Research >> Manifold learning
Given unorganized points drawn from an
can you reconstruct the manifold? This problem is of
theoretically, and also has potential applications in machine learning.
We propose a method which constructs a simplicial manifold; the method
is designed to work for abitrary dimension and codimension. Unlike the
Isomap and LLE family of algorithms, the proposed technique does not depend
on the manifold having the topology of a ball.
