Hello Fahad,
Thank you for your interest in this projectand your well-prepared application,the link to which is repeated in a coherentsingle-line text below.
Your proposal is technically strong andrepresents the project correctly and firmly.Your application also depicts you well as
a capable candidate. The way you describethe DD/QD wrappers and motivate theirimportance is good. I find this a very goodand complete proposal.
I ran through your code for the competency test.It is very good, visual, numerically correct,intuitive. It is actually informative and funto step through your code's return statementseach one of which provides more and morecorrect digits per iteration. Good job on that!
My name is Christopher Kormanyos and
I could or might be the potential mentor for thisparticular project. I've been working withBoost Math and Multiprecision as co-authorand co-maintainer for over 10 years and ama veteran 6-time Boost-GSoC mentor.

Kind regards, Chris

 Â  Greetings,

  My name is Syed Fahad, and I am a Electrical Engineering undergraduate
  student at National Institute of Technology, Srinagar.

  I have outlined a proposal for implementation of a new quad-double type
  based on David Bailey’s QD package. So the plan outline is to initially
  implement quad-double and double-double types as a wrapper around the
  QD packages qd_real and dd_real classes, and write the testing and
  benchmarking routines. Eventually, write a generic multiple-double
  class from scratch using the same algorithms as QD, and remove
  dependency on external libraries wherever possible.

  I would be very interested in feedback, questions, and comments. I am
  looking for supervisors/mentors to undertake this project as part of
  GSoC 2021.

  Apologies for the apparently late proposal submission. The link to my
  proposal is:


  Syed Fahad.
