What is the status of (universal) algebra in type theory?
I guess I should go ahead and mark this question as answered. Many thanks to everyone, particularly Peter and Urs. |

Thanks! This may be a silly question, but do we need higher categorical structure--Wouldn't monads/operads be enough? Or is the need for higher structure just an occupational hazard of working within HoTT? |

Examples of common false beliefs in mathematics
It took me a long time to realize that was false as well... Still being an undergrad, I often catch myself trying to use that "theorem". |

Is there a deep relationship between models and étale cohomology ? If so, why, and is it made precise somewhere ?
This is not at all an answer to your question, but a friend of mine suggested a possible model-theoretic proof of the infinitude of Mersenne primes some time last year. It seemed to reduce the problem to a harder model theory problem (hence the fact that this proof was nver finished.) It seems to be a similar sort of thing: there's a nice model theoretic way of looking at a problem, and a lot of the work has already been done by model theorists somewhere. |

What are your favorite instructional counterexamples?
I was really glad when my analysis professor first showed this example; I had the same realization that you did. |

Thanks, Andrej; These are all really fun... now to pick them apart and internalize them. |

Value of “of course” in the mathematical literature
I read the "of course" in that sentence to be something to counter what was said previously: "(Some statement about irreducible modules); of course [i.e. however,], every irreducible module is completely reducible. |

Non-principal ultrafilters on ω
Thanks, indeed, François. That gives a more solid answer to my first question. |
