I guess you refer to the math functions listed in that page. It's
pretty specific stuff but it shouldn't be too hard to look that up.
You can also ignore those in your project if you want.

The idea is to select a subset of the missing functions which would be
reasonable to implement during the 3 months or so of the GSoC.
Probably the best way to get an idea about the complexity of the task
is to try and (start to) implement one of them right now, with tests
and all the like.

Good luck!
