Hi guys, I'm going to be starting my senior project in computational physics by next semester, and my goal is to do something publishable in the fields of either analytical or quantum mechanics. However, I'm having difficulty determing what exactly that could be; the idea is either so complicated that I couldn't fully analyze the system within 1-2 semesters, or its of no particular interest to any applied physicists. For example, my current thoughts have been to either analyze a simple harmonic oscillator going through air with a temperature gradient, or a charged double pendulum in an electric field. I'm not sure how far I could get with something along these lines, or even if such analyses would be accepted by a journal. Could I get some guidance?
