If you have a question about this talk, please contact Jamie Vicary. Polynomials in category theory represent datatypes which, like polynomial functions, can be expressed using sums and products. Extending this analogy, I will characterize the category of polynomials in terms of indexed sums and products for fibrations. This category arises from a distributive law between the pseudomonad ‘freely adding’ indexed sums to a fibration, and its dual adding indexed products. I will also relate this perspective to the structure of categorical models of type theory with dependent sum and product types.
