GPU-Accelerated Computation of Vietoris-Rips Persistence Barcodes

by   Simon Zhang, et al.

The computation of Vietoris-Rips persistence barcodes is both execution-intensive and memory-intensive. In this paper, we study the computational structure of Vietoris-Rips persistence barcodes, and identify several unique mathematical properties and algorithmic opportunities with connections to the GPU. Mathematically and empirically, we look into the properties of apparent pairs, which are independently identifiable persistence pairs comprising up to 99 lower bounds of the apparent pair rate and model the average case. We also design massively parallel algorithms to take advantage of the very large number of simplices that can be processed independently of each other. Having identified these opportunities, we develop a GPU-accelerated software for computing Vietoris-Rips persistence barcodes, called Ripser++. The software achieves up to 30x speedup over the total execution time of the original Ripser and also reduces CPU-memory usage by up to 2.0x. We believe our GPU-acceleration based efforts open a new chapter for the advancement of topological data analysis in the post-Moore's Law era.
