    I have made the requested link to tautological bundle work: through the existing tautological line bundle.

    Also added a bunch of further hyperlinks, notably to real projective space.

    In doing so, I took the liberty of re-formatting as follows. On the off-chance that you are reading the nForum, let me know what you think:

    on the real projective space in homotopy type theory.

    Abstract. Homotopy type theory is a version of Martin-Löf type theory taking advantage of its homotopical models. In particular, we can use and construct objects of homotopy theory and reason about them using higher inductive types. In this article, we construct the real projective spaces, key players in homotopy theory, as certain higher inductive types in homotopy type theory. The classical definition of P n\mathbb{R}P^n, as the quotient space identifying antipodal points of the nn-sphere, does not translate directly to homotopy type theory. Instead, we define P n\mathbb{R}P^n by induction on nn simultaneously with its tautological bundle of 22-element sets. As the base case, we take P 1\mathbb{R}P^{-1} to be the empty type. In the inductive step, we take P n+1\mathbb{R}P^{n+1} to be the mapping cone of the projection map of the tautological bundle of P n\mathbb{R}P^{n}, and we use its universal property and the univalence axiom to define the tautological bundle on P n+1\mathbb{R}P^{n+1}. By showing that the total space of the tautological bundle of P n\mathbb{R}P^n is the n-sphere, we retrieve the classical description of P n+1\mathbb{R}P^{n+1} as P(n)\mathbb{R}P(n) with an (n+1)(n+1)-cell attached to it. The infinite dimensional real projective space, defined as the sequential colimit of the P n\mathbb{R}P^n with the canonical inclusion maps, is equivalent to the Eilenberg-MacLane space K(/2,1)K(\mathbb{Z}/2\mathbb{Z},1), which here arises as the subtype of the universe consisting of 22-element types. Indeed, the infinite dimensional projective space classifies the 00-sphere bundles, which one can think of as synthetic line bundles. These constructions in homotopy type theory further illustrate the utility of homotopy type theory, including the interplay of type theoretic and homotopy theoretic ideas.
