#### Re: Computing extended persistence in dionysus2

cai.507@...

Thanks a lot for response. I tried to translate from your example to Dionysus2 and I almost get it but because API for init_diagrams in two versions are different, I fail on the last step.

I try to capture a simple cycle here. I expect the solution should be [3, 0.5] . If I understand coning strategy correctly, The filtration order seems to be right (
<-1> 0
<0> 0.5
<1> 1
<3> 2
<2> 3
<0,1> 1
<0,3> 2
<1,2> 3
<2,3> 3
<-1,2> 0
<-1,3> 0
<-1,1> 0
<-1,0> 0
<-1,2,3> 0
<-1,1,2> 0
<-1,0,1> 0
<-1,0,3> 0)
But the answer it gives is (3,0). I think it's due to I am lacking an analog of eval_ep function in your code. But I looked at the API for init_dionysus in Dionysus2,  and didn't find where to put this eval_ep(value) in.

Hopefully this makes sense to you. Thanks a lot for your time!

Your code (I am having trouble installing Dionysus1 so didn't run the code yet):
# Extended persistence
w = -1
cone = [Simplex([w] + [v for v in s.vertices]) for s in elephant_complex]
cone.append(Simplex([w]))

def projection(points, axis = 1):
def value(v):
return points[v][axis]

return value
value = projection(elephant_points, 1)

def ep_compare(values):
def max_vertex(s):
return max(values(v) for v in s.vertices if v != w)

def min_vertex(s):
return min(values(v) for v in s.vertices if v != w)

def compare(s1, s2):
if s1.dimension() == 0 and w in s1.vertices:
return -1
if s2.dimension() == 0 and w in s2.vertices:
return 1

if s1.dimension() != s2.dimension():
return cmp(s1.dimension(), s2.dimension())

if (w in s1.vertices) ^ (w in s2.vertices): # only one cone simplex
return 1 if w in s1.vertices else -1
elif w in s1.vertices:
return -cmp(min_vertex(s1), min_vertex(s2))
else:
return cmp(max_vertex(s1), max_vertex(s2))

return compare

f = Filtration(elephant_complex + cone)
f.sort(ep_compare(value))

persistence = StaticPersistence(f)
persistence.pair_simplices()

def eval_ep(values):
def eval(s):
if s.dimension() == 0 and w in s.vertices:
return float('inf')
if w in s.vertices:
return min(values(v) for v in s.vertices if v != w)
else:
return max(values(v) for v in s.vertices)
return eval

dgms = init_diagrams(persistence, f, eval_ep(value), lambda i: i)

print show_diagram(dgms)
#print dgms
#print len(dgms)

My code:

def value(v):
for simplex in simplices:
if len(simplex[0]) == 1 and simplex[0][0]==v:
return simplex[1]

elephant_complex = d.Filtration()
for vertices, time in simplices:
elephant_complex.append(d.Simplex(vertices, time))
cone = [d.Simplex([w] + [v for v in s]) for s in elephant_complex]
cone.append(d.Simplex([w]))

def print_filtration(f):
for simplex in f:
print simplex
def ep_compare(values):
def max_vertex(s):
return max(values(v) for v in s if v != w)

def min_vertex(s):

def compare(s1, s2):
if s1.dimension() == 0 and w in s1:
return -1
if s2.dimension() == 0 and w in s2:
return 1

if s1.dimension() != s2.dimension():
return cmp(s1.dimension(), s2.dimension())

if (w in s1) ^ (w in s2): # only one cone simplex
return 1 if w in s1 else -1
elif w in s1:
return -cmp(min_vertex(s1), min_vertex(s2))
else:
return cmp(max_vertex(s1), max_vertex(s2))

return compare

f = d.Filtration(elephant_complex)
for simplex in cone:
f.append(simplex)
f.sort(ep_compare(value))
print_filtration(f)

m = d.homology_persistence(f)
