What field contains more physics in computational physics

  1. Aug 26, 2015 #1
    I am now a Ph.D. student just finishing my first year. According to my strengths, I think I should find my way in computational physics. The 'traditional' field of my advisor's group is DFT calculation. However, I think DFT calculation are more like procedures and does not contain much physics and creativity.

    So, I want to find a field which contains both a lot of physics and computation(And of course, in condensed matter physics field). Is there any suggestions?

    I know, but I want a special topic, like topological insulator
