"Sociophysics", econophysics, or any other non-physical field of physics Right now I'm going through my career options. I'm pretty sure I want to do research in the physical sciences, but I also have interests in other non-physical science fields, such as politics and economics. I'm just now becoming aware of econophysics, sociophysics, etc., and would like to maybe one day do something in the private sector that explores these fields in maybe a think tank fashion (big dreams, I know). I was wondering if anyone here could name some more of these fields, point me to some research that has been done in them, or maybe give some analogies between physical systems and sociological/economic/etc. systems.
