    what area of aerospace??

    just finished my math undergrad with a good amount of physics and research on vortex rings. i enjoyed ode/pde/vector calc and would like to explore physical phenomena related to these areas. this leads me to aerospace.

    at the graduate level, any suggestions on areas i may like? if nothing else do you know a resource on becoming familiar enough with basic areas ie plasma/control/thermodynamics...

    please be specific.

    thanks

    You may enjoy turbulence research based on some of that.

    Turbulence most likely. You could also study deep stall and vortex augmented lift.
