I am applying for Google Summer of Code, 2015. It is an annual program sponsored by Google, that pays students to contribute to open source organizations of their choice. My application involves two symbolic computation libraries - Sympy and CSymPy, the former written in Python and the latter in C++. CSymPy is meant to be a fast cousin of Sympy and can be used with optional wrappers.
I am proposing to implement fast series expansion in CSymPy and Sympy. Sympy already has series expansion, but suffers from speed issues and lack of a class structure. You can look at my full proposal here
I will use this blog to write about my GSoC experience, if I am selected.
I welcome your suggestions.
