felt the desire to have an entry on the general idea (if any) of synthetic mathematics, cross-linking with the relevant examples-entries.

This has much room for being further expanded, of course.

Since “synthetic homnotopy theory” redirects here, I tried to add some pointers, but just a start:

Discussion of synthetic homotopy theory (typically understood as homotopy type theory):

I noticed that the link “synthetic homotopy theory” didn’t go anywhere. Have made it a redirect to synthetic mathematics now, since that is the entry which has a subsection “Synthetic homotopy theory”. Optimally it should be given it’s own entry, though.

Sorry that was me. I was in the process of setting up a new page yesterday, but removing the redirect didn’t generate the usual ? link, and I got called away. I’ll see if I have time today.

Oh, I see. All the better! Let’s create that page, when anyone finds the time.

I’m trying again, have removed the redirect, but synthetic homotopy theory still ends up at synthetic mathematics

Redirected from “synthetic homotopy theory”

1. Removed now. Think there is a little bug in such cases, which submitting an edit after the first one usually solves. I’ll try to fix the bug when I get a chance.

Thanks!

2. There are versions of Tarski’s axioms for synthetic Euclidean geometry that apply for any finite dimension $n \in \mathbb{N}$.
