DESCRIPTION:With the Principia Mathematica, Whiteh
ead and Russel famously put forward a type theory
as a foundation of mathematics. Since then, events
such as the discovery of the Curry-Howard corresp
ondence and the introduction of dependent types ha
ve drastically changed the face of type theory. Mo
dern type theories thus give rise to attractive fo
undations of mathematics which are very different
from that of the Principia Mathematica. The talk
will begin with a slightly simplified overview of
some of the inner workings of dependent type theo
ries and their intrinsic logic. This will be follo
wed by a more general discussion of the foundation
s obtained from such type theories.

their intrinsic logic. This will be followed by a
more general discussion of the foundations obtaine
