## Definition

Let $P$ be a preordered type, and let $A$ be a sub-preordered type of $P$ with a monic monotonic function $m:A \subseteq P$. $A$ is a lower type on $P$ or a (0,1)-presheaf on $P$ if $A$ comes with a term

 \lambda: \prod_{a:A} \prod_{p:P} (p \leq m(a)) \times \Vert \left[fiber(m, fiber(m, p) \Vert \right]

where $fiber(m, p)$ is the fiber of $m$ at $p$ and  \Vert \left[fiber(m, fiber(m, p) \Vert \right] says that the fiber of $m$ at $p$ is inhabited.

If $P$ is a set, then $A$ is also a set and thus called a lower set.
