Note : If you’re viewing this on Planet SymPy and Latex looks weird, go to the WordPress site instead. Prof. Sukumar came up with the following optimization idea : Consider equation 10 in Chin et. al . The integral of the inner product of the gradient of and need not be always re-calculated. This is… Continue reading Week 4 Report(June 18 – 24) : Dynamic Programming
Ondrej and Prof.Sukumar were quite busy this week, but eventually they reviewed both the notebook and code. Their review was quite insightful as it brought to surface one major optimization problem which I’ll discuss below. I also encountered a major issue with the already defined Polygon class. Firstly, there were some minor issues : I… Continue reading Week 3 Report(June 11 – 17): Implementing suggestions
Note : If you’re viewing this on Planet SymPy and Latex looks weird, go to the WordPress site instead. The 2D use case works perfectly although there are limitations. The current API and method-wise limitations are discussed here. That lone failing test was caused due to typecasting a Python set object to a list. Sets… Continue reading Week 2 Report(June 3 – June 10) : Working Prototype, Improving functionality.
As per the timeline, I spent the week writing a prototype for the 2D use case. Here is the current status of the implementation. At the time of writing this blog post, the prototype mostly works but fails for one of the test cases. I haven’t used a debugger on it yet but will get… Continue reading Week 1 Report(May 24 – June 2) : The 2D prototype
After reaching home on May 18, I decided not to waste any more time and contacted my mentor(Ondrej Certik). He suggested that we should have a discussion with Prof.N.Sukumar about the project and develop a plan for the summer. After the Skype call, a basic timeline was made by Ondrej. It was decided that firstly… Continue reading Week 1 : The Beginning
I have been accepted to work on an open source summer project under the flag of GSoC’17. My work will be implementing a module in SymPy capable of efficient integration of functions over arbitrary (i.e. both convex and non-convex) polytopes. Various techniques of solving this problem of numerical integration have been discovered, but most of… Continue reading Google Summer of Code 2017 : SymPy
