Title:
Modal type theories and universes of infinity-categories

Abstract:
In the first part I shall survey some recent developments concerning modal type theories, describing work by Licata, Shulman, and Riley. Part of this is a sequent-calculus with good structural rules that can capture ordered/linear/affine logic, bunched implications, and constructive S4 and other modal calculi in a single framework. In the second part I shall describe some applications of the dependently typed version, including a description of universes of infinity-categories in a spatial type theory. (This part is joint work with Jonathan Weinberger.)
