This sketch shows that the usual generating function based capacities have an interpretation in the language of persistent homology as persistences of certain homology classes in the persistence module formed by the corresponding generating function homology groups. This viewpoint suggests various new invariants, in particular a $\mathbb{Z}_k$-equivariant capacity which can be used to prove orderability of lens spaces, proved by Milin (2008) using contact homology and by Sandon (2010) using… 

Bounds on spectral norms and barcodes

We investigate the relations between algebraic structures, spectral invariants, and persistence modules, in the context of monotone Lagrangian Floer homology with Hamiltonian term. Firstly, we use

Approximation of Generating Function Barcode for Hamiltonian Diffeomorphisms

Persistence modules and barcodes are used in symplectic topology to define various invariants of Hamiltonian diffeomorphisms, however numerical methods for computing these barcodes are not yet well

Autonomous Hamiltonian flows, Hofer’s geometry and persistence modules

We find robust obstructions to representing a Hamiltonian diffeomorphism as a full k-th power, k≥2\documentclass[12pt]{minimal} \usepackage{amsmath} \usepackage{wasysym} \usepackage{amsfonts}

Viterbo conjecture for Zoll symmetric spaces

We prove a conjecture of Viterbo from 2007 on the existence of a uniform bound on the Lagrangian spectral norm of Hamiltonian deformations of the zero section in unit cotangent disk bundles, for

Persistence modules with operators in Morse and Floer theory

We introduce a new notion of persistence modules endowed with operators. It encapsulates the additional structure on Floer-type persistence modules coming from the intersection product with classes



Equivariant homology for generating functions and orderability of lens spaces

In her PhD thesis [M08] Milin developed a Z k-equivariant version of the contact homology groups constructed in [EKP06] and used it to prove a Z k-equivariant contact non-squeezing theorem. In this

Persistent Homology of Filtered Covers

We prove an extension to the simplicial Nerve Lemma which establishes isomorphism of persistent homology groups, in the case where the covering spaces are filtered. While persistent homology is now

The Structure and Stability of Persistence Modules

This book is a comprehensive treatment of the theory of persistence modules over the real line. It presents a set of mathematical tools to analyse the structure and to establish the stability of such

Contact Homology, Capacity and Non-Squeezing in R^2n x S^1 via Generating Functions

Starting from the work of Bhupal, we extend to the contact case the Viterbo capacity and Traynor's construction of symplectic homology. As an application we get a new proof of the Non-Squeezing

Contact non-squeezing at large scale in ℝ2n × S1

We define a ℤk-equivariant version of the cylindrical contact homology used by Eliashberg–Kim–Polterovich [11] to prove contact non-squeezing for prequantized integer-capacity balls B(R) × S1 ⊂ ℝ2n ×
