This summer SymPy got 5 students, you can see their proposals and blogs here:
All are required to blog once a week, the deadline is Friday night PST, and I'll do so too.
This summer I will be at the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, applying hp-FEM to radial Schroedinger and Dirac equations as well as 1D Density Functional Theory. I need to check with the management there how much I am allowed to blog about it. If I am, I'll keep blogging once a week too about it. If not, then only about sympy. I am super excited about the job, as it is in the electronic structure field, which is what I always wanted to do.
