I have completed a series of physics simulations on Matlab to find the equilibrium positions of parties in 2-D or 3-D voting space and compared them to the optimal positions that would provide the maximum average voter satisfaction. The physics aspects are in the use of forces that attract parties to voters.

Would anyone suggest a physicist or other academician who would be interested in providing guidance and contributing to a paper? Some leading authors on sociophysics have turned me down because multi-party politics is a field dominated by political scientists, but I think this simulation would be something novel.

As it currently stands, this question is not a good fit for our Q&A format. We expect answers to be supported by facts, references, or expertise, but this question will likely solicit debate, arguments, polling, or extended discussion. If you feel that this question can be improved and possibly reopened, visit the help center for guidance.If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

Charitably this is a make-a-list questions, alternately it is simply off-topic as it is not about physics but about physicists. On a side note may I suggest that you are trying to write a simulation on [no-physics-subject] using methods from physics rather than using physics which would be pretty silly: "as you can see neuron 184362642597829 in the brain of subject 74521 fires at time 89752.3617 seconds resulting in ..." – dmckee Nov 29 '12 at 17:10
