MATH 273B Advanced Techniques in Computational Mathematics
- Applied and Computational Topology
TTh 2:00pm-3:20pm, APM 2402.
- This course is relevant to engineers, scientists, and mathematicians
with an interest in the applications of topology to data science,
dynamical systems, and computational simulations. The application areas
addressed will be tailored to the interests of the course participants.
- This course will survey computational techniques based on topology,
including persistent homology, de Rham cohomology, and Morse theory, with
applications to the physical sciences and engineering. Particular
attention will be paid to the question of how one can efficiently compute
these topological invariants in practical applications.
