I've already read it but I just wanted to chip in that this book is very readable with a lower barrier to entry than any other algebraic topology book I know of. Perfect for a study group like this.

I’d be interested but I don’t think I’m of that level yet (high school student with only calculus 1-3 experience) : what are the prereqs?

I'm certainly interested!  I'm not very versed in topology but I've got a good background in graphs and algorithms.  Sounds fun!

I'm interested! I have some exposure to algebraic topology but only through physics so I'd benefit from a formal treatment. I also have formal CS background.

Edit: If we're doing exercises too, a chapter a week is a bit too fast for me since I have other things to do too. I can keep up with that pace through the first few chapters, but eventually I'd hit a point where I need time to think through things carefully. That being said, I don't *need* to also do the exercises, though.

I'm interested. My PhD dissertation was on computational topology and I used this book as a reference. I've only read a handful of chapters, but I've been meaning to read through the whole thing at some point.

I'm interested.  I was a PhD in statistics but our research back then in statistical shape analysis involved computational differential geometry.  I took a look at this book and it's nothing along those lines but it seems this would be fun.

I'd love to be a part of this! I have read other TDA based papers on topics like signal processing as well as persistent homologies and mapper algorithms, so reading an actual text would be very helpful!

I'm not 100% sure I can do the exercises every week as I have a full time job doing data science, but I'll try! If there's a discord server, please PM it to me :)
