The present work has its origins in our collective attempts to develop a new style of 'informal type theory' that can be read and understood by a human being, as a complement to a formal proof that can be checked by a machine.

This book contains a thorough introduction to type theory, with information on polymorphic sets, subsets, and monomorphic sets. Martin-Lof's type theory makes possible the expression of both specifications and programs within the same formalism.
