Editorial Reviews


"In my knowledge, it is the first book covering these topics."
Numerical Algorithms

"This authoritative, well-written, and highly focused book will explain to the reader the considerable power of topology. It is an eye-opener that I highly recommend."
George Hacken,

Book Description

Written by a computer scientist for computer scientists, this book teaches topology from a computational point of view, seeking to solve real problems that have topological aspects using computers. Such problems arise in many areas, such as computer graphics, robotics, structural biology, and chemistry. The author starts from the basics of topology, assuming no prior exposure to the subject, and moves rapidly up to recent advances in the area, including topological persistence and hierarchical Morse complexes, presenting algorithms and data structures when appropriate.

I will admit that this book is a little deep for me to appreciate fully but even so it is a fascinating look at applied topology.
