  1. Finite types have a different meaning in type theory and homotopy type theory.

    Actually, the traditional language use in homological algebra etc. is Not in the way of

    this object is a finite type

    but as

    this object is of finite type

    or

    this object has finite type.

    But see finite homotopy type and π-finite homotopy type.

    I have adjusted the disambiguation clause at the top accordingly.

    Okay, I am renaming the entry from “finite type” to “object of finite type”. Will make “finite type” a disambiguation page.

    Have chased through all existing entries to change all occurrences of “of finite type” to “of finite type”. Hope I caught them all. If anyone spots any remaining instances, please fix.
