Introduction to Persistent Homology

LIPIcs-SoCG-2016-72.pdf (0.8 MB)


This video presents an introduction to persistent homology, aimed at a viewer who has mathematical aptitude but not necessarily knowledge of algebraic topology. Persistent homology is an algebraic method of discerning the topological features of complex data, which in recent years has found applications in fields such as image processing and biological systems. Using smooth animations, the video conveys the intuition behind persistent homology, while giving a taste of its key properties, applications, and mathematical underpinnings.
