My teacher told me to do a research studying some physics problems that has connection with Green's function on solving differential equations (with programmed numerical solutions) in my final year project, can you give me such problems to work on as an undergraduate?

I found this but I need more interesting problems to work on! any help?

Hi Med Akram Z. Welcome to Phys.SE. Green functions appear in virtually every branch of physics, so I'm closing this question as not constructive. In other words, the question is basically an open-ended list question. – Qmechanic May 27 '13 at 21:17
@Qmechanic: Why do you close this question so quickly? This forum is as good a place as any for Med Akram Z to seek an answer. There might be a lot of people around here who could direct him quickly to an area of research. Keep in mind that when you are not familiar with such physics, it is not easy to have an oversight of domains involving Green's functions, and I understand why he would be lost here. – Mathusalem May 27 '13 at 21:21
@Mathusalem thank you for your support man , the problem is im a math/CS student that didnt study physics that much and the first time i heard of green function is the time when my teacher asked me to do a research on it ! . i didnt mean to be wide open in my question .. – Lofaif May 27 '13 at 21:31
@Mathusalem no it's not. In fact, this site (which is a Q&A site, not a forum) is specifically designed to be a bad place for people to seek answers to broad list questions like this one. There are plenty of other sites that would be better places to ask for something like that. (Reddit's /r/Physics might be one) – David Z May 27 '13 at 21:32
As @Qmechanic says, Green's functions can be used in any situation where inhomogeneous differential equations appear and are useful in a substantial fraction of those possibilities. Optics, heat transfer, geophysics, etc, etc, etc... – dmckee May 27 '13 at 23:14
