Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Galaxy
  • Astronomy
  • Astrophysics

His primary areas of study are Astrophysics, Astronomy, Galaxy, Galaxy formation and evolution and Elliptical galaxy. His study involves Galaxy cluster, Galaxy merger, Lenticular galaxy, Interacting galaxy and Star formation, a branch of Astrophysics. His work on Protogalaxy as part of general Lenticular galaxy study is frequently connected to Universality, therefore bridging the gap between diverse disciplines of science and establishing a new relationship between them.

His study looks at the intersection of Galaxy and topics like Dark matter with Configuration entropy. His research integrates issues of Dark matter halo, Stellar mass and Galactic halo in his study of Galaxy formation and evolution. His Elliptical galaxy research includes themes of Radio galaxy and Luminous infrared galaxy.

His most cited work include:

  • Breaking the hierarchy of galaxy formation (2081 citations)
  • The broken hierarchy of galaxy formation (2030 citations)
  • The EAGLE project: Simulating the evolution and assembly of galaxies and their environments (1954 citations)

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

Richard G. Bower spends much of his time researching Astrophysics, Galaxy, Astronomy, Redshift and Star formation. Galaxy formation and evolution, Galaxy cluster, Stellar mass, Elliptical galaxy and Galaxy group are the core of his Astrophysics study. His research on Galaxy often connects related areas such as Dark matter.

His research in Lenticular galaxy, Luminous infrared galaxy, Galaxy merger, Interacting galaxy and Brightest cluster galaxy are components of Astronomy. He interconnects Stars, Universe, Emission spectrum and Velocity dispersion in the investigation of issues within Redshift. His research links Metallicity with Star formation.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Astrophysics (91.15%)
  • Galaxy (67.08%)
  • Astronomy (48.32%)

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

  • Astrophysics (91.15%)
  • Galaxy (67.08%)
  • Astronomy (48.32%)

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

His scientific interests lie mostly in Astrophysics, Galaxy, Astronomy, Redshift and Stellar mass. His study in Astrophysics concentrates on Star formation, Galaxy formation and evolution, Dark matter, Halo and Active galactic nucleus. His work on Accretion, Metallicity and Velocity dispersion as part of general Galaxy research is frequently linked to Specific relative angular momentum, thereby connecting diverse disciplines of science.

His Redshift research includes elements of COSMIC cancer database, Radius, Luminosity and Supermassive black hole, Black hole. His work in Stellar mass addresses issues such as Spiral galaxy, which are connected to fields such as Mass ratio. His Lenticular galaxy study deals with Interacting galaxy intersecting with Brightest cluster galaxy.

Between 2015 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • The APOSTLE simulations: solutions to the Local Group's cosmic puzzles (408 citations)
  • The EAGLE simulations of galaxy formation: Public release of halo and galaxy catalogues (282 citations)
  • A unified multiwavelength model of galaxy formation (267 citations)

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

  • Astronomy
  • Galaxy
  • Astrophysics

Astrophysics, Astronomy, Galaxy, Stellar mass and Redshift are his primary areas of study. His study in Galaxy formation and evolution, Luminous infrared galaxy, Dark matter, Active galactic nucleus and Galaxy rotation curve is carried out as part of his Astrophysics studies. Elliptical galaxy, Galaxy merger, Dark matter halo, Galaxy cluster and Dwarf galaxy problem are subfields of Astronomy in which his conducts study.

His work on Star formation and Halo as part of general Galaxy study is frequently linked to Scaling, therefore connecting diverse disciplines of science. His study on Star formation also encompasses disciplines like

  • Metallicity together with Fundamental plane,
  • Redshift survey and related Velocity dispersion. His Redshift research focuses on subjects like Luminosity, which are linked to Spectral line, Line and Dark Ages.
