Sage days 9 Student Projects
Please add your project to this list. Follow the examples that are already there.
Adrian Belshaw: Unimodular Polynomials. Using Sage to draw unimodualr polynomials on the unit circle in the complex plane.
Arnaud Bergeron: Better adaptive plotting in Sage. At William's request, I am working on better adaptive refinement for Sage's plot() command.
Drew Chorney: Fundamental Domains of Congruence Subgroups and an Animation of a Geodesic :Some Geodesic's on the identification space of a fundamental domain for PSL(2,Z) in jyscript. And visualization of fundamental domains for congruence subgroups using SAGE.
Mclean Edwards, Scott Zhou: BFGS Iterates. Plotting iterates, in an interactive manner, of the celebrated BFGS method for the minimization of nonconvex and convex functions. Comparison of sage, jyscript/piscript, and our own python-based solutions.
Adam Getchell: Nonlinear Dynamics in SAGE. Illustrate and solve solutions to non-linear equations. Add basic cobweb diagrams. Wrap Maxima's CTensor package and compare speed with SAGE's Christoffel symbol calculation in calculus/tests.py.
Ryan Hoban: Geometric Structures. Using sage to draw geometric structures in the Hyperbolic plane. (Slides available here)
Steve Kieffer: Algebra sketches. Tools with which to produce sketches of a kind often drawn on blackboards to illustrate algebraic structures.
Avra Laarakker: Properties of Digit Sets and Dilation Matrices using Sage. Given a dilation matrix A, and a digit set D, want to see visually if a tiling of Z^n is possible.
Sébastien Labbé: Combinatorics on words.
- Use colors and @interact of sage to study equations on words.
- Use jyscript and jython to create a java applet to illustrate Christoffel words
Add gridlines support for show() in sage. Franco Saliola improved *a lot* my initial patch by changing it all (!!) and added many options to make it work like in Matematica. See Ticket #3825
Michael Lamoureux: EasyBalls. A 2D animation of colliding balls, maybe with gravity, maybe with E&M if I can get the 3D in there.
Jakub Marecek: Toy Integer Programming Solver. A very limited integer programming solver for instances with 3 variables, but complete with several primal heuristics in use today, and visualising the workings nicely. See here for more.
Aurel Meyer: Symmetry groups of polytopes. Graphics to illustrate that all symmetry groups of regular polytopes are finite Coxeter groups.
Zhivko Nedev: Encoding/Representing a class of combinatorial structures and making tools for their visualization and analysis. The comb. structure is a MINIMAL edge coloring of K_n, the complete graph, with the following properties:
- No two adjacent edges have the same color.
- Our coloring splits the set of edges of K_n into color classes; we require that every class has at least two members.
- The coloring is minimal by inclusion. That is, if we delete any subset of vertices of K_n (and any adjacent edges), then property 2 is violated - there will be at least one color class with one member.
Olesya Peshko: Intensity-based Image Segmentation Tool A simple segmentation tool which shows regions of the image (represented by a 2D or 3D matrix of pixel/voxel intensity values) in different colours for easy visualization of the structures shown in the image.
Ignacio Rozada: Python and PDE's. Solving and plotting numerical solutions to reaction-diffusion partial differential equations on growing domains; a comparison between scipy-matplotlib and matlab.
Véronique Sangin-Gagnon: Triangle Hyperbolic Group Graphics that show the representation of a hyperbolic group.
Matthew Stamps: Topological Methods for Determining Graph Colourablility Graph colouring problems are, in general, very difficult and often require a wide variety of mathematical techniques to solve. A number of topological methods for bounding the chromatic number of a graph have been developed over the last 30 years. I will introduce one such approach with the help of an interactive graph editor I developed in PiScript/JyScript this week.
