Masters in Mathematics

  1. May 18, 2015 #1
    Hi! I'm considering a maters degree in mathematics as the title suggests. Right now I have to decide a specific topic and I've narrowed it down a bit but I'd like some input from people in the field (or getting into the field). I am inclined to research something applied in physics. Here's what I've got so far:

    1) Dynamical Systems: Optimization, Fractals or Ergodic Theory
    2) Topology: Knot Theory
    3) Algorithms: Folding math

    I'm open to suggestions and any resources available on the topic will be appreciated. :)

    By folding math you mean something like Origami?

    Here's a video on Origami, there's several sections where math and origami intersect in the discussion:

    Check out 39:20 on Merrimack College math and 42:20 on Prof Eric Demaine, an Origami theorist's work.
