Persistence theory provides useful tools to extract information from real-world data sets, and profits of techniques from different mathematical disciplines, such as Morse theory and quiver representation. In this seminar, I am going to present a new approach for studying persistence theory using model categories. I will briefly introduce model categories and then describe how to define a model structure on the category of the tame parametrised chain complexes, which are chain complexes that evolve in time. Using this model structure, we can define new invariants for tame parametrised chain complexes, which are in perfect accordance with the standard barcode when restricting to persistence modules. I will illustrate with some examples why such an approach can be useful in topological data analysis and what new insight on standard persistence can give us.
