John G. Kirkwood mainly investigates Thermodynamics, Classical mechanics, Molecule, Statistical mechanics and General theory. His study ties his expertise on Intrinsic viscosity together with the subject of Thermodynamics. His Classical mechanics research includes themes of Molecular physics, Pair distribution function, Optical anisotropy and Intermolecular force.

His studies deal with areas such as Compressibility, Molality, Local field and Dielectric as well as Molecule. He has included themes like Distribution function, Free energy perturbation, Equations of motion and Fokker–Planck equation in his Statistical mechanics study. The Partition function research John G. Kirkwood does as part of his general Statistical physics study is frequently linked to other disciplines of science, such as Radial distribution and Osmotic pressure, therefore creating a link between diverse domains of science.

John G. Kirkwood mostly deals with Classical mechanics, Statistical mechanics, Thermodynamics, Distribution function and Statistical physics. John G. Kirkwood combines subjects such as Flow, Intrinsic viscosity, Partial differential equation, Transport phenomena and Viscoelasticity with his study of Classical mechanics. In his research, Diffusion equation, Non-equilibrium thermodynamics, Brownian motion and Flow birefringence is intimately related to Perturbation, which falls under the overarching field of Statistical mechanics.

His Thermodynamics study combines topics in areas such as Steady state and Intermolecular force. His research integrates issues of Thermal conductivity, Cauchy stress tensor and Phase space in his study of Distribution function. His studies in Statistical physics integrate themes in fields like Quantum statistical mechanics, Classical limit and Fermi gas.
