A relationist and descriptive approach to stationary time series

Abstract : With the objective of questioning the foundings of network modeling in complex systems sciences, this article addresses the issue of building discrete topological spaces from continuous data measured on a complex system thanks to sta- tistical inference, then to characterize the obtained space. We first take the example of graphs to underline the sensitivity of graph properties to thresholding. Then we put forward a possible way to cope with that drawback thanks to a multilevel point of view. We extend results to n-ary relations thanks to simplicial complexes, and to statistical independence before characterizing the obtained space with simplicial homology, in a threshold-independent manner.
