For the project I propose working on creating a base class for the equations of motion generators in the physics module of the sympy library and add a Newton-Euler equation of motion generator. The benefits of creating a base class for equations of motion generators would include ease of adding additional equations of motion generators and making the code more compact and so speed enhancements and bug fixes will affect all generators simultaneously rather than having to be implemented on a per generator basis. In addition to this work I would also be working on increasing the speed/efficiency of the existing python code for the equations of motion generators since I will already be digging into their base functionality.
