Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Astronomy
  • Galaxy
  • Astrophysics

Astrophysics, Astronomy, Galaxy, Elliptical galaxy and Dwarf galaxy are his primary areas of study. His Astrophysics study focuses mostly on Globular cluster, Star formation, Galaxy merger, Lenticular galaxy and Stars. His work in the fields of Star formation, such as Ram pressure, overlaps with other areas such as Tomography.

His Stars research includes themes of Ejecta, Planck and Optical depth. His research related to Star cluster, Galaxy cluster, Galactic halo, Brightest cluster galaxy and Small Magellanic Cloud might be considered part of Astronomy. His studies in Elliptical galaxy integrate themes in fields like Luminosity, Bulge and Velocity dispersion.

His most cited work include:

  • Passive Spiral Formation from Halo Gas Starvation: Gradual Transformation into S0s (306 citations)
  • Formation of ω Centauri from an ancient nucleated dwarf galaxy in the young Galactic disc (303 citations)
  • Passive spiral formation from halo gas starvation: Gradual transformation into S0s (298 citations)

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

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Astrophysics, Galaxy, Astronomy, Stars and Star formation. His is involved in several facets of Astrophysics study, as is seen by his studies on Globular cluster, Elliptical galaxy, Dwarf galaxy, Galaxy merger and Star cluster. His study explores the link between Globular cluster and topics such as Dark matter that cross with problems in Dark matter halo.

The Elliptical galaxy study combines topics in areas such as Radio galaxy and Bulge. Galaxy cluster, Lenticular galaxy, Interacting galaxy, Luminous infrared galaxy and Galaxy group are subfields of Astronomy in which his conducts study. His Star formation study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Accretion, Extinction, Luminosity, Interstellar medium and Spiral galaxy.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Astrophysics (98.78%)
  • Galaxy (66.06%)
  • Astronomy (47.15%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2016-2021)?

  • Astrophysics (98.78%)
  • Galaxy (66.06%)
  • Stars (30.89%)

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

His main research concerns Astrophysics, Galaxy, Stars, Star formation and Globular cluster. His research on Astrophysics often connects related topics like Astronomy. His work on Stellar mass, Galaxy formation and evolution, Spiral galaxy and Bulge as part of general Galaxy study is frequently connected to Artificial intelligence, therefore bridging the gap between diverse disciplines of science and establishing a new relationship between them.

His work on Molecular cloud, Proper motion and Red clump as part of general Stars study is frequently linked to Log-normal distribution, therefore connecting diverse disciplines of science. His work carried out in the field of Star formation brings together such families of science as Solar mass, Supernova, Extinction, Interstellar medium and Star cluster. The concepts of his Globular cluster study are interwoven with issues in Asymptotic giant branch, Planetary nebula, Initial mass function and Dark matter.

Between 2016 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Formation of the Young Massive Cluster R136 triggered by Tidally-driven Colliding HI Flows (80 citations)
  • Formation of the young massive cluster R136 triggered by tidally-driven colliding H i flows (78 citations)
  • The VMC survey – XXV. The 3D structure of the Small Magellanic Cloud from Classical Cepheids (73 citations)

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

  • Galaxy
  • Astronomy
  • Astrophysics

Kenji Bekki mainly investigates Astrophysics, Galaxy, Star formation, Stars and Astronomy. Globular cluster, Supernova, Large Magellanic Cloud, Stellar rotation and Redshift are the primary areas of interest in his Astrophysics study. His Globular cluster study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Asymptotic giant branch, Initial mass function and Dwarf galaxy.

His Galaxy research focuses on Sky and how it relates to Proper motion. His studies deal with areas such as Solar mass, Extinction, Interstellar medium, Star cluster and r-process as well as Star formation. In general Stars, his work in Small Magellanic Cloud and Bulge is often linked to Fractal dimension linking many areas of study.
