for Boost.odeint we want to implement implict methods which require to
solve linear systems. I think a good starting point would be to study
the documentation of odeint and to familarize with the use cases of the
library. The next step is to have a look into the code of odeint and to
think about possible ways to abstract and implement implicit methods. Of
course a knowledge about the methods itself is necessary. Finally you
need to write an application for the GSOC with a detailed working plan
which is reviewed by the according mentors.

Maybe you can also write a few words about your programming skills.
odeint is a heavily templatized library and a deep knowledge of the C++
template system and template patterns is a must.
