In recent years, classical methods of algebraic topology have found increasing use in applications. The key ingredient for these applications is the persistent homology algorithm of Edelsbrunner, Letscher and Zomorodian (2000). I will discuss a few examples, from visual image statistics, sensor networks, and periodic dynamical systems.
