In the neurosciences and other fields, structures and data are often represented as graphs (networks), simplicial complexes, hypergraphs and the like. In recent years many new tools from graph theory, spectral analysis, discrete geometry, topology etc. have been developed to deal with such structures. In this course, I shall introduce and apply the spectrum of such mathematical methods.
