This library provides easy to use constructors for custom filtrations that are suitable for use with Phat. Phat currently provides a clean interface for persistence reduction algorithms for boundary matrices. This tool helps bridge the gap between data and boundary matrices. Currently, we support construction of Alpha, Rips, and Cech filtrations, and provide an easy interface for Phat.

If you have a particular filtration you would like implemented, please feel free to reach out and we can work on helping with implementation and integration, so others can use it.


The latest version of cechmate can be found on Pypi and installed with pip:

pip install cechmate
