- Quantum field theory
- General relativity

Leonard Susskind mainly focuses on Theoretical physics, Black hole, Classical mechanics, Mathematical physics and String theory. His Theoretical physics study combines topics in areas such as Supersymmetry, Spacetime and Quantum mechanics. Basis, State, Action, Order of magnitude and Tensor is closely connected to Quantum in his research, which is encompassed under the umbrella topic of Black hole.

His study explores the link between Classical mechanics and topics such as Causal patch that cross with problems in de Sitter invariant special relativity. His work on Gauge theory as part of general Mathematical physics study is frequently connected to Duality, therefore bridging the gap between diverse disciplines of science and establishing a new relationship between them. His study in String theory is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Quantum gravity, COSMIC cancer database and Holographic principle.

- M theory as a matrix model: A conjecture (2877 citations)
- Dynamics of Spontaneous Symmetry Breaking in the Weinberg-Salam Theory (1078 citations)

His scientific interests lie mostly in Theoretical physics, Mathematical physics, Quantum mechanics, Classical mechanics and Black hole. In his work, Entropy is strongly intertwined with Quantum, which is a subfield of Theoretical physics. His Mathematical physics study incorporates themes from Particle physics, De Sitter space, De Sitter universe and Conjecture.

In his study, which falls under the umbrella issue of Classical mechanics, Relationship between string theory and quantum field theory is strongly linked to Non-critical string theory. Hawking radiation, White hole, Event horizon, Black hole complementarity and Black hole thermodynamics are among the areas of Black hole where the researcher is concentrating his efforts. His String theory research includes themes of Horizon, Instanton and Holographic principle.

Theoretical physics, Black hole, Quantum, Conjecture and Wormhole are his primary areas of study. His study on Theoretical physics is mostly dedicated to connecting different topics, such as Quantum entanglement. In his research on the topic of Black hole, Dual is strongly related with Particle.

In the field of Quantum, his study on Qubit and Quantum gravity overlaps with subjects such as Quantum circuit. The study incorporates disciplines such as String theory, Instanton, Mathematical physics, De Sitter universe and Jackiw–Teitelboim gravity in addition to Conjecture. As a part of the same scientific family, Leonard Susskind mostly works in the field of Exponential function, focusing on Bounded function and, on occasion, Classical mechanics.
