Barcode embeddings for metric graphs

Steve Oudot and Elchanan Solomon

Algebraic & Geometric Topology 21 (2021) 1209–1266
Abstract

Stable topological invariants are a cornerstone of persistence theory and applied topology, but their discriminative properties are often poorly understood. We study a rich homology-based invariant first defined by Dey, Shi and Wang in 2015, which we think of as embedding a metric graph in the barcode space. We prove that this invariant is locally injective on the space of finite metric graphs and globally injective on a generic subset.
