Dr Chuangjie Xu (Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München) Continuity in Type Theory

If all functions (N -> N) -> N are continuous then 0 = 1. We
establish this in intuitionistic type theory, with existence in the
formulation of continuity expressed as a Sigma-type via the
Curry-Howard interpretation. But with an intuitionistic notion of
anonymous existence, defined as the propositional truncation of
Sigma, it is consistent that all such functions are continuous. On
the other hand, any of these two intuitionistic conceptions of
existence give the same, consistent, notion of uniform continuity
for functions (N -> 2) -> N. Moreover, we constructively develop a
model of uniform continuity and implemented it within type theory
using Agda.

Seminar announcement

In the JAIST Logic Seminar Series, Professor Erik Palmgren (Department of Mathematics, Stockholm University) will give a series of lectures:
Lectures on type theory with a view towards formalizing Bishop-style mathematics

In this series of three lectures we give an introduction to Martin-Lof type theory and the tools it provides for formalizing Bishop-style constructive mathematics.
The first lecture will cover basic principles of type theory and give an introduction to its manifestation in the well-known proof assistant Coq.
In the second lecture we consider “Bishop’s set theory” (Bishop and Bridges 1985) from the point of view of type theory, which will involve a development the theory of setoids and subsetoids.
The third lecture will cover models constructive set theory (CZF) in type theory, and how it can be used to solve the problem of universes of setoids and development of category theory.
Throughout the lectures we provide examples and suggestions how you can yourself experiment with the Coq system in the formalization of constructive mathematics.

Description:
JAIST Logic Workshop Series is a workshop series bringing together researchers from mathematical logic and its application, especially to artificial intelligence and software science. Each workshop has its own focus on a specific area of research in mathematical logic and its application. Previous workshops have been held in Kanazawa 2013, 2014 and 2014:
http://www.jaist.ac.jp/~hirokawa/pr2013/
http://www.jaist.ac.jp/~preining/wpp/
http://www.jaist.ac.jp/~v-sano/jw2014/index.html

In 2015, JAIST Logic Workshop Series focuses on “Constructivism and Computability” aiming at interaction and knowledge transfer between constructive mathematics and computability theory. The workshop is held being affiliated with EU FP7 Marie Curie Actions IRSES projects COMPUTAL (http://computal.uni-trier.de/) and CORCON (https://corcon.net/), but is open to all researchers in the areas.

Scope:
constructive mathematics including intuitionistic logic and type theory, proof theory, constructive analysis and topology, program extraction from proofs, constructive reverse mathematics etc., and computability theory including recursion theory, computable analysis and topology, real number computation, reverse mathematics, algorithmic randomness etc.

Talk announcement

On Friday, June 27th, Dr John Stell from the University of Leeds, UK, will give a talk at JAIST.

Bi-Intuitionistic Modal Logic and Hypergraphs

Abstract:
I will discuss motivations from spatial reasoning and mathematical morphology (as used in image processing) for the notion of a relation on a graph. I will show how the algebra of these relations is weaker than that of relations on a set. This leads to a generalization of relation algebras in which the Boolean algebra is replaced by a symmetric Heyting algebra.
These relations can be used as the accessibility relations for a modal logic in which propositions are interpreted as subgraphs of a graph or more generally a hypergraph.
