Morse inequalities for the Koszul complex of multi-persistence

26 November 2021

In this talk, I'll present inequalities bounding the number of critical cells in a filtered cell complex on the one hand, and the entries of the Betti tables of the multi-parameter persistence modules of such filtrations on the other hand. Using the Mayer-Vietoris spectral sequence we first obtain strong and weak Morse inequalities involving the above quantities, and then we improve the weak inequalities achieving a sharp lower bound for the number of critical cells. Furthermore, we prove a sharp upper bound for the minimal number of critical cells, expressed again in terms of the entries of Betti tables. This is joint work with Andrea Guidolin (KTH, Stockholm). The full paper is posted online as arxiv:2108.11427.
