Having completed an applied Mathematics project last year, I wanted to explore a CS specific field. Hence I decided to apply for a parallelization project under CERN-HSF. On April 23 of this year, I was accepted into the project. However, I have failed the second evaluations due to my main PR#2236 not being able to… Continue reading GSoC 2018 : An abrupt end
Final evaluations are due in a day and GSoC 2017 will soon come to an end. Here is the link I submitted for the final report -> GSoC 2017 Report. The last three weeks I have been wrapping up the 3D use case, writing its test cases and documentation. The only deliverables which remain :… Continue reading Final Report : End of GSoC 2017
This week I continued work on PR#13082. The last implementation left for the 3D case is the hyperplane representation. For example, the user can express the list of facets of the polytope by a list of points for each facet or a list of hyperplane parameters(a tuple for each facet). p1 = [(0, 1, 0),… Continue reading Week 10 Report(August 4 – August 10) : More functionality for 3D case.
This week I returned to college and quite some time was spent in setting up the room, registering for courses, etc. Also, I have 27 hours a week of classes from now on which is okay considering that some of my batch-mates have 31 – 32 hours/week. The good thing is that the major part… Continue reading Week 9 Report(June 27 – August 3) : Basic 3D prototype.
So, I wrapped up PR#12931 on handling implicit intersections. I’ve to clean it up a bit more as suggested by Christopher. I plan to implement the Bentley-Ottmann Algorithm and the case with intersecting polygons with more than two sides passing through same point in separate PRs. Now, about the 3D case I initially thought about… Continue reading Week 8 Report(July 18 – July 26): Beginning 3D case
I had initially planned to begin implementing the 3D case this week. But I wanted closure for the 2D case. Currently there is no support for implicit intersections for polygons. One could make the failing tests pass by not raising an error when such a polygon is encountered, but obviously that wouldn’t be a good… Continue reading Week 7 Report(July 11 – July 17) : Implicit Intersections
I finished the 2D implementation this week. I’m very thankful to Gaurav Dhingra(a fellow senior GSoC student) for taking the time to review the pull request and suggest some really good changes. This is the link to it –> #12673. The last issue with the 2D case was the case of implicit intersecting polygons not… Continue reading Week 6 Report(July 4 – July 11) : 2D complete, time to begin 3D
