    Wasn't really sure where to post this - it's not much of a problem - rather hoping for some suggestions on an essay topic:

    I'm required to write a short essay (in the style of a wikipedia article, 1500-2000 words) for a 'Modelling Complex Systems' module; I've been given the following options:
    1. The Minority game
    2. Self-organised criticality
    3. The Metropolis algorithm
    4. The use of random walks in monte-carlo simulation
    5. Scale-invariance in natural or financial systems
    6. The Ising model
    7. Nash equilibria
    8. Applications of neural networks in physics
    9. Applications of genetic algorithms in physics
    10. Any other topic with the approval of academic

    I feel the need not to do the same topic as everyone else - so a similar, unlisted topic is sought - I'm just not sure of a suitable choice. I always aim to leave an impression rather than just producing a rushed, unthought piece of work. Any suggestions on an interesting subject area?
