Cell Complex Neural Networks

  title={Cell Complex Neural Networks},
  author={Mustafa Hajij and Kyle Istvan and Ghada Zamzmi},
Cell complexes are topological spaces constructed from simple blocks called cells. They generalize graphs, simplicial complexes, and polyhedral complexes that form important domains for practical applications. We propose a general, combinatorial, and unifying construction for performing neural network-type computations on cell complexes. Furthermore, we introduce inter-cellular message passing schemes, message passing schemes on cell complexes that take the topology of the underlying space into…

An introduction to signal processing on (abstract) regular cell complexes, which provide a unifying framework encompassing graphs, simplicial complexes, cubical complexes and various meshes as special cases, and how appropriate Hodge Laplacians for these cell complexes can be derived.

Efficient Representation Learning for Higher-Order Data with Simplicial Complexes

It is shown that simplicial complexes with certain relaxations can more efficiently capture underlying higher-order structures than non-graph structure, regular graph, hypergraph, and traditional simplicial complex-based learning frameworks.


The preliminary results show that HSNs lead to a statistically significant improvement in the generalization error when compared to base models without high skip components.
