John Kormendy mainly focuses on Astrophysics, Astronomy, Galaxy, Elliptical galaxy and Bulge. His work is connected to Galaxy merger, Supermassive black hole, Lenticular galaxy, Velocity dispersion and M–sigma relation, as a part of Astrophysics. His Galaxy merger research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Galaxy group and Interacting galaxy.
Galaxy formation and evolution and Brightest cluster galaxy are among the areas of Astronomy where John Kormendy concentrates his study. His study in Galaxy is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Cosmology and Black hole. His Elliptical galaxy research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Accretion and Luminous infrared galaxy.
His primary areas of investigation include Astrophysics, Galaxy, Astronomy, Bulge and Elliptical galaxy. His research related to Velocity dispersion, Supermassive black hole, Black hole, Galaxy formation and evolution and Stars might be considered part of Astrophysics. He interconnects Quasar and Active galactic nucleus in the investigation of issues within Supermassive black hole.
His Galaxy study incorporates themes from Brightness and Dark matter. His Lenticular galaxy, Luminous infrared galaxy, Galaxy merger, Hubble sequence and Interacting galaxy study are his primary interests in Astronomy. His Bulge study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Dust lane, Radial velocity, Milky Way, Photometry and Spiral galaxy.
John Kormendy mainly investigates Astrophysics, Galaxy, Bulge, Astronomy and Elliptical galaxy. His study in Supermassive black hole, Velocity dispersion, Galaxy formation and evolution, Black hole and Galaxy merger falls within the category of Astrophysics. In the field of Supermassive black hole, his study on Intermediate-mass black hole overlaps with subjects such as Coevolution.
The concepts of his Galaxy merger study are interwoven with issues in Lenticular galaxy and Interacting galaxy. John Kormendy usually deals with Galaxy and limits it to topics linked to Dark matter and Galaxy rotation curve. His Bulge research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Milky Way and Kinematics.
