Sage Days 11 Projects
These are projects for Sage Days 11.
Native Implementation of Dokchitser's Algorithm
People: Craig Citro, William Stein, Sourav Sen Gupta, Michael Rubinstein, Rishi Kesh, Gonzalo Tornaria
http://sage.math.washington.edu/home/was/tmp/dokchitser.tar.bz2
Lots of progress. Lots and lots to do. Mostly Sourav.
Cython Wrapping of Rubinstein's Lcalc
People: William Stein, Sourav Sen Gupta, Michael Rubinstein, Craig Citro, Rishi
 Michael Abshoff  update to latest version of lcalc, i.e. the 1.2 release
Screencasts, Documentation, and Video Interviews
People: Timothy Clemans
Other projects instead...
Trac Tickets 3580 and 4249
People: John Voight, Craig Citro, someone with a system similar to Cremona's
Totally DONE! Real root finding subtleties  proof = False?
Work on IPython topics that affect Sage directly
People: Fernando Perez, William Stein to provide list of topics and feedback.
(tricky  startup time issues!!) %timeit isn't preparsed. See https://bugs.launchpad.net/ipython/+bug/296116
 mabshoff  upgrade to latest release (get 0.9.1  has "ipython1"; missing snippet of code to make this "usable" for idiots).
 $HOME/sage.init  wthread issue; problem is wthread has to be first option. Solution: sage should kludge around.
way nicer writing out of history as an option (seg faulting, crashing, invidual history overlap): personally, Stein, would be happy basically having the option to have a *merged* history; basically I view the history as a "set"ish thing, so I don't care about the history being complete and linear for each session. Watch out about history switching for debugging  have a temp file with history for just this session. See https://bugs.launchpad.net/ipython/+bug/296113 and https://bugs.launchpad.net/ipython/+bug/296114
 (progress, startup time issues) annoying valgrind crap?
(done) exception on startup of sage look lame. See https://bugs.launchpad.net/ipython/+bug/295798
 (progress) testing framework/robustness improvements
test ATLAS 3.9.4 with NumPy, SciPy and Sage
People: Michael Abshoff, Fernando Perez
didn't do anything yet.
Enumeration of relative quadratic extensions
People: John Voight, Jon Hanke
????
High Level Memory Profiling and Modular Forms Memory Caching Issues
People: Michael Abshoff  understanding of guppy and muppy ought to be helpful; William Stein
wrote a talk.
have a demo.
Optimize Modular Symbols
People: Craig Citro, William Stein
 tell us what sucks
 Jon Hanke came up with some nice examples of issues, and is doing a lot more. Coming along.
Quadratic forms
People: Jon Hanke, Craig Citro, Gonzalo Tornaria, Michael Abshoff
Lay some groundwork. What is out there? E.g., Hanke's code, etc.
 substantial progress; cleanup going on; splitting good and bad; start reviewing good.
 general quadratic modules/lattices class
 goal: in Sage before Sage Days UGA.

Optimize sage br
People: Gonzalo Tornaria, Craig Citro, David Harvey, (Robert Bradshaw)
For the Cython side of things, see http://trac.sagemath.org/sage_trac/ticket/4480
 add two tickets
 substantial progress: order(s) of magnitude speedup
 excellent progress
Elliptic Curves and Drinfeld Modular Forms over Function Fields
People: Chris Hall and Sal Butt
char >= 5, GF(q)[t]
 goal: Lseries
 in progress
