Title: Applied Algebra in topological data analysis
Speaker(s): Ashleigh Thomas
Abstract: This talk will start with a brief introduction to persistent homology, a topological data analysis technique, and then explore some algebraic underpinnings of the topic. In particular, we will discuss how results from combinatorial commutative algebra contribute to both computational and geometric insight for this applied math subject, and how applications have in turn inspired new theoretical algebra research.
As always, there will be food and refreshments, as well as *gasp* socializing.
