Real-cohesive homotopy type theory

Two new papers have recently appeared online: Brouwer’s fixed-point theorem in real-cohesive homotopy type theory by me, and Adjoint logic with a 2-category of modes, by Dan Licata with a bit of help from me. Both of them have fairly … Continue reading

A new class of models for the univalence axiom

First of all, in case anyone missed it, Chris Kapulkin recently wrote a guest post at the n-category cafe summarizing the current state of the art regarding “homotopy type theory as the internal language of higher categories”. I’ve just posted … Continue reading

Universal Properties of Truncations

Some days ago at the HoTT/UF workshop in Warsaw (which was a great event!), I have talked about functions out of truncations. I have focussed on the propositional truncation , and I want to write this blog post in case … Continue reading

A master thesis on homotopy type theory

In the last year, I have written my master thesis on homotopy type theory under supervision of Andrej Bauer in Ljubljana, to whom I went on an exchange, and Jaap van Oosten and Benno van den Berg in Utrecht. Their … Continue reading

Modeling Univalence in Inverse Diagrams

I have just posted the following preprint, which presents new set-theoretic models of univalence in categories of simplicial diagrams over inverse categories (or, more generally, diagrams over inverse categories starting from any existing model of univalence). The univalence axiom for … Continue reading

Inductive Types in HoTT

With all the excitement about higher inductive types (e.g. here and here), it seems worthwhile to work out the theory of conventional (lower?) inductive types in HoTT. That’s what Nicola Gambino, Kristina Sojakova and I have done, as we report … Continue reading
