we would be very happy to find a student for the odeint project.

the best way to proceed is to learn and understand the odeint library.
It would start with working through the turorial, reading and
understanding the source code (not to detailed) and learn about implicit
routines. Odeint is heavily templatized, so good knowledge about
advanced C++ template techniques is a must. Finally you need to write a
proposal what exactly should be done within the GSOC. It is of advantage
to be as precise as possible in describing the specific algorithms and
abstractions and how to implement them.

We are always happy to discuss about odeint and to answer concrete
questions about the proposal.
