second part of the course teoria dei tipi • begin April 11th, 2024 • by Ingo

*Welcome to our joint course on Agda. :-)*

Agda is a programming language.
But Agda is much more than that: Agda is also a *proof language*.
We can write up mathematical proofs in Agda, even proofs concerning infinite or uncomputable objects.
Furthermore, Agda is not static: Agda is also a *proof assistant* helping us devise proofs.
With Agda, we can …:

- develop proofs and ensure their correctness,
- verify the correctness of programs,
- practically explore type theory,
- appreciate mathematics from a new point of view and
- unlock new ways of mathematical collaboration.

I hope you will enjoy the course. *Questions and suggestions are always welcome!*

Thursdays and Fridays from 4.30 pm till 6.00 pm (Italian time)

*Suggested exercises and their solutions will be posted here.*

*First draft based on earlier Agda workshops. After the basics are cleared, we can explore lots of different tangents. Your input is very much welcome.*

**Agda as a programming language**- Bool, id, neg, ¬_, and
- Nat, add2, pred, recursion
- "types are first-class", "everything has a type"
- Weird
- NatList
- List
- Vector

**Agda as a proof language**- de Morgan
- relations
- equality type, zero = zero, neg² = id, function extensionality
- lemmas about natural numbers
- general induction

**Exploring Agda**- certified sorting
- sets as trees, Russell's paradox
- simply typed lambda calculus
- minima of sets of natural numbers, Higman's Lemma
- setoids
- cubical Agda
