Abstract: 

Persistent homology is a novel tool in data analysis executed by first assigning Vietoris-Rips complexes onto data and then compute the homology. In this talk we explore how finite group actions have the potential to improve existing persistent homology algorithms. We look at an interesting class of Vietoris-Rips complexes called the Regular Cyclic Graphs and see how ideas of group actions can be applied to it.
