Discrete gradient fields on infinite complexes

Abstract Related Papers Cited by
  • The aim of this work is to characterize the discrete gradient vector fields on infinite and locally finite simplicial complexes which are induced by a proper discrete Morse function. This characterization is essentially given by the non-existence of closed trajectories and the absence of a certain kind of incidence between monotonous rays in the given field.
