If you have a question about this talk, please contact Julia Goedecke. Dependent types are interpreted in a category as certain maps, called fibrations, where substitution corresponds to pullback, quantifiers correspond to adjoints to pullback, and identity types arise from a weak factorisation system. In this talk I will look at how, given such a category C with fibrations modelling dependent type theory, we can get another model in the category of polynomials in C. These can be thought of as types with quantifiers freely added, with maps analogous to implication in GĂ¶del’s Dialectica interpretation of arithmetic.
