New families of simplicial filtration functors

  journal={arXiv: Algebraic Topology},
The so called \v{C}ech and Vietoris-Rips simplicial filtrations are designed to capture information about the topological structure of metric datasets. These filtrations are two of the workhorses in the field of topological data analysis. They enjoy stability with respect to the Gromov-Hausdorff (GH) distance, and this stability property allows us to estimate the GH distance between finite metric space representations of the underlying datasets. Via the concept of Gromov's curvature sets we…

Locally Persistent Categories And Metric Properties Of Interleaving Distances

This thesis presents a uniform treatment of different distances used in the applied topology literature. We introduce the notion of a locally persistent category, which is a category with a notion of



A Distance Between Filtered Spaces Via Tripods

A simplified treatment of stability of filtrations on finite spaces is presented and it is proved that this distance is intrinsic by constructing explicit geodesics between any pair of filtered spaces.

Some Properties of Gromov–Hausdorff Distances

A modified version of the Gromov–Hausdorff distance is studied which is motivated by practical applications and both prove a structural theorem for it and study its topological equivalence to the usual notion.

Persistence barcodes for shapes

This paper initiates a study of shape description and classification via the application of persistent homology to two tangential constructions on geometric objects, obtaining a shape descriptor, called a barcode, that is a finite union of intervals.

Combining Persistent Homology and Invariance Groups for Shape Comparison

A way to combine persistent homology with the use of G-invariant non-expansive operators defined on varPhi, where G is a group of self-homeomorphisms of X, is proposed.

Characterization, Stability and Convergence of Hierarchical Clustering Methods

It is shown that within this framework, one can prove a theorem analogous to one of Kleinberg (2002), in which one obtains an existence and uniqueness theorem instead of a non-existence result.

Improved Error Bounds for Tree Representations of Metric Spaces

This work considers an embedding of a metric space into a tree proposed by Gromov and obtains an improved additive distortion bound depending only on the hyperbolicity and doubling dimension of the metric.

Measuring shapes by size functions

The concept of deformation distance between manifolds is presented, a distance which measures the `difference in shape' of two manifolds and the link between deformation distances and size functions is pointed out.

Topological data analysis

Inverse problems can be defined as the area of mathematics that attempts to reconstruct a physical or mathematical object from derived data. Frequently, this means the evaluation of parameters or

A Course in Metric Geometry

Preface This book is not a research monograph or a reference book (although research interests of the authors influenced it a lot)—this is a textbook. Its structure is similar to that of a graduate
