Data Types as Quotients of Polynomial Functors

pdf-format:
LIPIcs-ITP-2019-6.pdf (0.5 MB)


Abstract

A broad class of data types, including arbitrary nestings of inductive types, coinductive types, and quotients, can be represented as quotients of polynomial functors. This provides perspicuous ways of constructing them and reasoning about them in an interactive theorem prover.
