Announcement - Looking for New Abelfunctions Owners

Sep 12, 2016

As much as I would like to keep hacking on Abelfunctions I doubt that I will
have time to do so once I have a “real job”. Too many student projects
evaporate into the ether. Therefore, I am hoping someone will take the
mantle of this project and guide it to a better state.

Though not required, since I assume you’re a bright mathematician, but
experience in the following would help in developing for Abelfunctions:
(in order of importance)

Python / Sage

Object-Oriented programming

Cython

git / GitHub

Of course, an appropriate mathematical background is needed. This project
performs calculations that use the following:

algebraic geometry / planar curves

numerical analysis

computational geometry

special functions (in particular, the Riemann theta function)

Help

If you are interested in taking on this project I would be happy to meet
with you via Facetime, Google Hangouts, Skype, or whatever your preferred
video chat + screensharing method. I tried to document my code well but as
some Ph.D. research projects the rush of arriving at certain checkpoints
causes documentation and clarity take a hit while searching for correctness.

Additionally, it’s not like I will cease to exist. I will be around to offer
the occasional guidance and opinion.
