Hi:

I've been interested since long time ago in Economics. Also, I've heard there are science majors working in Economics/Finance firms and I've read some of the threads on physicists turned "quants". I'm actually interested in using Physics & Mathematics to create economical models. I know about places like:

http://www.imw.uni-bielefeld.de/home/home.php

http://www.socialsciences.manchester...uate/phdareas/

http://college.usc.edu/econ/graduate/fields.cfm

Working on that.

I think there are mathematical areas like:

* Discrete math
* Dynamical Systems
* Game Theory

And others, being used to construct models. My questions are:

1. Are there any other schools working on them?
2. How easy would be for a science major get into Economics graduate degree programs?
3. How much useful would be to do research on this area?
4. Do any of you have experiences doing research on this?

Thanks, in advace.
