[PAST EVENT] Mathematics Colloquium and EXTREEMS-QED Lecture: Yu-Min Chung (William & Mary)
Computational Topology is a young field in the algebraic topology. The main concept is to count the Betti numbers of a given complex. Tools from the computational topology has been proven successful in many scientific disciplines, such as fluid dynamics, biology, material science, climatology, etc. In this talk, we will give a brief introduction to computational topology, and its main tool—Persistent Homology. Moreover, we show applications to various noisy datasets arisen from cell biology and climatology.
