This page is for notes and materials for my mini-course on topological data analysis and persistent homology.
Good surveys of persistent homology and its uses in geometry and data analysis include:
- Carlsson – Topology and Data (2009)
- Edelsbrunner, Harer – Survey of Persistent Homology (2008)
- Weinberger – What is persistent homology? (2011)
- Otter, Porter, Tillmann, Grindrod, and Harrington – A Roadmap for the Computation of Persistent Homology (2016)
A recent article on the use of persistent homology in studying flu strains is:
Computer packages for implementing persistent homology computations are include:
Applied Topology is an online repository for conferences, software and article releases, and openings.
