Introduction Why we need homology ? Connected Components =2 Holes=20
Tunnels=1059, Cavities=0

Simplices 0-Simplex Point ∆0 1-Simplex Line Segment ∆1 2-Simplex
Triangle ∆2 3-Simplex Tetrahedron ∆3 Persistence Homology

Simplicial Complex A simplicial complex К is a finite collection of set of simplices that satisfies the following conditions: Every face of a simplex of К is also in К . The intersection of any two simplices of К is a face of each of them. . Vertices are 0 faces, edge are 1 face etc Add equations К={(1,2,3) (1,2),(1,3),(2,3),(2,4),(3,4) (1),(2),(3),(4)} Invalid Simplicial complex Simplicial complex Persistence Homology J. R. Munkres, Elements of Algebraic Topology, p. 7,

Chain Complex Let К ={σik} be a simplicial complex with simplices σik, where k denotes the simplex dimension. A simplicial k-chain is a formal sum of k-dimensional simplices C0=A+B C1=a+b+c Persistence Homology

Boundary Operator The boundary operator ∂, acting on simplices is a following map Boundaries have no boundaries Persistence Homology Algebraic Topology, Hatcher

Cycles and Boundaries A chain is a cycle when its boundary is zero
The cycles form a subgroup Zk(К) of chain group Ck(К), which is the kernel of boundary operator (Z is because of german word of cycle) Zk(К) =ker(∂k) The elements in Im(∂k+1) are called boundaries The k-boundary group of К is the set of boundaries of (k+1)-chains in К, i.e. Its the Image of the (k+1)-chain group Bk(К)= ∂(Ck+1(К)) Persistence Homology

Finally Homology!! The homology group is the quotient vector space of cycles over boundaries Hk (К)= Zk(К) / Bk(К) Suppose that V= {(x1,x2,x3)} and W= {(x1,0,0)}, then quotient vector space V/W (read as " mod") is isomorphic to {(x2,x3)}=R2 Persistence Homology Intelligent Perception, Computer Vision Primer

Cycles and Boundaries 0-Simplex = {A,B,C} 0-Simplex = {A,B,C}
2-Simplex = empty 0-Simplex = {A,B,C} 1-Simplex = {a,b,c} 2-Simplex = {f} ∂2f=a+b+c H1=Z1/B1=0 Persistence Homology

Computing Homology Cycles which generate the n dimensional holes are called homology generators Agoston Algorithm(1976) Build incidence matrices Reduce to smith normal form Compute homology Generators Computing Homology Group Generators of Images Using Irregular Graph Pyramids, S. Peltier Persistence Homology

Computing Homology For large no. of vertices Agoston algorithm becomes computationally very expensive Solution: Build a pyramid It reduces no. of cells Apply Agoston Algorithm at top level Generators fit nicely on borders Computing Homology Group Generators of Images Using Irregular Graph Pyramids, S.

The problem of assigning simplices to point cloud
Persistence Homology

Delauny Triangulation
For a set P of points in the plane, a triangulation DT(P) such that no point in P is inside the circumcircle of any triangle in DT(P). The DT(P) is unique if all the points are in general position in e.g in 2-dimensional space No three points are on same line No four points are on same circle Persistence Homology

Application (Terrain Model)
Set of data points A  R2 Height ƒ(p) defined at each point p in A How can we most naturally approximate height of points not in A? Persistence Homology * Delauny Triangulations by Glenn Eguchi

Alpha Shapes Given a finite point set S, and a real parameter alpha: The set of all real numbers alpha leads to a family of shapes capturing the intuitive notion of "crude'' versus "fine'' shape of a point set Persistence Homology

Alpha Shapes Continued.....
For sufficiently large alpha, the alpha shape is identical to the convex hull of S For α=0, it reduces to point cloud Persistence Homology Three Dimensional Alpha Shapes, Herbert Edelsbrunner

Filtration A persistence complex C is a family of chain complexes C*i , together with a chain map Persistence Homology Computing Persistent Homology, Afra Zomorodian

Persistence Persistence is a measure of importance of an n-cycle defined to be the difference between the  for which the cycle is created, to the  it is filled by adding an (n+1)-simplex. Persistence Homology Persistent Homology of Complex Networks, D. Horak

Persistence of complex Networks
New approach to study highly interconnected dynamic systems such as scale free networks (e.g. Airline traffic routes) Persistence of the complex gives important information about robustness of the network against addition or removal of nodes Persistence Homology Persistent Homology of Complex Networks, D. Horak

Persistence continued
Cycles which have low persistence can be regarded as topological noise Persistence Homology Barcodes: The Persistent Topology Of Data, Robert Ghrist

Protein Structure Protein function is in part determined by its shape
This shape allows it to bind to a target molecule One important and challenging goal of proteomics, the study of proteins, is the identification and characterization of protein binding sites. Protein data bank website contain 34,303 structures Persistence Homology Applications of Computational Homology, Master thesis, Marshall University

Protein Structure Shapes such as letter “C” may nearly be like a circle, but not quite, so we want to capture such structures as well Hand like structures (TAQ Polymerase) can not be perceived by just looking at the betti numbers of the structure Amount of time a cycles is created and detroyed can give important features Persistence Homology

Another application!!! Astronomers have measured the location of about galaxies, each one represented by a point in three-dimensional space. It appears that a large number of galaxies are located on or close to sheet-like and to lament-shaped structures. In other words, large subsets of the points are distributed in a predominantly two- or one-dimensional manner Persistence Homology Topology for computing, Afra Zomorodian, p-228 M D Dyksterhouse. An alpha-shape view of our universe.

Summary Homology classifies objects based on their connectivity and n-dimensional holes Computing homology using pyramids produces nice generators and is computationally inexpensive than previous methods Alpha shapes provide new tool in analyzing topological properties of the objects Current research of alpha shapes and persistence homology has mostly focused on molecular biology, but its application in other fields is growing fast.
