If you have a question about this talk, please contact Dan Ghica. In this talk, I will propose a directed type theory. The goal of this project is to develop a type theory which can be used to describe directed homotopy theory and category theory. At the core of this type theory is a `homomorphism’ type former whose terms are meant to represent homomorphisms or directed paths. Its rules are roughly analogous to those of Martin-Löf’s identity type. I will give an interpretation of this type former in the category of small categories which helps to elucidate its rules. I will also describe progress towards constructing weak factorization systems and interpretations in categories of directed spaces.
