## Stuff I have done/been working on during Sage Dev 1

### LinBox 1.1.6 rc0

tried several ways of getting rid of gmp++ (required for debianization). ==> rely on Givaro's

integrated Sage's linbox_wrap interface in the LinBox library

fixing bugs in LinBox and Givaro,...

testing phase -> integration in sage-3.0.4

### Dense Linear Algebra over GF(2)

* Design of the Matrix Multiply based Echelon decomposition

- learned a lot on the design and tricks of M4RI
- already done
- TSRM,
- generalization of matrix windows and algorithms working on them, to any dimensions
- LQUP (close to done

- Still to be done
- extensive testing of some routines
- trtri (triangular inversion)
- trtrm (triangular triangular matmul)

### Algorithms for matrices overs Z and Zp[X]

- Theory: discussions and new insights with A Storjohann (computing Smith form transformation matrices)
- practice: new libraries

### Benchmark(et)ing

- parallel ATLAS and fflas-ffpack: 70 Gffops
lobbying for introduction of Tbops for benchmark**ing M4RI -> 1.2Tbops

### Playing with words

- some nicer prononciations for weird acronyms: M4RI and eMPIRe
