About the Workshop

In the last few years there has been an explosion of work and interest in computational algebraic topology, and in particular in persistent homology and its applications to data analysis.

By now there is an ever evolving sophisticated theory of persistent homology and its variants, some combining powerful tools from other branches of the mathematical sciences, such as statistics and probabilistic tools. The computation of persistent homology for large data sets remains a challenge but several software packages are available and have been tested on real, experimental data. This has led to interesting applications in fields ranging from computer vision to medicine, network analysis and cell biology.

The aim of the research school is to introduce the theory of the subject in three lecture series taking participants from the beginning to research level. An important additional lecture series will concentrate on computational aspects and applications. Practical sessions aim to ensure that participants will be able to use the software packages and perform computations.


  • Robert Ghrist: Foundations of persistent homology
  • Vidit Nanda: Discrete Morse Theory and cellular sheaf theory
  • Omer Bobrowski: Random methods in persistent homology
  • Michael Kerber: Applications and software development
  • A schedule will be available here
