JAVA & COMPUTATIONAL GEOMETRY: SUMMER POSITION
I am seeking a student to do some Java implementations
this summer, possibly starting this Spring. The task is to
implement Java applets for existing C code. I will seek summer
support through the College's program by submitting a proposal by
February 13th. The stipend is $3300 for 10 weeks.
The programs to be implemented are all computational
geometry programs, those associated with the second edition of my
textbook. Because of the topic, it would be ideal to find someone
who will take CSC 274 Computational Geometry this Spring, although
that is not a necessity. However, I do need someone who already has
Lilla Zollei (from Mt. Holyoke) started this project last
summer. To see what I have in mind, look at the first-draft applet
(this can be reached also from my home page http://cs.smith.edu/~orourke).
Feel free to write Lilla at email@example.com to get a better feel
for the work.
This position is something less than a pure research fellowship;
it has elements of a programming job, in that there is a specific
task to be accomplished. However, it will be challenging
and I hope interesting, and the specific task should consume only
about half of the allotted time. I expect the remainder will lead
into research topics of a similar nature.
Because of the College's February 13th deadline, I need to
hear from students by Monday February 9th at the latest. Call (x3673),
write (firstname.lastname@example.org), or visit (McConnell 212) if you are
interested or have questions.
Summer Research Opportunities through Smith Summer
Anybody taking the Computational Geometry course, or with
equivalent background, who is interested in a summer research
experience through the Smith funded summer program, please
contact Ileana Streinu at
deadline for the Schultz
fellowship is February 13, 1998. This is ONLY for students
interested in research: it is NOT a summer job. The successful
candidate will work closely with me for 10 weeks during the
summer on a
problem related to my research in Computational Geometry,
possibly involving Java programming.
