So basically I need to do a project on a topic in "beyond standard model"
can anyone give me any theoretically interesting topics?
I know this is a very loose question, but ..

p.s im a 3rd yr undergrad so nothing to crazy

Only topics i can think of are just a standard search for a particle e.g graviton, higgs boson, branon, tachyon etc...

MiniBooNE, LTSC and MINOS results for sterile neutrinos (not present in SM).

Depends upon your interest. If you look for a useful mathematical topic you might want to generalize QFT to more general structures than Hilbert spaces.

SUSY; you could introduce and discuss it in QM and then generalize to QFT

I think SUSY would be the most accessible / feasibily one to choose, as tom says.

Otherwise you start looking at things like string theory, LQG, non-commutative geometry etc.. You'll find the details in these somewhat inpenetrable initially but it may be possible to put together a 'hand-wavey' project on one of them based on the vast amount of online discussions of these topics. You'd have to be very careful with citing appropriate references for any assertions you make though.

Conclusion, it'd be far easier to just do SUSY. Good luck with whatever you choose.
