Naslov: How much structure do we see in noise (a topological perspective)?

Exploratory data analysis is the search for patterns in sampled data. In 
this talk, I will concentrate on geometric data, where structure often 
takes the form of certain shapes representing constraints in the system 
generating the data. For example, a sphere for normalized data or a 
closed curve representing a periodic system. Recent topological 
techniques can help us find this type of structure.

A natural question then is: what is a reasonable null hypothesis for 
this type of structure? In this talk, I will describe recent results 
characterizing how much structure we expect to find if we sample noise, 
which we take here to be a Poisson point process, also known as a 
completely spatially random model. No previous knowledge of point 
processes or topology will be assumed. I will overview classical results 
from random geometric graphs and present our results for higher 
dimensional analogues.
