# Nilpotent types and fracture squares in homotopy type theory

@article{Scoccola2019NilpotentTA, title={Nilpotent types and fracture squares in homotopy type theory}, author={Luis Scoccola}, journal={Mathematical Structures in Computer Science}, year={2019}, volume={30}, pages={511 - 544} }

Abstract We develop the basic theory of nilpotent types and their localizations away from sets of numbers in Homotopy Type Theory. For this, general results about the classifying spaces of fibrations with fiber an Eilenberg–Mac Lane space are proven. We also construct fracture squares for localizations away from sets of numbers. All of our proofs are constructive.

### Central H-spaces and banded types

- MathematicsArXiv

We introduce and study central types, which are generalizations of Eilenberg-Mac Lane spaces. A type is central when it is equivalent to the component of the identity among its own self-equivalences.…

### Ext groups in Homotopy Type Theory

We develop the theory of Yoneda Ext groups over a ring in homotopy type theory (HoTT) and describe their interpretation into an $\infty$-topos. This is an abstract approach to Ext groups which does…

We study localization at a prime in homotopy type theory, using self maps of the circle. Our main result is that for a pointed, simply connected type $X$, the natural map $X \to X_{(p)}$ induces…

We prove the Hurewicz theorem in homotopy type theory, i.e., that for $X$ a pointed, $(n-1)$-connected type $(n \geq 1)$ and $A$ an abelian group, there is a natural isomorphism $\pi_n(X)^{ab}…
