Main Question or Discussion Point

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.
