Prof. Francesco Vaccarino and Dr. Ulderico Fugacci
Period and Duration
April – June 2020 (20 hours/4 credits)
Topological Data Analysis (TDA) is a novel framework of techniques, mainly devoted to producing summaries of complex data sets. Based on algebraic topology, TDA has several applications and presents many open research problems. The course will start with a crash introduction to homology, followed by a thorough insight on persistent homology. Applications to real data and computational issues as well as an account of the existing software will be presented as well.
