We present a development of the theory of higher groups?, including infinity groups and connective spectra?, in homotopy type theory. An infinity group is simply the loops in a pointed, connected? type, where the group structure comes from the structure inherent in the identity types of Martin-Löf type theory. We investigate ordinary groups from this viewpoint, as well as higher dimensional groups and groups that can be delooped? more than once. A major result is the stabilization theorem, which states that if an n-type can be delooped n+2 times, then it is an infinite loop type. Most of the results have been formalized in the Lean proof assistant.
