Persistent Homology for images

Persistent homology has been widely applied to point clouds and simplicial complex. Here, it is applied to images, combined with machine learning to learn geometric features, or through a more theoretical point of view, to study the dual relationship between the most common cubical complexes built from images.

From Trees to Barcodes and Back Again

By defining an equivalence class on the space of barcodes, one can identify the classes to the symmetric group. This opens the door to a more combinatorics and geometric group theory point of view of this space, and its relation to the space of trees is captivating.
