New release

GUDHI version 2.1.0

As a major new feature, the GUDHI library now offers persistence representations and cover complex (no Python interface yet).

Below is a list of changes made since Gudhi 2.0.1:

  • Cover complex (new package)
    • Nerves and Graph Induced Complexes are cover complexes, that provably contain topological information about the input data.
  • Representations of persistence diagrams (new package)
    • It contains implementation of various representations of persistence diagrams. It implements basic functionalities which are neccessary to use persistence in statistics and machine learning.
  • Simplex tree (new functions and interfaces)
    • Graph expansion with a blocker oracle.
    • Cech complex implementation example using CGAL mini spheres in fixed dimension.
    • Automatic dimension set mechanism.
  • Alpha complex (new function)
  • CGAL 4.11 compilation issue (bug fix)

  • Cubical complex (bug fix)
    • Perseus file read function.
    • Computations of incidence indices between cubes.
    • Missing periodic argument for the Python version.
  • Documentation
  • Utilities
    • Separate examples from utilities.

All modules are distributed under the terms of the GPL Open Source license (GNU General Public License v3 or later versions), but a commercial license is also possible.
