Title: Topological Integral Transforms with Applications to Sensing

Abstract: This talk will outline a topological approach to constructing novel integral transforms. The basis for these methods is a blend of combinatorial and homological methods fused into an integration theory with respect to Euler characteristic. Using this as a starting point, several integral transforms will be described with applications given to problems of data aggregation over networks of sensors. Back to seminar
