Title:Topological Network Topology
Seminar:MASS Colloquium
Speaker:Robert Ghrist, University of Pennsylvania
Abstract:
Networks are ubiquitous: communications networks, social networks, sensor networks, biological networks, etc., abound. "Network topology" is, usually, a misnomer, connoting graph theory. This talk will, via simple examples, argue for a topological interpretation of networks that, via algebraic topology, reveals classes of information hidden within networks around us.
