Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Galaxy
  • Astronomy
  • Milky Way

Robert A. Crain mainly focuses on Astrophysics, Galaxy, Astronomy, Galaxy formation and evolution and Galaxy merger. Astrophysics is represented through his Star formation, Lenticular galaxy, Elliptical galaxy, Stellar mass and Galaxy rotation curve research. His research integrates issues of Stellar mass loss and Supernova in his study of Star formation.

His research related to Metallicity, Accretion, Milky Way, Redshift and Cold dark matter might be considered part of Galaxy. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Universe and Mass fraction. His study in Galaxy formation and evolution is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Active galactic nucleus, Dark matter halo and Galactic halo.

His most cited work include:

  • The EAGLE project: Simulating the evolution and assembly of galaxies and their environments (1954 citations)
  • The EAGLE simulations of galaxy formation: calibration of subgrid physics and model variations (741 citations)
  • The EAGLE simulations of galaxy formation: calibration of subgrid physics and model variations (741 citations)

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

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Astrophysics, Galaxy, Astronomy, Galaxy formation and evolution and Star formation. His Stellar mass, Halo, Dark matter, Dark matter halo and Stars investigations are all subjects of Astrophysics research. His research in Elliptical galaxy, Galaxy merger, Lenticular galaxy, Galaxy group and Luminous infrared galaxy are components of Astronomy.

His Lenticular galaxy research includes themes of Interacting galaxy and Brightest cluster galaxy. Robert A. Crain has researched Galaxy formation and evolution in several fields, including Cold dark matter and Halo mass function. His Star formation study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Supermassive black hole, Interstellar medium, Supernova and Active galactic nucleus.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Astrophysics (114.66%)
  • Galaxy (96.12%)
  • Astronomy (61.21%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2018-2021)?

  • Astrophysics (114.66%)
  • Galaxy (96.12%)
  • Halo (26.72%)

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

His primary scientific interests are in Astrophysics, Galaxy, Halo, Galaxy formation and evolution and Globular cluster. His study in Star formation, Stellar mass, Redshift, Dark matter and Stars falls within the category of Astrophysics. Robert A. Crain focuses mostly in the field of Galaxy, narrowing it down to matters related to Black hole and, in some cases, Kinetic energy.

His studies in Halo integrate themes in fields like Galaxy groups and clusters, Luminosity, Radius and Baryon. His Galaxy formation and evolution study necessitates a more in-depth grasp of Astronomy. His Globular cluster research integrates issues from Stellar population and Star cluster.

Between 2018 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • The formation and assembly history of the Milky Way revealed by its globular cluster population (152 citations)
  • The E-MOSAICS project: tracing galaxy formation and assembly with the age-metallicity distribution of globular clusters (46 citations)
  • The quenching and morphological evolution of central galaxies is facilitated by the feedback-driven expulsion of circumgalactic gas (38 citations)

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

  • Galaxy
  • Astronomy
  • Milky Way

Robert A. Crain mainly investigates Galaxy, Astrophysics, Stellar mass, Galaxy formation and evolution and Star formation. While the research belongs to areas of Galaxy, Robert A. Crain spends his time largely on the problem of Black hole, intersecting his research to questions surrounding Star and Luminosity function. His Astrophysics study is mostly concerned with Active galactic nucleus and Dark matter.

He performs integrative Galaxy formation and evolution and Context research in his work. His Globular cluster research also works with subjects such as

  • Milky Way which connect with Galactic halo and Virial mass,
  • Metallicity that intertwine with fields like Galaxy merger. His Halo research includes elements of Accretion and Radius.
