## Main Question or Discussion Point

I am a physics major.

I took introductory quantum mechanics, theoretical mechanics, general relativity, and math until linear algebra, diff. equations, probability and statistics, and discrete math.

I had decided to do some research while being undergraduate. Approaching faculty members did not succeed since all faculty believed only graduates would do research. (my college is in Egypt - the idea of undergrad research is really absurd.)

I thought that I may come up with a topic first, then I would seek their assistance. They are really helpful but they just do not get it that undergraduates may do research.

Please help me by suggesting a specific topic that I may research - and it would be really appreciated if you could elaborate what textbooks/papers I should be aware of first.

I have no problem if I had to read many textbooks/papers this semester and start research in spring.
