"Reduction and Reconstruction of Complex Spatio-Temporal Data"
It is almost cliche at this point to note that high dimensional data is being collected from experiments or generated through numerical simulation at an unprecedented rate and that this rate will continue rising extremely rapidly for the foreseeable future. Our interest is in data associated with high dimensional nonlinear complex spatiotemporal dynamics. The focus of this talk is on our efforts to use persistent homology both as a dimension reduction technique and a technique for reconstructing structures of the underlying dynamical system. I will present some results associated with dynamics of fluid convection and will try to highlight open questions.
