If you have a question about this talk, please contact Neel Krishnaswami. The aim of this work is to develop a constructive version of nominal logic as a dependent type theory. The motivation for such an aim, from a programming point of view, is the desire to combine FreshML style meta-programming for syntax with binding operations with Agda/Coq style theorem-proving (particularly inductively defined indexed families of types and dependent pattern-matching). Achieving this aim requires a constructive treatment of the nominal sets notion of freshness. In this talk I will describe one such treatment as an extension of Martin-L\”of type theory. This is joint work with Justus Matthiesen and Jasper Derikx. This talk is part of the Theoretical computer science seminar series. ## This talk is included in these lists:- CS 245
