Classifying images often requires manual identification of qualitative features. Machine learning approaches including convolutional neural networks can achieve accuracy comparable to human classifiers but require extensive data and computational resources to train. We show how a topological data analysis technique, persistent homology, can be used to rapidly and reliably identify qualitative features in experimental image data. The identified features can be used as inputs to simple supervised…

A dataset of over 1.6 x 10^4 experimental images of Bose-Einstein condensates containing solitonic excitations is established to enable machine learning (ML) for many-body physics research, providing an opportunity for the data science community to develop more sophisticated analysis tools.



Kernel methods for interpretable machine learning of order parameters

Support vector machines (SVMs) are explored, which are a class of supervised kernel methods that provide interpretable decision functions and can learn the mathematical form of physical discriminators for a set of two-dimensional spin models: the ferromagnetic Ising model, a conserved-order-parameter Ising models, and the Ising gauge theory.

This work uses topological data analysis and machine learning to study a seminal model of collective motion in biology that describes agents interacting nonlinearly via attractive-repulsive social forces and gives rise to collective behaviors such as flocking and milling.

Photonic band structure design using persistent homology

The machine learning technique of persistent homology classifies complex systems or datasets by computing their topological features over a range of characteristic scales. There is growing interest

Ripser.py: A Lean Persistent Homology Library for Python

Topological data analysis (TDA) is a field focused on understanding the shape and structure of data by computing topological descriptors that summarize features as connected components, loops, and voids.

Quantitative and interpretable order parameters for phase transitions from persistent homology

Modern methods in computational topology are applied to the task of discovering and characterizing phase transitions, using persistent homology, which computes the births and deaths of individual topological features as a coarse-graining scale or sublevel threshold is increased, to summarize multiscale and high-point correlations in a spin configuration.

Experimental results show that topological methods are effective in predicting room occupancy during a time window and two methods are introduced to enable TDA to better analyze data with heterogeneous features that are sensitive to translation, rotation or choice of coordinates.
