Betti number signatures of homogeneous Poisson point processes
The Betti numbers are fundamental topological quantities that describe the k-dimensional connectivity of an object: β0 is the number of connected components and βk effectively counts the number of k-dimensional holes. Although they are appealing natural descriptors of shape, the higher-order Betti numbers are more difficult to compute than other measures and so have not previously been studied per se in the context of stochastic geometry or statistical physics. As a mathematically tractable...[Show more]
