Build Status

Homotopy Type Theory is an interpretation of Martin-Löf’s intensional type theory into abstract homotopy theory. Propositional equality is interpreted as homotopy and type isomorphism as homotopy equivalence. Logical constructions in type theory then correspond to homotopy-invariant constructions on spaces, while theorems and even proofs in the logical system inherit a homotopical meaning. As the natural logic of homotopy, type theory is also related to higher category theory as it is used e.g. in the notion of a higher topos.

The HoTT library is a development of homotopy-theoretic ideas in the Coq proof assistant. It draws many ideas from Vladimir Voevodsky's Foundations library (which has since been incorporated into the UniMath library) and also cross-pollinates with the HoTT-Agda library.

INSTALLATION

Installation details are explained in the file INSTALL.md.

USAGE

It is possible to use the HoTT library directly on the command line with the hoqtop script, but who does that?

It is probably better to use Proof General and Emacs. When Proof General asks you where to find the coqtop executable, just point it to the hoqtop script. If Emacs runs a coqtop without asking, you should probably customize set the variable proof-prog-name-ask to nil (in Emacs type C-h v proof-prog-name-ask RET to see what this is about).

At the moment there is no hoqide equivalent of coqide, but getting one is high on our to-do list.

CONTRIBUTING

Contributions to the HoTT library are very welcome! For style guidelines and further information, see the file STYLE.md.

LICENSING

The library is released under the permissive BSD 2-clause license, see the file LICENSE.txt for further information. In brief, this means you can do whatever you like with it, as long as you preserve the Copyright messages. And of course, no warranty!
