* I have selected two tasks from GSoC projects[http://wiki.octave.org/Summer_of_Code_Project_Ideas].
** Implementation of Geometric integrators for Hamiltonian Systems. I have good experience in m-file scripting and can read mathematics papers comfortably. These Geometric integrators are essentially used for Discrete element methods and a number of Physics computation methods. I am studying the methods listed on the projects page and will come up with a list of tasks once I get familiarized with them.
** I would like to contribute to the mapping package, specifically the implementations of functions missing in Coordinates, Geodesy, Projections and Data Analysis. The list of functions in the map toolbox for Matlab are listed[http://www.mathworks.in/help/map/functionlist.html]. I have already contributed the 3D coordinate functions to this package[https://savannah.gnu.org/patch/index.php?8377].
I will prefer to work on mapping package if a mentor is interested in it and is available.
