Batan, Mehmet Ali
Persistent homotopy is one of the newest algebraic topology methods in order to understand and capture topological features of discrete objects or point data clouds (the set of points with metric defined on it). On the other hand, in algebraic topology, the Van Kampen Theorem is a great tool to determine fundamental group of complicated spaces in terms of simpler subspaces whose fundamental groups are already known. In this thesis, we show that Van Kampen Theorem is still valid for the persistent fundamental group. Finally, we show that interleavings, a way to compare persistences, among subspaces imply interleavings among total spaces.

Finashin, Sergey (2002-01-01)
For any k⩾3, I construct infinitely many pairwise smoothly non-isotopic smooth surfaces homeomorphic to a non-singular algebraic curve of degree 2k, realizing the same homology class as such a curve and having abelian fundamental group ⧹ . This gives an answer to Problem 4.110 in the Kirby list (Kirby, Problems in low-dimensional topology, in: W. Kazez (Ed.), Geometric Topology, AMS/IP Stud. Adv. Math. vol 2.2, Amer. Math. Soc., Providence, 1997).

Persistent homology is an algebraic method for understanding topological features of discrete objects or data (finite set of points with metric defined on it). In algebraic topology, the Mayer Vietoris sequence is a powerful tool which allows one to study the homology groups of a given space in terms of simpler homology groups of its subspaces. In this thesis, we study to what extent does persistent homology benefit from Mayer Vietoris sequence.

FORCED HARMONIC RESPONSE ANALYSIS OF NONLINEAR STRUCTURES USING DESCRIBING FUNCTIONS
TANRIKULU, O; KURAN, B; Özgüven, Hasan Nevzat; IMREGUN, M (1993-07-01)
The dynamic response of multiple-degree-of-freedom nonlinear structures is usually determined by numerical integration of the equations of motion, an approach which is computationally very expensive for steady-state response analysis of large structures. In this paper, an alternative semianalytical quasilinear method based on the describing function formulation is proposed for the harmonic response analysis of structures with symmetrical nonlinearities. The equations of motion are converted to a set of nonl...
