This course teaches the main concepts in Applied Topology. Students will learn to apply nonlinear methods to analyze the shape of data sets. These approaches are drawn from classical topology and focus on the shape in one of two ways: they either 'measure' it, that is count the occurrences of patterns within the data set; or build combinatorial representations of the data set. As an example of the former, we will look at persistent homology, whereas the latter will be represented by mapper. The topics covered include: basic notions from topology, simplicial complexes (Cech complexes, Vietoris-Rips complexes, etc.), homology, persistent homology and applications, mapper.

This class will be an introduction to differential forms, a central tool in modern topology, geometry, and physics. The course begins where MATH222 ends, with Green's theorem, the divergence theorem, and Stokes' theorem. All of these theorems are special cases of one theorem, known as the general Stokes' theorem, about integration of differential forms. The objective of the first part of the course will be to understand and prove this theorem. We will then discuss manifolds and what can be learned about them using differential forms, concentrating on de Rham cohomology.

**MATH271 Error-Correcting Codes**

Nowadays messages are sent electronically through different kinds of communication channels. Most of these channels are not perfect and errors are created during the transmission. The object of an error-correcting code is to encode the data so that the message can be recovered if not too many errors have occurred. The goal of this course is to introduce the basic mathematical ideas behind the design of error-correcting codes. It makes use of algebraic techniques involving vector spaces, finite fields, and polynomial rings. These techniques will be developed in this course so that prior knowledge is not necessary.

Ideally, the student should understand what it means to be first-order definable and should have the equivalent of a year's study of abstract algebra. To study various applications, it will be necessary to assume certain results from the areas of application--that is, without proving them ab initio.
