6514. Computational Topology

3.00 credits

Prerequisites: Prerequisite: MATH 5310 and 5311. Open to graduate students in the CSE program, others with permission. (RG3085)

Grading Basis: Graded

Topology has traditionally generalized concepts of real analysis to metric spaces and set axioms. The new field of computational topology has great potential for encompassing abstractions to unify domain-specific techniques now used in computational geometry, geometric modeling, visualization, image processing, engineering analyses and molecular simulation. The course will include perspectives from traditional topology and show how these need to be modified for realistic use in modern computing environments. Topics and emphases will vary.
