Skrócony opis:

Modern topology has found its way through computations into applications. In this lecture we will discuss basic tools of topological data analysis: homology and persistent homology theory, discrete

Morse theory, Reeb graphs and mapper algorithms and more. In particular, a number of applications

of those techniques will be highlighted. We will show how those methods can be integrated with

statistics and machine learning. By doing so will lay down solid theoretical foundations and learn

to use the techniques in practice.

Prior knowledge of algebraic topology is desired. Ability to program in Python or R is required.

Pełny opis:

In this lecture we will discuss the following topics:

Topological foundations

1. Overview of topology. Mathematical and computational preliminaries.

2. Approximating shapes: Complexes as examples of simple shapes that provide combinatorial

representations of complex spaces. Examples: simplicial, singular, point cloud-based, cubical,

regular CW complexes, nerve complexes etc. Introduce efficient data structures to store those


3. Complexes from data: How to obtain complexes from trees, graphs etc (both abstract and

embedded). Relation to network theory, clustering coefficients and similar concepts.

Homotopy equivalence: homotopy equivalent to a sublevel set of single or multi varied functions.

Persistent homology

4. Chains and cycles as generalization of paths and cycles in graphs.

5. Z_2 (persistent) homology and cohomology, reduction algorithm.

6. Z-(co)homology and Smith Normal Form algorithm. Why persistence cannot be defined for non-field


7. Introduction to Discrete Morse Theory (DMT). Link of DMT and filtrations / persistent homology.

Iterated Morse complexes as a way to compute field (persistent) homology.

8. Computational homotopy groups - relation to group representation. How to get a simpler

representation using DMT.

9. Geometrical estimators of Rieman metric on a manifold, its reach and curvature from point clouds

Mapper-type algorithms

10. Reeb graphs, cover complexes and mapper type algorithms. Present it as a way to plot a relation

(x,f(x)) for x being a subsample of a high dimensional set.

11. Standard mapper

12. Ball mapper

Topology and Dynamics

13. Dynamical systems, topology, Wazewski principle, Conley index.


14. Brain function

15. Classification of neuron shapes, brain plasticity and response.

16. Classification of materials

17. Lung structure in COPD

18. Applications to economics and political sciences. Market prediction.
