Generalized persistence and applications

September 15 to September 19, 2014

at the

American Institute of Mathematics, Palo Alto, California

organized by

Anthony Bak and Dmitriy Morozov

Original Announcement

This workshop will be devoted to generalizations of persistent homology with a particular emphasis on finding calculable algebraic invariants useful for applications. Applications of persistence -- for example, signal processing, drug design, tumor identification, shape classification, and geometric inference -- rely on the classification of persistence via barcodes, geometrization of the space of barcodes via metrics or as an algebraic variety, and on efficient algorithms. Accordingly, this workshop will bring together theoriticians, computer scientist, and the users of computational topology.

The main topics for the workshop are:

Material from the workshop

A list of participants.

The workshop schedule.

A report on the workshop activities.

A list of open problems.
