Sammanfattning : The intensional identity type is one if the most intricate concepts of dependent type theory. The recently discovered connection between homotopy theory and type theory gives a novel perspective on the identity type. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : The interpretation of types in intensional Martin-Löf type theory as spaces and their equalities as paths leads to a surprising new view on the identity type: not only are higher-dimensional equalities explained as homotopies, this view also is compatible with Voevodsky's univalence axiom which explains equality for type-theoretic universes as homotopy equivalences, and formally allows to identify isomorphic structures, a principle often informally used despite its incompatibility with set theory. While this interpretation in homotopy theory as well as the univalence axiom can be justified using a model of type theory in Kan simplicial sets, this model can, however, not be used to explain univalence computationally due to its inherent use of classical logic.
