    Given a continuous function f : X → R on a topological space, we consider the preimages of intervals and their homol- ogy groups and show how to read the ranks of these groups from the extended persistence diagram of f. In addition, we quan- tify the robustness of the homology classes under perturbations of f using well groups, and we show how to read the ranks of these groups from the same extended persistence diagram. The special case X = R^3 has ramifications in the fields of medical imaging and scientific visualization.
