We could use students to:

1 work on the reference volume of the book

  visit each algebra file and make a complete listing of all of
  the function signatures with boiler-plate documentation (e.g.
  the types in the argument lists). construct an index for the book.

2 work on the tutorial volume of the book

  choose a textbook (linear algebra for dummies?) or an online
  course (linear algebra at and develop a tutorial
  based on the source material using axiom.

3 work on the windows version of the browser and graphics

  work out the lisp code necessary to read browser pages and
  render them as TK pages

4 work on the wiki version of the browser and graphics

  work out the wiki code to use the browser pages directly in
  the wiki. figure out how to get the wiki to accept the browser
  page syntax.

5 develop regression testing

  create a systematic way of regression testing and implement it
6 develop test cases

  create a domain-by-domain set of reference test cases with
  explanations, boundary cases, etc.

7 test code

  use the handbook of curves and surfaces to comprehensively test
  the graphics routines.

8 drag-and-drop

  given a literate program that includes axiom algebra code and
  some text figure out how to "drag and drop" the paper onto axiom.
  that is, figure out how to get the code in the right place, the
  makefile to accept the code, the paper in the right place and
  integrated into the documentation

9 dvi organization

  work out an automated way to organize the hundreds of dvi files
  so they can be browsed.

10 booklet mechanism

   pamphlets use random names in code chunks. develop a full URL
   syntax and create a booklet mechanism. That is, one should be
   able to define a chunk as::


   and have something inserted inline or ::


   and have something inserted inline.

11 semantic markups

   develop latex macros for marking "concepts" in latex files
   mark up literate programs and math papers and create a concept
   index, similar to the word index mechanism latex now uses

12 etc
