Categories with families, FOLDS and logic enriched type theory
2016 (English)Manuscript (preprint) (Other academic)
Categories with families (cwfs) is an established semantical structure for dependent type theories, such as Martin-Lö type theory. Makkai's first-order logic with dependent sorts (FOLDS) is an example of a so-called logic enriched type theory. We introduce in this article a notion of hyperdoctrine over a cwf, and show how FOLDS and Aczel's and Belo's dependently typed (intuitionistic) first-order logic (DFOL) fit in this semantical framework. A soundness and completeness theorem is proved for such a logic. The semantics is functorial in the sense of Lawvere, and uses a dependent version of the Lindenbaum-Tarski algebra for a DFOL theory. Agreement with standard first-order semantics is established. Some applications of DFOL to constructive mathematics and categorical foundations are given. A key feature is a local propositions-as-types principle.
