Description : Library for computing bottleneck and Wasserstein distances between persistence diagrams
Hera is a header-only library that implements algorithms from
Michael Kerber, Dmitriy Morozov, and Arnur Nigmetov,
"Geometry Helps to Compare Persistence Diagrams.",
Journal of Experimental Algorithmics, vol. 22, 2017, pp. 1--20.
(conference version: ALENEX 2016).
that exploits geometry to compute Wasserstein and bottleneck distances
between persistence diagrams much faster than plain matching-based
The library is being packaged because it is now an upstream dependency
of GUDHI (src:gudhi).
I intend to maintain the package myself.
