Here we present a brief exposition of some material from algebraic topology that we use in our methods. We include it for completeness, as it may not be familiar for many readers. In particular, we define simplicial complexes, simplicial homology groups, and state the theorem cited in the Results section. See [Bott and Tu, 1982, Ewald, 1996, Hatcher, 2002] for more details.
