`%K persistent homology, Morse-Smale complex, discrete Morse theory, large data.`

`%X We propose a memory-efficient method that com- putes persistent homology for 3D gray-scale images. The basic idea is to compute the persistence of the induced Morse-Smale complex. Since in practice this complex is much smaller than the input data, significantly less memory is required for the subsequent computations. We propose a novel algorithm that efficiently extracts the Morse-Smale complex based on algorithms from discrete Morse theory. The proposed algorithm is thereby optimal with a computational complexity of O(n2). The per- sistence is then computed using the Morse-Smale complex by applying an existing algorithm with a good practical running time. We demonstrate that our method allows for the computation of persistent homology for large data on commodity hardware.`
