Python implementation persistent images representation of persistence diagrams.

Project description

[![Build Status](](
[![License: MIT](](

# Persim <img align="right" width="40" height="40" src="">

Persim is a Python implementation of Persistence Images as first introduced in [](

It is designed to interface with [Ripser](, though any persistence diagram should work fine.

# Setup

Currently, the only option is to install the library from source:

pip install persim

# Usage

First, construct a diagram. In this example, we will use [Ripser](

``` Python
import numpy as np
from ripser import Rips

data = np.random.random((100,2))
rips = Rips()
dgm = rips.fit_transform(data)
diagram = dgm[1] # Just diagram for H1

Then from this diagram, we construct the persistence image

``` Python
from persim import PersImage

pim = PersImage(diagram)
img = pim.transform()


- The API needs a little work, not quite sklearn compliant. Please do offer any suggestions.
- Implement more varieties of weighting and kernel functions.
- Build tests.
