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:

A recent article on the use of persistent homology in studying flu strains is:

Computer packages for implementing persistent homology computations are include:

  • Javaplex (requires MatLab or other Java based system)
  • Perseus (requires C++ compiler)

Applied Topology is an online repository for conferences, software and article releases, and openings.
