Honoré Fabri and the concept of impetus a bridge between paradigms by Michael Elazar ( )
8 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 297 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Intuitionistic type theory can be described, somewhat boldly, as a partial fulfillment of the dream of a universal language for science. This book expounds several aspects of intuitionistic type theory, such as the notion of set, reference vs. computation, assumption, and substitution.
