Type Theory in Climate Impact Research: From Program Correctness to Policy Advice

Speaker(s) : Cezar Ionescu (Technische Hochschule Deggendorf)
Type theory is a higher-order logic that can express functional programs, their properties, and, at the same time, proofs of those properties. I will present a brief overview of its applications to climate impact research, focusing on the formalization of concepts such as ``vulnerability'' and the attempts to formulate a mathematical theory of policy advice.
