Given a dependent function f : (x : A) → B x and an identification p : x = y in A, we cannot directly compare the values f x and f y, since f x is an element of type B x while f y is an element of type B y. However, we can transport the value f x along p to obtain an element of type B y that is comparable to the value f y. In other words, we can consider the type of dependent identifications over p from f x to f y. The dependent action on identifications of f on p is a dependent identification

  apd f p : dependent-identification B p (f x) (f y).


Functorial action of dependent functions on identity types
