# Edit Distance and Persistence Diagrams Over Lattices

We build a functorial pipeline for persistent homology. The input to this pipeline is a filtered simplicial complex indexed by any finite lattice, and the output is a persistence diagram defined as the Möbius inversion of a certain monotone integral function. We adapt the Reeb graph edit distance of Landi et. al. to each of our categories and prove that both functors in our pipeline are 1-Lipschitz making our pipeline stable.
