    how about we replace “higher dimensional” with “higher homotopy” ?

    hyperlinked “HoTT” (!)

    replaced “universe” by “type universe

    maybe “primitive type” would deserve to be hyperlinked

    hyperlinked “proof of types” as “proof of types

    hyperlinked “Mike Shulman

    \;

    By the way, we never had remotely as many edits signed by “Anonymous”. It’s great to see so much activity, and of good quality, too!. But it’s dizzying that all edits carry the same signature. Is this all from a single anonymous contributor? Might I kindly ask that you (all?) choose some pseudonym, so that (you remain anonymous but) we are able to distinguish authors by their signature? Thanks!

    The entry was referring (here) to “one-to-one correspondences”, with a broken link. From the context I am assuming that bijective correspondences are meant, and so I have fixed the link accordingly. But experts please check. Best to replace “one-to-one” by a proper technical term.

    Also, do you really want to point to correspondence = span? Maybe all of “one-to-one correspondence” needs to be replaced by “bijection”, or something like this.

    My understanding is that it really is defined analogous to a relation that is functional, total, injective and surjective, not a bijection. So correspondence in the sense of eg algebraic geometry (ie a span) really is suitable.

    I see, thanks. This would be worth expanding on in the entry.

  2. the added text was originally from the HoTT wiki; I have no idea how accurate it is.
