AbstractWe study the fundamental tools of topological data analysis: Persistent homology, persistence modules and barcodes. Our goal is to read and understand parts of the paper "Principal Component Analysis of Persistent Homology..." by Vanessa Robins and Kate Turner (ArXiV 1507.01454v1).
ObjectiveTo get familiar with the basic concepts of topological data analysis and see some applications thereof.
LiteratureHerbert Edelsbrunner and John L. Harer: Computational Topology, An Introduction. AMS 2010
Prerequisites / NoticeParticipants are supposed to be familiar with singular homology.
