We are pleased to announce the
School on Univalent Mathematics 2022,
to be held at the Palazzone di Cortona
Cortona, Italy, July 17-23, 2022
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
In this school, we aim to introduce newcomers to the ideas of Univalent
Foundations and mathematics therein, and to the formalization of
mathematics in UniMath (https://urldefense.com/v3/__https://github.com/UniMath/UniMath__;!!IBzWLUs!Gmye0y5Af6orRF47PSIIOEv58vLAxiLhrVEeg9zDMeByR4F0imZNRKbJPuKQ0BMMGa4AWecr1ktJyQ$ ), a library of
Univalent Mathematics based on the Coq proof assistant.
Participants will receive an introduction to Univalent Foundations and to
mathematics in those foundations. In the accompanying problem sessions,
they will formalize pieces of univalent mathematics in the UniMath library.
Participants should be interested in mathematics and the use of computers
for mathematical reasoning. Participants do not need to have prior
knowledge of logic, Coq, or Univalent Foundations.
