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

As a mathematician, who also happens to work in a library, I have found myself working in the children's department a few times. When in Rome do as the Romans do, so I started to read of zombies and pirates and princesses. I enjoyed myself more than I like to admit. That’s when I started to wonder... I wonder what books they have on math... I wonder what books they have on math history. Finding the 510’s, where math books are in the Dewey decimal system, I began to peruse.

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
