Collective residencies / MATHEMATICS / Olot


From Monday, 27 February 2017 to Tuesday, 7 March 2017



Thierry Monteil is a French CNRS researcher in mathematics working in a computer science lab. His research interests include dynamical systems, mathematical billiards, discrete geometry, tilings, models of computation, random sampling. While his first interests for SageMath were related to mathematics, he spends most of his time in keeping Sage servers alive, maintaining Sage’s live USB key, building Sage binaries, and supporting newcomers.


During his stay in Olot, Thierry would like to: study the possibility to replace current Sage’s MILP backends by some, mainstream ones to lighten maintenance and collaborate with upstream, investigate the possibilities to uniformly sample such points in Sage, discuss with other participants and try to understand the way integer points get organized with each other. Barvinok noticed that some alignments could be of great help to grasp them in a thrifty way when the polytope is fat, but it is not clear how could that work for more shrunk polytopes (e.g. those included in a high-dimensional hypercube), progress on some Sage-specific tasks (packaging, publish thematic tutorials…).
