Topological Data Analysis: Theory and Applications

Daniel Carmody (UIUC Math)

Abstract: There are two algorithms which form the backbone of many applications of modern topological data analysis: the Mapper algorithm (Singh, Memoli, Carlsson), and persistent homology (Zomorodian, Carlsson). In this talk I'll introduce both algorithms, talk about the homotopy theory behind them, and give an application of each.

Categories of equivariant bifurcation problems

Stef Klajbor-Goderich (Illinois)

Abstract: We present a framework for studying equivariant bifurcation from relative equilibria of dynamical systems with Lie group symmetries. We will explain how equivariant bifurcation problems from relative equilibria are objects of a category internal to the category of topological abelian groups, or equivalently they are part of a $2$-term chain complex of topological abelian groups. This category is topologically equivalent to a category of equivariant bifurcation problems from "honest" equilibria. Thus, generic equivariant bifurcation problems from relative equilibria are equivalent to generic equivariant bifurcation problems from equilibria. We conclude with some observations on one way an analogous approach to Hamiltonian bifurcation problems could proceed.
