TITLE:              “Homology of simplicial complexes and convergence of Persistence Diagram as weighted point process”

ABSTRACT:      We first discuss an algorithm to compute the homology of a simplicial complex, and the algorithm to compute persistence homology of sequence of simplicial complex. (Then if time allows), a point process view on persistence diagram will be introduced, and the problem of the convergence of the persistence diagram as a weighted point process will be discussed, with connections to graphs.
