Second School and Workshop on Univalent Mathematics

by Gianluca Amato, Jan. 3, 2019

Second School and Workshop on Univalent Mathematics,
University of Birmingham (UK), April 1-5, 2019


Homotopy Type Theory is an emerging field of mathematics that studies
a fruitful relationship between homotopy theory and (dependent) type
theory. This relation plays a crucial role in Voevodsky's program of
Univalent Foundations, a new approach to foundations of mathematics
based on ideas from homotopy theory, such as the Univalence Principle.

The UniMath library is a large repository of computer-checked
mathematics, developed from the univalent viewpoint. It is based on the 
computer proof assistant Coq.

In this school and workshop, we aim to introduce newcomers to the ideas 
of Univalent Foundations and mathematics therein, and to formalizing 
mathematics in a computer proof assistant based on Univalent Foundations.


We will have two tracks:
- Beginners track
- Advanced track: suitable for participants with some experience in 
Univalent Foundations and the proof assistant Coq.

In the beginners track, you will receive an introduction to Univalent 
Foundations and to mathematics in those foundations, by leading experts 
in the field. In the accompanying problem sessions, you will formalize 
pieces of univalent mathematics in the UniMath library.
In the advanced track, you will work, in a small group, on formalizing a 
specific topic in UniMath, guided by an expert in univalent mathematics. 
Your code will become part of the UniMath library.
