Description - Twenty Five Years of Constructive Type Theory by Giovanni Sambin
Per Martin-Loef's work on the development of constructive type theory has been of huge significance in the fields of logic and the foundations of mathematics. It is also of broader philosophical significance, and has important applications in areas such as computing science and linguistics. This volume draws together contributions from researchers whose work builds on the theory developed by Martin-Loef over the last twenty-five years. As well as celebrating
the anniversary of the birth of the subject it covers many of the diverse fields which are now influenced by type theory. It is an invaluable record of areas of current activity, but also contains contributions from N. G. de Bruijn and William Tait, both important figures in the early development of the
subject. Also published for the first time is one of Per Martin-Loef's earliest papers.
