His main research concerns Astrophysics, Planet, Exoplanet, Astronomy and Planetary system. His Astrophysics research focuses on Transit and how it relates to Radius and Spectrograph. The study incorporates disciplines such as Stars, Stellar rotation, Orbital period and Radial velocity in addition to Planet.
His Radial velocity research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Orbit and Minimum mass. His studies deal with areas such as Amplitude, Atmosphere and Solar System as well as Exoplanet. His Planetary system study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Doppler measurements, Terrestrial planet, Mean motion and Protoplanetary disk.
Astrophysics, Astronomy, Planet, Stars and Radial velocity are his primary areas of study. His research combines Radius and Astrophysics. His work in the fields of Binary star, Super-Earth, Photometry and K-type main-sequence star overlaps with other areas such as Context.
The concepts of his Planet study are interwoven with issues in Spectrograph and Transit. His study in Stars is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Scanner and Photoelectric effect. The various areas that he examines in his Radial velocity study include Orbital elements, Primary, Light curve and Cepheid variable.
M. Mayor focuses on Planet, Astronomy, Astrophysics, Exoplanet and Radial velocity. M. Mayor usually deals with Planet and limits it to topics linked to Stars and Light curve. His study ties his expertise on Series together with the subject of Astronomy.
His Radius research extends to the thematically linked field of Astrophysics. His study looks at the relationship between Exoplanet and topics such as Telescope, which overlap with Minimum mass. His Radial velocity research incorporates themes from Terrestrial planet, Photometry, Transit and Circumstellar habitable zone.
M. Mayor mostly deals with Planet, Astrophysics, Exoplanet, Planetary system and Radial velocity. His study on Planet is covered under Astronomy. In Astrophysics, M. Mayor works on issues like Radius, which are connected to Low Mass, Photometry and Exoplanetology.
When carried out as part of a general Exoplanet research project, his work on Hot Jupiter is frequently linked to work in Noise, therefore connecting diverse disciplines of study. His Radial velocity study also includes fields such as
