Types are Internal ∞-Groupoids

by   Antoine Allioux, et al.

By extending type theory with a universe of definitionally associative and unital polynomial monads, we show how to arrive at a definition of opetopic type which is able to encode a number of fully coherent algebraic structures. In particular, our approach leads to a definition of ∞-groupoid internal to type theory and we prove that the type of such ∞-groupoids is equivalent to the universe of types. That is, every type admits the structure of an ∞-groupoid internally, and this structure is unique.
