Since Klein’s work it is known that the (strict) upper bound on the number of inflections in real plane curves of degree \(d\) situation is \(d(d-2)\). But what about the average situation? Of course, one would …

singularities, biparametric persistence and cubical complexes

\(\def\Real{\mathbb{R}}\def\phd{\mathbf{P}H}\def\CAT{\mathtt{CAT}}\) The goal of this note is to define the biparametric persistence diagrams for smooth generic mappings \(h=(f,g):M\to\Real^2\) for smooth compact manifold (M). Existing approaches to multivariate persistence are mostly centered on the workaround of absence of reasonable algebraic theories for quiver representations for lattices of rank 2 or higher, or similar artificial obstacles. Singularities …
