And some more sparse ideas (requested by users):
- Implement max(axis=someaxis), mean(axis=someaxis), std(axis=someaxis),
and other similar methods
- Represent the LU factorization obtained via SuperLU as actual sparse
matrices rather than in SuperLU's internal format.
- Help with getting the support for 64-bit indices in, required for
very large sparse matrices (this work is mostly done, see
https://github.com/scipy/scipy/pull/442, but needs more testing
- Boolean operations
- Fix the callback function situation with the scipy.sparse.linalg
iterative solvers (different functions have different signatures)
And probably many more.
I think that even if there are two people working on improving the
situation, there will be well enough to do for a GSoC.
