a talk that I gave:
Equivariant Super Homotopy Theory
talk at
Geometry in Modal Homotopy Type Theory
CMU Pittsburgh, 11-15 March 2019
$\,$
Abstract. Adding systems of adjoint modal operators to
$\;\phantom{\sim}$homotopy-type theory
$\;\sim$homotopy type-theory
makes it an elegant and powerful formal language
for reasoning about higher geometry,
specifically (and incrementally) for:
The first two of these stages are discussed in other talks at this meeting (see in particular thesis Wellen)
In this talk I will:
describe higher supergeometry as intended categorical semantics for the full system of modalitites;
mention interesting theorems that should lend themselves to formalization in type theory;
indicate motivation from and application to the unofficial Millennium Problem of formulating M-theory (“Hypothesis H”, joint with Hisham Sati and Domenico Fiorenza).
