Paul A. Samuelson mainly focuses on Mathematical economics, Neoclassical economics, Factor price equalization, Positive economics and Econometrics. Paul A. Samuelson has researched Mathematical economics in several fields, including Preference, Random variable, Axiom independence, Revealed preference and Relative price. His studies in Neoclassical economics integrate themes in fields like Function and Induced innovation.

His study in Factor price equalization is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Independent goods and Stolper–Samuelson theorem. His research in Positive economics intersects with topics in Fallacy, Indifference curve, Welfare economics and Club theory. Paul A. Samuelson works mostly in the field of Econometrics, limiting it down to topics relating to Modern portfolio theory and, in certain cases, Post-modern portfolio theory, as a part of the same area of interest.

- The Pure Theory of Public Expanditure (4589 citations)
- Foundations of Economic Analysis (3890 citations)
- An Exact Consumption-Loan Model of Interest with or without the Social Contrivance of Money (2536 citations)

His primary areas of investigation include Mathematical economics, Neoclassical economics, Microeconomics, Positive economics and Econometrics.

- Neoclassical economics (11.18%)

Paul A. Samuelson mainly investigates Neoclassical economics, Mathematical economics, Classics, Positive economics and Economic history. His study on Comparative advantage is often connected to Economic Thought as part of broader study in Neoclassical economics. His Mathematical economics research focuses on Expected utility hypothesis in particular.

In his work, he performs multidisciplinary research in Classics and Economic analysis. His work on Applied economics, Heterodox economics and Mainstream economics is typically connected to Marxian economics as part of general Positive economics study, connecting several disciplines of science. His Economic history research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Birth rate, Financial crisis and Coronation.

- Where Ricardo and Mill Rebut and Confirm Arguments of Mainstream Economists Supporting Globalization (556 citations)
- Interactions Between The Multiplier Analysis And The Principle Of Acceleration (543 citations)

Paul A. Samuelson mostly deals with Neoclassical economics, Mathematical economics, Biography, Globalization and Mainstream economics. He interconnects Technological change, Production, Wage and Fallacy in the investigation of issues within Neoclassical economics. His Mathematical economics research incorporates elements of Mathematical proof, Matrix, Law of large numbers, Limit and Returns to scale.

His Biography study combines topics in areas such as Applied economics, Wright and Law and economics. He focuses mostly in the field of Globalization, narrowing it down to topics relating to Democracy and, in certain cases, Real income, Development economics, International trade, Productivity and Inequality. The concepts of his Mainstream economics study are interwoven with issues in Overlapping generations model, Transformation problem, Factor price equalization, Comparative statics and History of economic thought.
