Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Galaxy
  • Astronomy
  • Astrophysics

Matthew Colless mostly deals with Astrophysics, Galaxy, Redshift, Astronomy and Redshift survey. 2dF Galaxy Redshift Survey, Luminosity, Luminosity function, Dark energy and Hubble's law are the primary areas of interest in his Astrophysics study. His work deals with themes such as Amplitude, Measure, Spectral density and Absolute magnitude, which intersect with 2dF Galaxy Redshift Survey.

His Galaxy study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Sky and Spectrograph. He has researched Redshift in several fields, including Cold dark matter and Structure formation. His studies in Redshift survey integrate themes in fields like Galaxy formation and evolution, Galaxy group, VLT Survey Telescope, Photometry and Stellar mass.

His most cited work include:

  • The 2dF Galaxy Redshift Survey: spectra and redshifts (1905 citations)
  • The 2dF Galaxy Redshift Survey: Spectra and redshifts (1810 citations)
  • The 6dF Galaxy Survey: baryon acoustic oscillations and the local Hubble constant (1697 citations)

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

His primary areas of study are Astrophysics, Galaxy, Astronomy, Redshift and Redshift survey. All of his Astrophysics and 2dF Galaxy Redshift Survey, Luminosity, Elliptical galaxy, Velocity dispersion and Galaxy formation and evolution investigations are sub-components of the entire Astrophysics study. His research investigates the link between Velocity dispersion and topics such as Fundamental plane that cross with problems in Surface brightness.

In most of his Galaxy studies, his work intersects topics such as Sky. His research investigates the connection between Redshift and topics such as Dark energy that intersect with issues in Baryon. Matthew Colless is interested in Field galaxy, which is a branch of Redshift survey.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Astrophysics (83.14%)
  • Galaxy (70.49%)
  • Astronomy (47.72%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2013-2021)?

  • Galaxy (70.49%)
  • Astrophysics (83.14%)
  • Astronomy (47.72%)

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

His primary scientific interests are in Galaxy, Astrophysics, Astronomy, Redshift and Stellar mass. His is doing research in Star formation, Stellar population, Redshift survey, Galaxy formation and evolution and Stellar kinematics, both of which are found in Galaxy. His Galaxy formation and evolution research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Local Group and Sky.

Matthew Colless has included themes like Kinematics and Angular momentum in his Astrophysics study. His Redshift research includes themes of Active galactic nucleus, Cosmology, Dark energy, Luminosity and Universe. He interconnects Halo and Spiral galaxy in the investigation of issues within Stellar mass.

Between 2013 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Galaxy and mass assembly (GAMA): End of survey report and data release 2 (352 citations)
  • The SAMI Galaxy Survey: Instrument specification and target selection (322 citations)
  • The WiggleZ Dark Energy Survey: improved distance measurements to z = 1 with reconstruction of the baryonic acoustic feature (246 citations)

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

  • Galaxy
  • Astronomy
  • Astrophysics

His primary areas of investigation include Astrophysics, Galaxy, Astronomy, Stellar mass and Redshift. His study involves Velocity dispersion, Fundamental plane, Disc galaxy, Stellar kinematics and Dark energy, a branch of Astrophysics. His study focuses on the intersection of Galaxy and fields such as Kinematics with connections in the field of Field spectroscopy and Abell 520.

As a member of one scientific family, Matthew Colless mostly works in the field of Stellar mass, focusing on Sigma and, on occasion, Asymmetry. The various areas that he examines in his Redshift study include Observatory and Bulge. His research integrates issues of Image resolution, Spectrograph, Integral field spectrograph, Data release and Surface brightness in his study of Redshift survey.
