We introduce logicenriched intuitionistic type theories, that extend intuitionistic dependent type theories with primitive judgements to express logic. By adding type theoretic rules that correspond to the collection axiom schemes of the constructive set theory CZF we obtain a generalisation of the type theoretic interpretation of CZF. Suitable logicenriched type theories allow also the study of reinterpretations of logic. We end the paper with an application to the doublenegation interpretation.

A minimalist twolevel foundation for constructive mathematics

We present a twolevel theory to formalize constructive mathematics as advocated in a previous paper with G. Sambin [MS05]. One level is given by an intensional type theory, called Minimal type theory. This theory extends the settheoretic version introduced in [MS05] with collections. The other level is given by an extensional set theory that is interpreted in the first one by means of a quotient model. This twolevel theory has two main features: it is minimal among the most relevant foundations for constructive mathematics; it is constructive thanks to the way the extensional level is linked to the intensional one which fulfills the “proofsasprograms” paradigm and acts as a programming language.
Presheaf models of constructive set theories

Abstract. We introduce a new kind of models for constructive set theories based on categories of presheaves. These models are a counterpart of the presheaf models for intuitionistic set theories defined by Dana Scott in the ’80s. We also show how presheaf models fit into the framework of Algebraic Set Theory and sketch an application to an independence result. 1. Variable sets in foundations and practice Presheaves are of central importance both for the foundations and the practice of mathematics. The notion of a presheaf formalizes well the idea of a variable set, that is relevant in all the areas of mathematics concerned with the study of indexed families of objects [19]. One may then readily see how presheaves are of interest also in foundations: both Cohen’s forcing models for classical set theories and Kripke models for intuitionistic logic involve the idea of sets indexed by stages. Constructive aspects start to emerge when one considers the internal logic of categories of presheaves. This logic, which does not include classical principles such as the law of the excluded middle, provides a useful language to manipulate objects

A logic is developed in which function symbols are allowed to represent partial functions. It has the usual rules of logic (in the form of a sequent calculus) except that the substitution rule has to be modified. It is developed here in its minimal form, with equality and conjunction, as partial Horn logic. Various kinds of logical theory are equivalent: partial Horn theories, quasiequational theories (partial Horn theories without predicate symbols), cartesian theories and essentially algebraic theories. The logic is sound and complete with respect to models in Set, and sound with respect to models in any cartesian (finite limit) category. The simplicity of the quasiequational form allows an easy predicative constructive proof of the free partial model theorem for cartesian theories: that if a theory morphism is given from one cartesian theory to another, then the forgetful (reduct) functor from one model category to the other has a left adjoint. Various examples of quasiequational theory are studied, including those of cartesian categories and of other classes of categories. For each quasiequational theory T another, CartϖT, is constructed, whose models are cartesian categories equipped with models of T. Its initial model, the classifying category for T, has properties similar to those of the syntactic category, but more precise with respect to strict cartesian functors.

We advocate a pragmatic approach to constructive set theory, using axioms based solely on settheoretic principles that are directly relevant to (constructive) mathematical practice. Following this approach, we present theories ranging in power from weaker predicative theories to stronger impredicative ones. The theories we consider all have sound and complete classes of categorytheoretic models, obtained by axiomatizing the structure of an ambient category of classes together with its subcategory of sets. In certain special cases, the categories of sets have independent characterizations in familiar categorytheoretic terms, and one thereby obtains a rich source of naturally occurring mathematical models for (both predicative and impredicative) constructive set theories.

Abstract. We present a constructive algebraic integration theory. The theory is constructive in the sense of Bishop, however we avoid the axiom of countable, or dependent, choice. Thus our results can be interpreted in any topos. Since we avoid impredicative methods the results may also be interpreted in MartinL type theory or in a predicative topos in the sense of Moerdijk and Palmgren. We outline how to develop most of Bishop’s theorems on integration theory that do not mention points explicitly. Coquand’s constructive version of the Stone representation theorem is an important tool in this process. It is also used to give a new proof of Bishop’s spectral theorem.
