Sage Days 45 Coding Sprint Projects

This is the project page for Sage Days 45, and more generaly ICERM's semester on Automorphic Forms, Combinatorial Representation Theory and Multiple Dirichlet Series.

Below is a list of proposed projects. You are welcome to add more projects or add yourself as participant for existing projects! The following feature request guidelines may help you specify useful and realistic project descriptions; if you are at ICERM, you are more than welcome to come discuss about those with the Sage fans there!

Extended affine Weyl groups, affine Iwahori Hecke algebras, and nonsymmetric Macdonald polynomials

Dan Bump, Anne Schilling, Mark Shimozono, Nicolas Thiéry, Viviane Pons

See Trac Ticket 14102.

This project was started during Sage Days 40 by Dan Bump, Dan Orr, Anne Schilling, Mark Shimozono, and Nicolas Thiéry and preliminary patches are in the sage-combinat queue (see extended_affine_weyl_groups_sd40.patch and affine_iwahori_hecke_algebras.patch).

Viviane Pons: I have some programs already in sage-combinat on non symmetric Macdonald polynomials, see trac_6629_abstract_ring_of_multivariate_polynomials_with_several_bases_vp.patch

Viviane : patch is now on trac and ready to be reviewed !
