Given a cloud of points in R^n, try to find a pattern, to describe the shape that they fill out in space. The subject is still very new, but there are attempts to compute geometric invariants, ranging from homology to finer invariants, such as curvature.

Suitable for students who have a background in geometry and or algebraic topology.
