** April 16, 2018. ** * Samir Chowdhury *; Geodesics in the space of persistence diagrams Frechet means for distributions of persistence diagrams (In "Frechet Means for Distributions of Persistence Diagrams", one of the main results is that the space of persistence diagrams equipped with a certain L2 norm has nonnegative curvature in the sense of Alexandrov. An implicit claim in the proof of this theorem is that all geodesics in this space arise as a straight line interpolation. We supply a detailed proof of this claim, using results about the convexity of Lp norms.
