Idea

The identity type has elements that are witnesses to the “sameness” of elements.

Definition

The identity type = A:AA𝒰=_A : A \to A \to \mathcal{U} can be defined as the inductive type? with the following constructor: * for anya:Aa:A, an element refl A:a= Aarefl_A: a=_A a

  • for any a:Aa:A, an element refl A:a= Aarefl_A: a=_A a
