Consider a region covered by sensors with a report of the number of agents within each sensor.
The question of the total number of agents, the minimum number of agents or the most likely number of agents
reported by these sensors will be discussed in terms of topology as well as hard problems within linear programming.
This talk is based on joint work with Bill Moran, Wang Zengfu, and Doug Cochran
