Résumé: 
gdt Homotopy Type Theory  séance 1 
Description: 
Andrew Polonsky The first of a little series of talks on Homotopy Type Theory (i.e., higherorder algebraic treatment of the notion of equality in dependant type theory).
Logical relations are a technique for proving metatheoretic properties of type systems. In recent years, they have received a lot of attention as it became clear that logical relations give the most natural definition of extensional equality in type theory. A major open problem is to define a type system which contains extensional equality as an internal type constructor. For this, it is necessary to reflect the external logical relation back into the syntax of the type language. In this talk I will describe how to do this.
