Background reading

Muhammad Abubakr is suggesting the following :

For light reading (survey article)

From a machine learing perspective (important contribution)
Finding the Homology of Submanifolds with High Confidence from Random Samples by P. Niyogi, S. Smale, S.Weinberger

For basics of homology theory and details on the persistence algorithm (tutorial value)
Computing Persistent Homology by Afra Zomorodian and Gunnar Carlsson

and Dmitriy Morozov suggests the following :

Persistent Homology - a Survey by Herbert Edelsbrunner and John Harer
