## Guide to Starting Javaplex (With Matlab)

Step 1)

Visit https://appliedtopology.github.io/javaplex/ and download the Persistent Homology and Topological Data Analysis Library

2)

Download the tutorial at http://www.math.colostate.edu/~adams/research/javaplex_tutorial.pdf and jump to section 1.3. Installation for Matlab.

3)

In Matlab, change Matlab’s “Current Folder” to the directory matlab examples that you just extracted from the zip file.

(See https://www.mathworks.com/help/matlab/ref/cd.html to change current folder)

Type this in Matlab: cd /…/matlab_examples

Where … depends on where you put the folder

4) In the tutorial (from the link given in step 2), proceed to follow the instructions starting from “In Matlab, change Matlab’s “Current Folder” to the directory matlab examples that you just extracted from the zip file. In the Matlab command window, run the load javaplex.m file.”.

5) Test: Run example 3.2 (House example) by typing in the code (following the tutorial)
