Bottleneck distances

Adam Spannaus

Hi Dimitri,

I am having an issue when computing the bottleneck distance between two diagrams. When both persistence diagrams have a point that has inf as its death time, the bottleneck distance seems to hang and not return a value. When computing these same values using the TDA package in R, I am able to compute these same distances, as it sets some finite number for the death at inf.  Also, since the death time is an attribute, I cannot change it in my code to be some large number.

Thanks for the assistance,
