The slice of a category over an object X is the category of morphisms into X. A morphism in the slice from f : A → X to g : B → X consists of a function h : A → B such that the triangle f ~ g ∘ h commutes. We make these definitions for types.


The objects of the slice category of types

Slice : (l : Level) {l1 : Level} (A : UU l1)  UU (l1  lsuc l)
Slice l = type-polynomial-endofunctor (UU l)  X  X)

The morphisms in the slice category of types

  hom-slice f g = Σ (A  B)  h  f ~ (g  h))

    (f : A  X) (g : B  X)  hom-slice f g  A  B
  map-hom-slice f g h = pr1 h

  triangle-hom-slice :
    (f : A  X) (g : B  X) (h : hom-slice f g) 
    f ~ g  map-hom-slice f g h
