  4. 4. Cubical Intepretations of Type Theory

    University dissertation from Göteborg : University of Gothenburg

    Author : Simon Huber; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2016]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Dependent Type Theory; Univalence Axiom; Models of Type Theory; Identity Types; Cubical Sets;

    Abstract : 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.

  5. 5. Shadows of Cavernous Shades: Charting the Chiaroscuro of Realistic Computing

    University dissertation from Department of Computer Science, Lund University

    Author : Erik Persson; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2003]

    Abstract : During the early 1990s, a novel style of programming often referred to as component-oriented programming quickly grew popular as the state-of-the-art in graphical user interface and client/server development on Windows-based personal computers, largely in competition with object-oriented programming, a partly similar, partly different programming paradigm, with which component-orientation is often compared, combined, and confused. Also during the 1990s, the world-wide web spread its arachnoid gossamer over the globe with deep-ranging ramifications for software component technology. READ MORE
