Talk Title: Persistent Homology

Event: Graduate Student Geometry and Topology Seminar

Where: Department of Mathematics, Michigan State University

Date: April 13, 2017

Abstract: Persistent homology is a method for computing topological features of a space at different spatial resolutions. In 2004, Zomorodian and Carlsson figured out an algorithm to compute persistent homology when the coefficient ring is a field F. I will mostly be focusing on this. It is supposed to be a very basic talk.
