Computers are everywhere. They are in our phones, cars, and microwaves. Some people believe that computers are smarter than humans, but this a misconception as computers only do what humans tell them to do. A computer may be better at adding than you, but trust me you are smarter! Software Developers and others tell computers what to do by writing programs, these are essentially list of instructions for the computer, we call these algorithms. Code is what makes up the software on your phone Beginning to Code at Any Age Lauren Miller 11/15/2017

Over this summer I participated in Google Summer of Code 2017 (GSOC).This was my second and final time participating. I was again coding for SAGE Mathematical Software System with Dr. Paul Fili and Dr. Ben Hutz as my advisors. This year my project was titled “Expanding the functionality of Dynamical Systems". My goal was to implement Well’s Algorithm, strengthen the numerical precision in canonical_height(), as well as implement reduced_form() for higher dimensions. For the first part of GSOC 2017 Final Post Rebecca Lauren Miller 08/22/2017

For the first part of GSOC I be implemented Wells' Algorithm. This can be found in Elliot Wells' paper Computing the Canonical Height of a Point in Projective Space. This algorithm gives us another way of measuring the canonical height of a mapping. However, Wells' Algorithm (WA) doesn't require you to factor the resultant. Calculating a the resultant is easy, but factoring the resultant can be hard, as factoring is hard. No this may sound odd, as we know every integer has unique prime GSOC- Implementing Wells' Algorithm Rebecca Miller 06/01/2017
