Russell Lyons mostly deals with Discrete mathematics, Combinatorics, Random walk, Random graph and Percolation. His studies deal with areas such as Completeness, Group representation and Homology as well as Discrete mathematics. His work on Unimodular matrix, Pathwidth and Spanning tree as part of general Combinatorics study is frequently linked to Continuum percolation theory and Symmetric graph, therefore connecting diverse disciplines of science.

His Random walk research incorporates themes from Galton watson, Hausdorff dimension and Harmonic measure. His Percolation research includes themes of Tree and Statistical physics. His research investigates the connection between Cayley graph and topics such as Isoperimetric inequality that intersect with issues in Omega, Automorphism, Invariant and Embedding.

- Processes on Unimodular Random Networks (405 citations)
- Conceptual proofs of L log L criteria for mean behavior of branching processes (393 citations)

Combinatorics, Discrete mathematics, Random walk, Pure mathematics and Spanning tree are his primary areas of study. His work deals with themes such as Measure, Mathematical proof and Markov chain, which intersect with Discrete mathematics. His work carried out in the field of Random walk brings together such families of science as Hausdorff dimension and First passage percolation.

His Pure mathematics research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Function, Uniqueness and Space. The Spanning tree study combines topics in areas such as Giant component, Entropy, Connectivity and Minimum spanning tree. His Probability measure study which covers Point process that intersects with Triviality, Completeness, Group representation, Matroid and Homology.

Russell Lyons mainly investigates Upper and lower bounds, Combinatorics, Discrete mathematics, Eigenvalues and eigenvectors and Trace. His Combinatorics research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Ergodic theory and Entropy. The concepts of his Discrete mathematics study are interwoven with issues in Embedding, Mathematical proof, Random walk and Statistical hypothesis testing.

His Embedding research incorporates themes from Stochastic process, Random graph and Isoperimetric inequality. His Random walk research includes themes of Cayley graph, Spectrum, Markov chain and Spanning tree. Russell Lyons combines subjects such as Spectral function, Operator, Heat kernel and Pure mathematics with his study of Eigenvalues and eigenvectors.
