Description

Topological data analysis (TDA) is a multi-scale approach in computational topology used to analyze the ``shape” of large datasets by identifying which homological characteristics persist over a range of scales. In this talk, I will discuss how TDA can be used to extract physics from cosmological datasets (e.g., primordial non-Gaussianities generated by cosmic inflation) and to explore the structure of the string landscape.
