**Description:** This course offers an introduction to basic concepts from computational geometry and topology (such as persistent homology), which have in recent years become important tools in data analysis. We will cover the underlying mathematical theory, study concrete examples from applications in the natural sciences, and do some computer programming in order to see how the theory works in practice.

**Prerequisites:** Basic linear algebra (Lineare Algebra I,II) and calculus (Analysis I,II)
