I wrote a research paper "A mathematical model of the Mafia game" (arXiv:1009.1031 [math.PR]). However, I do not know where to publish it. As an undergraduate studying majorly physics, I have little knowledge of mathematical journals. Moreover, its not easy for me to classify its subject.
The paper itself is generally "using applied mathematics (and physicist's approach) to model a party game (psychology)". Just to give some of its features:
- Uses pure death process and gives its closed-form solution
- Is elementary and didactic (a tricky use of generating functions, Wallis formula, ...)
- Somehow "cool" topic
I thought about The American Mathematical Monthly. Besides the obvious advantages I see two drawbacks:
- In AMM there are usually an old results in a nice/didactic/cool form or short findings
- It won't reach to psychologists who might investigate the Mafia game experimentally
Can you recommend me any proper journal? (popular mathematics, mathematics and psychology, ...?) Any other advice are appreciated as well.
