Formalized Homotopy Theory

Here are some links to proofs about homotopy theory, formalized in homotopy type theory. Please add!

Maybe we could figure out a way not to duplicate stuff between this page and homotopy groups of spheres?

Ali: Results about homotopy groups of spheres should go there, everything else here.

Cast of characters so far: Jeremy Avigad, Guillaume Brunerie, Favonia, Eric Finster, Chris Kapulkin, Dan Licata, Peter Lumsdaine, Mike Shulman, Evan Cavallo

- To do cohomology with finite coefficients, all we need is the boring work of defining $\mathbb{Z}/p\mathbb{Z}$ as an explicit group.
- Calculate some more cohomology groups.
- Compute the loop space of this construction and use it to define spectra.

- Dan’s proof for n-types.

- Dan’s construction.
- $K(G,n)$ is a spectrum, formalized

- Deriving cohomology theories from spectra
- Mayer-Vietoris sequence, with exposition
- Cohomology of the n-torus, which could be easily extended to any finite product of spheres.

Freudenthal suspension theorem?

Implies $\pi_k(S^n) = \pi_{k+1}(S^{n+1})$ whenever $k \leq 2n - 2$

- Peter’s encode/decode-style proof, formalized by Dan, using a clever lemma about maps out of 2 n-connected types. This is the “95%” version, which shows that the relevant map is an equivalence on truncations.
- The full “100%” version, formalized by Dan, which shows that the relevant map is $2n$-connected.

- Mike’s proofs are in the book and Favonia formalized it. {{deadlink}}

Covering space?

- Favonia’s proofs (link in flux due to library rewrite).

Blakers-Massey theorem?

- Favonia/Peter/Guillaume/Dan’s formalization of Peter/Eric/Dan’s proof (link in flux due to library rewrite).
