galaxy group, Lenticular galaxy and Galaxy merger studies. The various areas that he examines in his Lenticular galaxy study include Interacting galaxy and Brightest cluster galaxy.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Astrophysics (95.04%)
  • Galaxy (83.57%)
  • Redshift (65.44%)

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

  • Astrophysics (95.04%)
  • Galaxy (83.57%)
  • Redshift (65.44%)

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

H. J. McCracken spends much of his time researching Astrophysics, Galaxy, Redshift, Astronomy and Star formation. His study in Redshift survey, Luminosity, Active galactic nucleus, Stars and COSMIC cancer database is carried out as part of his Astrophysics studies. His work carried out in the field of Luminosity brings together such families of science as Correlation function and Jansky.

His Galaxy research focuses on Dark matter and how it connects with Galaxy group. His study in the fields of Photometric redshift under the domain of Redshift overlaps with other disciplines such as Field. His Star formation study which covers Accretion that intersects with Interstellar medium.

Between 2014 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • The COSMOS2015 Catalog: Exploring the 1 < z < 6 Universe with Half a Million Galaxies (675 citations)
  • ISM MASSES AND THE STAR FORMATION LAW AT Z = 1 TO 6: ALMA OBSERVATIONS OF DUST CONTINUUM IN 145 GALAXIES IN THE COSMOS SURVEY FIELD (353 citations)
  • Evolution of interstellar medium, star formation, and accretion at high redshift (206 citations)

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

  • Galaxy
  • Astronomy
  • Astrophysics

H. J. McCracken spends much of his time researching Astrophysics, Galaxy, Redshift, Astronomy and Star formation. His study explores the link between Astrophysics and topics such as Lambda that cross with problems in Near-infrared spectroscopy. In Galaxy, H. J. McCracken works on issues like Dark matter, which are connected to Halo and Initial mass function.

The study incorporates disciplines such as Very Large Telescope, Universe, Sigma and Photometry in addition to Redshift. His work deals with themes such as Accretion and Physical cosmology, which intersect with Star formation. Within one scientific family, H. J. McCracken focuses on topics pertaining to Metallicity under Galaxy formation and evolution, and may sometimes address concerns connected to Extinction.
