Hello all! I would like to know if there is some list of algorithms that are not implemented in Sage and that are important (for ex. because of its speed). I think that it would be great for contributors. I believe the greatest things are mostly free and that Sage is very good example of this. Lot of algorithms in Sage are the fastest (when I compare it with 'ma' softwares) and that is really amazing that something free and open source for everyone can do it! For this reason I would like to contribute to this project and think that the list of important algorithms that arent still implemented in Sage would be great 'to do list' for contributors. Thanks, Martin

Of course the list of algorithms not included in Sage is infinite, and which ones are important depends on who you ask. :-) Probably the best thing to do is take some area you are interested in and find the first thing that is missing. If you had a list of important algorithms it shouldn't be too hard to see which are in Sage and which aren't.

There is a list of tickets that need work if you really aren't sure or just want to know what other people think is important. In my opinion going through that list and getting things reviewed, marked as won't fix etc. would actually be more helpful than a list of algorithms to implement, but it's tedious work.
