Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Astronomy
  • Galaxy
  • Milky Way

Michael Hilker spends much of his time researching Astrophysics, Globular cluster, Dwarf galaxy, Astronomy and Fornax Cluster. His research related to Galaxy, Elliptical galaxy, Galaxy cluster, Star cluster and Metallicity might be considered part of Astrophysics. His Star cluster research integrates issues from Galaxy groups and clusters and Open cluster.

His studies deal with areas such as Stellar population, Milky Way, Stellar mass and Velocity dispersion as well as Globular cluster. While the research belongs to areas of Fornax Cluster, Michael Hilker spends his time largely on the problem of Luminosity function, intersecting his research to questions surrounding Local Group and Brightness. The concepts of his Stars study are interwoven with issues in Spectral line and Black hole.

His most cited work include:

  • A class of compact dwarf galaxies from disruptive processes in galaxy clusters (249 citations)
  • The central region of the Fornax cluster II. Spectroscopy and radial velocities of member and background galaxies (236 citations)
  • The central region of the Fornax cluster II. Spectroscopy and radial velocities of member and background galaxies (236 citations)

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

His primary scientific interests are in Astrophysics, Globular cluster, Galaxy, Astronomy and Dwarf galaxy. Galaxy cluster, Fornax Cluster, Elliptical galaxy, Star cluster and Stars are the primary areas of interest in his Astrophysics study. His studies in Globular cluster integrate themes in fields like Metallicity, Stellar population, Milky Way, Dark matter and Velocity dispersion.

His Velocity dispersion research incorporates themes from Modified Newtonian dynamics, Dark matter halo, Radial velocity and Type-cD galaxy. His work on Astronomy deals in particular with Brightest cluster galaxy, Open cluster, Lenticular galaxy, Dwarf galaxy problem and Interacting galaxy. His Dwarf galaxy research includes themes of Magnitude, Galaxy group and Luminosity function.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Astrophysics (89.07%)
  • Globular cluster (55.05%)
  • Galaxy (46.19%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2015-2021)?

  • Astrophysics (89.07%)
  • Galaxy (46.19%)
  • Globular cluster (55.05%)

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

Astrophysics, Galaxy, Globular cluster, Dwarf galaxy and Stars are his primary areas of study. His Astrophysics study frequently draws connections to other fields, such as Astronomy. His Globular cluster study deals with Metallicity intersecting with Galaxy formation and evolution.

His Dwarf galaxy study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Galaxy group and Luminosity function. The Milky Way, Photometry and Spiral galaxy research Michael Hilker does as part of his general Stars study is frequently linked to other disciplines of science, such as Abundance, therefore creating a link between diverse domains of science. His study focuses on the intersection of Fornax Cluster and fields such as Radius with connections in the field of Virial theorem.

Between 2015 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Mean proper motions, space orbits, and velocity dispersion profiles of Galactic globular clusters derived from Gaia DR2 data (215 citations)
  • A catalogue of masses, structural parameters, and velocity dispersion profiles of 112 Milky Way globular clusters (186 citations)
  • The Fornax Deep Survey with VST. I. The Extended and Diffuse Stellar Halo of NGC 1399 out to 192 kpc (107 citations)

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

  • Galaxy
  • Astronomy
  • Milky Way

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Astrophysics, Galaxy, Globular cluster, Stars and Astronomy. His study involves Fornax Cluster, Halo, Star cluster, Dwarf galaxy and Milky Way, a branch of Astrophysics. The various areas that he examines in his Fornax Cluster study include Magnitude, Radius and Virgo Cluster.

His work investigates the relationship between Galaxy and topics such as Planetary nebula that intersect with problems in Dark matter. Michael Hilker combines subjects such as Initial mass function and Velocity dispersion with his study of Globular cluster. His work deals with themes such as Supermassive black hole and Elliptical galaxy, which intersect with Galaxy cluster.
