 * ''John Doe, Jane Deer'': '''Graphing antlers'''. The branching of the antlers of three year-old moose and cariboo form intricate mathematical patterns. We will produce an applet that illustrates the growth of these structures.  * ''Adrian Belshaw'': '''Unimodular Polynomials.''' Using Sage to draw unimodualr polynomials on the unit circle in the complex plane.

        1. Use colors and @interact of sage to study equations on words.
           [[http://wiki.sagemath.org/Days9Projects?action=AttachFile&do=get&target=Equations_on_words_with_color.sws|Equations_on_words_with_color.sws]] (Next version of [[http://code.google.com/p/sage-words/|sage-words package]] needed to run it!!)
        2. Use jyscript and jython to create a java applet to illustrate Christoffel words
           [[http://wiki.sagemath.org/Days9Projects?action=AttachFile&do=view&target=ChristoffelWord.py|ChristoffelWord.py]]
        3. 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 [[http://trac.sagemath.org/sage_trac/ticket/3825|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 [[http://wiki.sagemath.org/JakubMarecek|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:
        1. No two adjacent edges have the same color.
        2. Our coloring splits the set of edges of K_n into color classes; we require that every class has at least two members.
        3. 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.
