I am going to apply for a programme of mathematical and theoretical physics for graduate studies and I'm currently studying maths. What is a good area to do a thesis (that is to say, considerable extra work and research) in? Here "good" means useful for my following studies and possibly making a good impression in the selection process for graduate studies.
