Discrete Morse theory introduced by Robin Forman in 1998 is a combinatorial version of smooth Morse theory. It has proven to be a useful tool for computing homology of cell complexes and persistent homology of filtered cell complexes, and is also widely used in topological data analysis. We will present a parametric version of discrete Morse theory and an algorithm based on it for tracking critical features in data.
