Abstract. Persistent homology is a tool to discover and quantify topological structure in the form of persistence barcodes, persistence diagrams, or persistence landscapes. This talk will first introduce persistent homology and then describe the Euler Characteristic Transform (ECT). In addition, several applications to analyses of shapes and networks will be given, including many illustrations.
