Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Operating system
  • Database
  • Programming language

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Sky, Astrophysics, Quasar, Database and Redshift. His study explores the link between Sky and topics such as Photometry that cross with problems in Remote sensing. His study in Astrophysics focuses on Galaxy in particular.

Many of his studies on Quasar apply to Stars as well. His studies in Transaction processing, Database transaction, Distributed transaction, SQL and Database design are all subfields of Database research. His Redshift study deals with Cosmology intersecting with Emission spectrum, Spectral resolution, Spectral density and Baryon.

His most cited work include:

  • Transaction Processing: Concepts and Techniques (2743 citations)
  • Sloan digital sky survey: Early data release (2156 citations)
  • Data cube: a relational aggregation operator generalizing GROUP-BY, CROSS-TAB, and SUB-TOTALS (2110 citations)

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

Jim Gray spends much of his time researching Database, Sky, World Wide Web, SQL and Data science. His research in Database tackles topics such as Terabyte which are related to areas like Software. His Sky study focuses on Astrophysics and Astronomy.

His work on Astrophysics deals in particular with Quasar, Redshift and Galaxy. His Quasar study frequently draws connections between adjacent fields such as Stars. His work is dedicated to discovering how Data science, Data access are connected with Metadata and Cluster analysis and other disciplines.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Database (31.83%)
  • Sky (12.80%)
  • World Wide Web (9.69%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2007-2016)?

  • Astronomy (7.27%)
  • Quasar (6.23%)
  • Redshift (5.88%)

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

His primary scientific interests are in Astronomy, Quasar, Redshift, Astrophysics and Sky. His study in the field of Astronomical spectroscopy, White dwarf and Galaxy also crosses realms of Near-Earth object and Galactic halo. His Redshift study incorporates themes from Cosmology, Spectral resolution, Emission spectrum and Photometry.

His Cosmology study frequently draws connections to adjacent fields such as Data release. His Astrophysics and Stars and Horizontal branch investigations all form part of his Astrophysics research activities. His Sky research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Grid, Blueprint, Data science and Taxonomy.

Between 2007 and 2016, his most popular works were:

  • The Sixth Data Release of the Sloan Digital Sky Survey (1361 citations)
  • The sloan digital sky survey quasar catalog. - V. Seventh data release (958 citations)
  • The Sloan Digital Sky Survey Quasar Catalog V. Seventh Data Release (950 citations)
