Because sheaves model consistency relationships between local data, they are easily assembled from detailed models of systems. Being topological in nature, sheaves mediate local-to-global inference. By incorporating local geometry from the start, the global fit between local data and models can be quantified, which supports robust inferences about missing or inaccurate data. The utility of this approach is not merely its intellectual cohesion; it also yields performant algorithms. Why?
