Title: Topological Phase Transitions in Random Geometric Complexes


Connectivity and percolation are two well studied phenomena in random graphs. 

In this talk we will discuss higher-dimensional analogues of connectivity and percolation that occur in random simplicial complexes.

Simplicial complexes are a natural generalization of graphs that consist of vertices, edges, triangles, tetrahedra, and higher dimensional simplexes.

We will mainly focus on random geometric complexes. These complexes are generated by taking the vertices to be a random point process, and adding simplexes according to their geometric configuration.
