Abstract
This note contributes to the point calculus of persistent homology by extending Alexander duality from spaces to real-valued functions. Given a perfect Morse function f: S n+1 →[0, 1 and a decomposition S n+1 = U ∪ V into two (n + 1)-manifolds with common boundary M, we prove elementary relationships between the persistence diagrams of f restricted to U, to V, and to M.
