apart from organizing Gsoc for Boost C++, I'm also mentor for uBLAS and I
proposed the topic on statistical functions.
Ideally, I expect 2 things are the very beginning from potential students:
(1) to do the competency test and return it when it looks perfect (it's not
a speed game but rather a quality game),
(2) to start working on a real fully-featured proposal, with description of
the work, plannig, ressources, etc...
You can send it to me directly because, as I said, I'm mentoring for uBlas
