Bug in the tutorial: simplices = [] -> simplices = Filtration()

/**
 * Wrapper class
 * 
 * At points we need to wrap primitive data types in classes, so that we can
 * pass them as template arguments to classes that like to inherit from their
 * template arguments--this is done in CohomologyPersistence, for example.
