A short introduction to applied topology

Dr Sara Kališnik Verovšek (Brown University )

Frank Adams Room 1,

In the last two decades applied topologists have developed numerous methods for 'measuring' and building combinatorial representations of the shape of the data. The most famous example of the former is persistent homology and of the latter, mapper. I will briefly talk about both of these methods and show several successful applications. Time permitting I will talk about my work on making persistent homology easier to combine with standard machine learning tools.
