Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Astronomy
  • Galaxy
  • Astrophysics

His main research concerns Astrophysics, Astronomy, Galaxy, Active galactic nucleus and Supermassive black hole. His Astrophysics study frequently intersects with other fields, such as Spectral line. Galaxy connects with themes related to Stars in his study.

His Active galactic nucleus research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Virial mass, Line, Luminosity function, Low Mass and Emission spectrum. The study incorporates disciplines such as Schwarzschild radius and Photon in addition to Supermassive black hole. His Luminous infrared galaxy research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Disc and Galaxy formation and evolution.

His most cited work include:

  • A Relationship between Nuclear Black Hole Mass and Galaxy Velocity Dispersion (3321 citations)
  • Coevolution (Or Not) of Supermassive Black Holes and Host Galaxies (2478 citations)
  • THE SLOPE OF THE BLACK HOLE MASS VERSUS VELOCITY DISPERSION CORRELATION (2413 citations)

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

Astrophysics, Galaxy, Astronomy, Active galactic nucleus and Quasar are his primary areas of study. His research in Black hole, Luminosity, Star formation, Supermassive black hole and Accretion are components of Astrophysics. His Black hole research integrates issues from Solar mass and Velocity dispersion.

His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Binary black hole and Spin-flip. His work deals with themes such as Spectral line and Emission spectrum, which intersect with Galaxy. Luis C. Ho interconnects Line, Doubly ionized oxygen, Light curve and Low Mass in the investigation of issues within Active galactic nucleus.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Astrophysics (100.40%)
  • Galaxy (68.15%)
  • Astronomy (40.65%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2018-2021)?

  • Astrophysics (100.40%)
  • Galaxy (68.15%)
  • Active galactic nucleus (39.06%)

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

His primary areas of investigation include Astrophysics, Galaxy, Active galactic nucleus, Star formation and Stellar mass. Quasar, Supermassive black hole, Accretion, Luminosity and Reverberation mapping are the subjects of his Astrophysics studies. In his study, Radio galaxy is strongly linked to Black hole, which falls under the umbrella field of Galaxy.

Active galactic nucleus is a subfield of Astronomy that he tackles. His Star formation study incorporates themes from Spectral line, Metallicity and Surface brightness. His Stellar mass study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Halo, Elliptical galaxy, Extinction, Universe and Velocity dispersion.

Between 2018 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • First M87 Event Horizon Telescope Results. I. The Shadow of the Supermassive Black Hole (1011 citations)
  • First M87 Event Horizon Telescope Results. VI. The Shadow and Mass of the Central Black Hole (402 citations)
  • First M87 Event Horizon Telescope Results. V. Physical Origin of the Asymmetric Ring (375 citations)

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

  • Galaxy
  • Astrophysics
  • Astronomy

His primary areas of study are Astrophysics, Galaxy, Active galactic nucleus, Supermassive black hole and Star formation. Astrophysics is a component of his Accretion, Luminosity, Stellar mass, Quasar and Black hole studies. Spectral index is closely connected to Radio galaxy in his research, which is encompassed under the umbrella topic of Quasar.

His study in Active galactic nucleus is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Redshift and Emission spectrum. Luis C. Ho combines subjects such as Amplitude and Interferometry with his study of Supermassive black hole. Luis C. Ho focuses mostly in the field of Star formation, narrowing it down to topics relating to Interstellar medium and, in certain cases, Luminous infrared galaxy.
