Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Galaxy
  • Astronomy
  • Astrophysics

Will J. Percival mostly deals with Astrophysics, Galaxy, Redshift, Astronomy and Sky. In his research, Hubble's law and Universe is intimately related to Cosmic microwave background, which falls under the overarching field of Astrophysics. The concepts of his Galaxy study are interwoven with issues in Stars, Observatory, Spectral density and Dark matter.

While the research belongs to areas of Redshift, Will J. Percival spends his time largely on the problem of Photometry, intersecting his research to questions surrounding Billion years. His research on Astronomy often connects related topics like Cluster analysis. When carried out as part of a general Sky research project, his work on Data release is frequently linked to work in Set, therefore connecting diverse disciplines of study.

His most cited work include:

  • The Seventh Data Release of the Sloan Digital Sky Survey (4732 citations)
  • The eleventh and twelfth data releases of the Sloan Digital Sky Survey: final data from SDSS-III (1815 citations)
  • SDSS-III: MASSIVE SPECTROSCOPIC SURVEYS OF THE DISTANT UNIVERSE, THE MILKY WAY, AND EXTRA-SOLAR PLANETARY SYSTEMS (1779 citations)

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

His primary areas of investigation include Astrophysics, Galaxy, Redshift, Astronomy and Baryon. His is doing research in Dark energy, Quasar, Baryon acoustic oscillations, Redshift survey and Sky, both of which are found in Astrophysics. His Sky research incorporates elements of Stars and Spectral line.

His studies deal with areas such as Cosmology, Spectral density, Dark matter and Cluster analysis as well as Galaxy. The various areas that he examines in his Redshift study include Halo, Sigma, Cosmic microwave background and Emission spectrum. His Baryon research integrates issues from Cold dark matter, Angular diameter distance, Hubble's law, Oscillation and Correlation function.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Astrophysics (98.77%)
  • Galaxy (84.33%)
  • Redshift (63.56%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2017-2021)?

  • Astrophysics (98.77%)
  • Galaxy (84.33%)
  • Redshift (63.56%)

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

Will J. Percival focuses on Astrophysics, Galaxy, Redshift, Baryon and Dark energy. His Astrophysics research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Sigma, Cosmic microwave background and Emission spectrum. His research integrates issues of Sky, COSMIC cancer database and Cluster analysis in his study of Galaxy.

The study incorporates disciplines such as Cosmology, Quasar and Spectral density in addition to Redshift. Dark energy is a primary field of his research addressed under Astronomy. His study on Observatory is often connected to Geology as part of broader study in Astronomy.

Between 2017 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • The Fourteenth Data Release of the Sloan Digital Sky Survey: First Spectroscopic data from the extended Baryon Oscillation Spectroscopic Survey and from the second phase of the Apache Point Observatory Galactic Evolution Experiment (753 citations)
  • Dark Energy Survey year 1 results: Cosmological constraints from galaxy clustering and weak lensing (670 citations)
  • The Dark Energy Survey: Data Release 1 (298 citations)
