Aug 30. Woojin Kim ; Multiscale analysis of dynamic metric spaces via Cosheaves.

Sep 6. Planning for Autumn 2018 and Spring 2019.

Sep 13. Ling Zhou ; Interval Decomposition of Infinite Zigzag Persistence Modules

Sep 20. Anastasios Stefanou ; "Dynamics on Categories" to include introductory material on monoidal actions on categories, also categories with a flow and equivariant functors, and also methods from TDA that can be realized as such. "The Functoriality of the Interleaving Distance" where I will define the interleaving distance and show it is an extended pseudometric, show that flow equivariant functors are 1-Lipschitz and give examples of interleaving distances and stability results from TDA along the way.

Sep 27. Ying Yin ; Persistent homology on teeth classification, Osman Okutan ; Hyperbolic Metric Spaces 1

Oct 4. Zhengchao Wan ; Geometry of the Space of Phylogenetic Trees

Oct 11. Autumn Break

Oct 18. Ying Yin ; Persistent homology on teeth classification, Anastasios Stefanou ; "The Geometry of Phylogenetic Networks" where I will discuss a recent result that the $\ell^infty$-cophenetic metric on phylogenetic trees can be realized as an interleaving distance and discuss future directions for research, e.g. define properly a category of phylogenetic networks and devising a metric for comparison for these structures which is an important open problem in computational biology.

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. )
