Google Summer of Code with SymPy


The Google Summer of Code results are out and I have been selected. My project, Improving SymEngine's Python Wrappers and SymPy-SymEngine Integration has been chosen and I’ll get to work with SymEngine and SymPy communities.

Exciting Times!

I really thank the community for accepting me as a freshman to work on a project. The community over at SymPy and SymEngine is really helpful and motivating.

My mentors are Sumith Kulal and Isuru Fernando, both of them being previous GSoC-ers at SymEngine (then CSymPy).

I’d also like to congratulate Ranjith, for getting a project under SymEngine and all others who have been selected under SymPy in general.

SymPy and SymEngine

SymPy is a Python library for symbolic mathematics. It aims to become a full-featured Computer Algebra System (CAS) while keeping the code as simple as possible in order to be comprehensible and easily extensible.

SymEngine is a fast symbolic manipulation library, written in C++. Optional thin wrappers allow usage of the library from other languages. It plans to serve as a symbolic backend for the SymPy CAS.

Looking forward to a great summer!
