TitleGeometric Approaches on Persistent Homology

Time/Location11am – 12 pm, JO 3.516

Abstract: Persistent Homology is one of the most important techniques used in Topological Data Analysis. In first half of the talk, we give an introduction to the subject. Then, we study the persistent homology output via geometric topology tools. In particular, we give a geometric description of the term “persistence”, and discuss its relations to Gromov’s filling radius. This is joint work with Henry Adams. The talk will be non-technical, and accessible to graduate students.

Coffee will be served at 10:30am in the alcove outside FO 2.406
