Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Galaxy
  • Astronomy
  • Astrophysics

Ian G. McCarthy mainly focuses on Astrophysics, Galaxy, Astronomy, Galaxy formation and evolution and Galaxy cluster. His Astrophysics study is mostly concerned with Star formation, Elliptical galaxy, Galaxy group, Stellar mass and Disc galaxy. His Star formation research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Accretion, Surface brightness and Smoothed-particle hydrodynamics.

His Galaxy research incorporates themes from Dark energy and Dark matter. As a member of one scientific family, Ian G. McCarthy mostly works in the field of Galaxy formation and evolution, focusing on Dark matter halo and, on occasion, Galaxy rotation curve. Ian G. McCarthy is interested in Galaxy groups and clusters, which is a field of Galaxy cluster.

His most cited work include:

  • The EAGLE project: Simulating the evolution and assembly of galaxies and their environments (1954 citations)
  • The EAGLE simulations of galaxy formation: calibration of subgrid physics and model variations (741 citations)
  • The physics driving the cosmic star formation history (669 citations)

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

Astrophysics, Galaxy, Astronomy, Galaxy cluster and Dark matter are his primary areas of study. His study in Astrophysics concentrates on Halo, Galaxy formation and evolution, Star formation, Redshift and Galaxy groups and clusters. Elliptical galaxy, Galaxy group, Lenticular galaxy, Interacting galaxy and Disc galaxy are the core of his Astronomy study.

His research in Lenticular galaxy tackles topics such as Galaxy merger which are related to areas like Galaxy rotation curve. His Galaxy cluster research focuses on Cosmic microwave background and how it connects with Planck. His Dark matter study combines topics in areas such as Stars, Baryon, Cosmology, Weak gravitational lensing and Gravitation.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Astrophysics (106.09%)
  • Galaxy (51.74%)
  • Astronomy (42.61%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2018-2021)?

  • Astrophysics (106.09%)
  • Galaxy (51.74%)
  • Dark matter (32.17%)

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

Ian G. McCarthy mainly investigates Astrophysics, Galaxy, Dark matter, Halo and Baryon. His study in Weak gravitational lensing, Star formation, Redshift, Galaxy formation and evolution and Galaxy cluster is carried out as part of his studies in Astrophysics. His Galaxy study introduces a deeper knowledge of Astronomy.

His Dark matter study also includes fields such as

  • Self-interacting dark matter that intertwine with fields like Astroparticle physics, Brightest cluster galaxy, Dwarf galaxy and Cold dark matter,
  • Spectral line which is related to area like Quasar,
  • Cosmic variance that intertwine with fields like Galaxy group. His Halo research focuses on Galaxy groups and clusters and how it relates to Sigma. Ian G. McCarthy interconnects Neutrino and Cosmic microwave background in the investigation of issues within Baryon.

Between 2018 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • A Search for Warm/Hot Gas Filaments Between Pairs of SDSS Luminous Red Galaxies (89 citations)
  • Modelling baryonic feedback for survey cosmology (44 citations)
  • Observable tests of self-interacting dark matter in galaxy clusters : BCG wobbles in a constant density core. (44 citations)

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

  • Galaxy
  • Astronomy
  • Astrophysics

Ian G. McCarthy spends much of his time researching Astrophysics, Halo, Galaxy, Dark matter and Redshift. His study in Star formation, Weak gravitational lensing, Galaxy cluster and Gravitational lens is done as part of Astrophysics. His studies in Star formation integrate themes in fields like Dark matter halo and Active galactic nucleus.

His work investigates the relationship between Galaxy cluster and topics such as Self-interacting dark matter that intersect with problems in Brightest cluster galaxy, Dwarf galaxy and Cold dark matter. The concepts of his Halo study are interwoven with issues in Radius and Monte Carlo method. His research integrates issues of Cosmology, Galaxy groups and clusters, Galaxy formation and evolution and Sigma in his study of Redshift.
