Physics Research in physics

  1. May 2, 2014 #1
    I am a physics graduate and I have just spent two years researching about problems like dark energy and dark matter and didn't get anywhere, did not even manage to write a single research paper. I like writing and publishing research papers as many as I can because they give me the feeling of a accomplishment and they could help me get a job or scholarship or research grant... or something. Recently, I realized that the reason I didn't get anywhere because these are very complex problems and even scientist working in the field don't fully understand them. What I am interested in is physics and computer programming, so is there an area of physics that requires the use of computer programming. I mean writing a computer model and publishing that in a journal.

    This is very puzzling.

    What are you doing for a living? Are you doing these "research" on your own? What is your highest degree in physics? ("a physics graduate" doesn't actually tell much).

    I am doing research on my own and I have masters degree in physics.

    I'm not sure what a masters degree entails in your part of the world, but 2-1/2 years ago you were asking questions that would be typical for a 1st year college student, or earlier. Typically one only writes research papers, particularly on his or her own, after many more years of study.

    I am just using my friend's account to ask a question and I have a MSc degree in physics its a four year course, three for undergraduate course and one for Masters course.
