His primary areas of investigation include Quantum mechanics, Classical mechanics, Scaling, Statistical physics and Statistical mechanics. His study connects Mathematical physics and Quantum mechanics. While the research belongs to areas of Classical mechanics, he spends his time largely on the problem of Quantum statistical mechanics, intersecting his research to questions surrounding Quantum dynamics and Fermi liquid theory.

His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Twist, Turbulent heat, Multifractal system and Convective turbulence. As part of the same scientific family, Leo P. Kadanoff usually focuses on Multifractal system, concentrating on Attractor and intersecting with Gravitational singularity. His Statistical physics research integrates issues from Phase transition, Conjecture, Scaling law, Mean field theory and Coherence length.

Leo P. Kadanoff mainly investigates Statistical physics, Scaling, Mathematical analysis, Classical mechanics and Theoretical physics. His research on Statistical physics focuses in particular on Statistical mechanics. The various areas that he examines in his Scaling study include Universality, Conserved quantity and Multifractal system.

His Mathematical analysis course of study focuses on Eigenvalues and eigenvectors and Ising model and Spectrum. His work in Theoretical physics addresses subjects such as Renormalization group, which are connected to disciplines such as Fixed point. His Gravitational singularity study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Singularity and Fractal.

- Scaling (14.48%)
- Mathematical analysis (13.45%)

- Theoretical physics (11.72%)
- Statistical physics (23.45%)
- Toeplitz matrix (4.48%)

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Theoretical physics, Statistical physics, Toeplitz matrix, Renormalization and Eigenvalues and eigenvectors. In his study, Entropy is strongly linked to Entropy in thermodynamics and information theory, which falls under the umbrella field of Statistical physics. Leo P. Kadanoff interconnects Statistical mechanics, Renormalization group, Universality and Singularity in the investigation of issues within Renormalization.

His Statistical mechanics research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Phase transition, Critical exponent and Critical dimension. His study in Singularity is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Breakup, Gravitational singularity, Electric field, Group theory and Scaling. His Mathematical analysis study deals with Imaginary time intersecting with Classical mechanics.
