Homology that Persists, or How to Find Holes in Cellphone Reception

Nick Zufelt

In this talk we'll discuss a topological tool called homology and hopefully get an understanding for what it's useful for and (roughly) how to compute it. Then we'll discuss ways to compute it when we're stuck with a less-than-optimal amount of information, arriving at a glimpse of a recently developed version of this tool called persistent homology.
