Lind 305
Matthew Wright (St. Olaf College)
This talk will summarize the basics of persistent homology, including Rips and Cech complexes, filtrations, homology, the structure theorem for persistence modules, and barcodes.
This introductory talk is designed to reinforce the mathematical foundations of persistent homology, preparing participants for the subsequent talks in this workshop.
