Editorial Reviews

Review

"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, reviews.com

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.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
First I have to admit that I am an outsider regarding topology, but I am interested in this subject. I knew something about homotopy and topological defects in condensed matter physics, but computational topology is a whole lot difference because it deals with discrete data. I can assume I know nothing to start reading this book. Zomorodian introduced all necessary and essential concepts, including simplicial complexes and group theory, to bring us into the concept of homology, without going beyond what is enough. It is a good read.

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.
