Book Description

This book provides an accessible yet rigorous introduction to topology and homology focused on the simplicial space. It presents a compact pipeline from the foundations of topology to biomedical applications. It will be of interest to medical physicists, computer scientists, and engineers, as well as undergraduate and graduate students interested in this topic.





Features:







  • Presents a practical guide to algebraic topology as well as persistence homology






  • Contains application examples in the field of biomedicine, including the analysis of histological images and point cloud data


Table of Contents

1. Elements of Topology and Homology. 2. Persistent Homology of Images. 3. Recognizing Noise. 4. Image Segmentation. 5. Point Cloud Characterization.
