(adjacency_matrix, max_edge_weight=None, min_dimension=0, max_dimension=inf, directed=True, filtration='max', coeff=2, approximation=None)¶ Compute persistent homology of a directed/undirected filtered flag complex.
From an adjacency_matrix and a filtration algorithm construct a filtered flag complex as a sequence of its cells associated to their filtration values and compute its persistent homology.
 Parameters
 adjacency_matrix2d ndarray or scipy.sparse matrix, required
Matrix representation of a directed/undirected weighted graph. Diagonal elements are vertex weights. The way zero values are handled depends on the format of the matrix. If the matrix is a dense
numpy.ndarray
, zero values denote zeroweighted edges. If the matrix is a sparsescipy.sparse
matrix, explicitly stored offdiagonal zeros and all diagonal zeros denote zeroweighted edges. Offdiagonal values that have not been explicitly stored are treated byscipy.sparse
as zeros but will be understood as infinitelyvalued edges, i.e., edges absent from the filtration. max_edge_weightint or float or
None
, optional, default:None
Maximum edge weight to be considered in the filtration. All edge weights greater than that value will be considered as infinitelyvalued, i.e., absent from the filtration. If
None
, all finite edge weights are considered. min_dimensionint, optional, default:
0
Minimum homology dimension to compute.
 max_dimensionint or np.inf, optional, default:
np.inf
Maximum homology dimension to compute.
 directedbool, optional, default:
True
If
True
, computes persistent homology for the directed filtered flag complex determined by adjacency_matrix. IfFalse
, computes persistent homology for the undirected filtered flag complex obtained by considering all weighted edges as undirected, and if two directed edges corresponding to the same undirected edge are explicitly assigned different weights and neither exceeds max_edge_weight, only the one in the upper triangular part of the adjacency matrix is considered. Therefore:if max_edge_weight is
numpy.inf
, it is sufficient to pass a (dense or sparse) uppertriangular matrix;if max_edge_weight is finite, it is recommended to pass either a symmetric dense matrix, or a sparse uppertriangular matrix.
 filtrationstring, optional, default:
'max'
Algorithm determining the filtration. Warning: if an edge filtration is specified, it is assumed that the resulting filtration is consistent, meaning that the filtration value of every simplex of dimension at least two should evaluate to a value that is at least the maximal value of the filtration values of its containing edges. For performance reasons, this is not checked automatically. Possible values are: [‘dimension’, ‘zero’, ‘max’, ‘max3’, ‘max_plus_one’, ‘product’, ‘sum’, ‘pmean’, ‘pmoment’, ‘remove_edges’, ‘vertex_degree’]
 coeffint, optional, default:
2
Compute homology with coefficients in the prime field \(\mathbb{F}_p = \{ 0, \ldots, p  1 \}\) where \(p\) equals coeff.
 approximationint or None, optional, default:
None
Skip all cells creating columns in the reduction matrix with more than this number of entries. Use this for hard problems; a good value is often
100,000
. Increase for higher precision, decrease for faster computation. IfNone
, no approximation is made and all cells are used. For more details, please refer to [1].
 Returns
 outdict of list
A dictionary with the following keyvalue pairs:
'dgms'
: list of ndarray of shape(n_pairs, 2)
A list of persistence diagrams, one for each dimension greater than or equal than min_dimension and less than max_dimension. Each diagram is an ndarray of size (n_pairs, 2) with the first column representing the birth time and the second column representing the death time of each pair.'betti'
: list of int Betti numbers at filtration value max_edge_weight, per dimension greater than or equal to min_dimension and less than max_dimension.'cell_count'
: list of int Cell counts (number of simplices) at filtration value max_edge_weight, per dimension greater than or equal to min_dimension and less than max_dimension.'euler'
: int Euler characteristic at filtration value max_edge_weight.
Notes
The input graphs cannot contain selfloops, i.e. edges that start and end in the same vertex, therefore diagonal elements of the input adjacency matrix store vertex weights.
