Given a type family B over A, an identification p : x = y in A and an element b : B x, we can transport the element b along the identification p to obtain an element tr B p b : B y.

The fact that tr B p is an equivalence is recorded on this page.


Transport is an equivalence

module _
  {l1 l2 : Level} {A : UU l1} (B : A  UU l2) {x y : A}

  inv-tr : x  y  B y  B x
  inv-tr p = tr B (inv p)

  is-retraction-inv-tr : (p : x  y)  inv-tr p  tr B p ~ id
  is-retraction-inv-tr refl b = refl

  is-section-inv-tr : (p : x  y)  tr B p  inv-tr p ~ id
  is-section-inv-tr refl b = refl

  is-equiv-tr : (p : x  y)  is-equiv (tr B p)
  is-equiv-tr p =
      ( inv-tr p)
      ( is-section-inv-tr p)
      ( is-retraction-inv-tr p)

  equiv-tr : x  y  B x  B y
  pr1 (equiv-tr p) = tr B p
  pr2 (equiv-tr p) = is-equiv-tr p

Transporting along refl is the identity equivalence

equiv-tr-refl :
  {l1 l2 : Level} {A : UU l1} (B : A  UU l2) {x : A} 
  equiv-tr B refl  id-equiv {A = B x}
equiv-tr-refl B = refl

Computing transport of loops

tr-loop :
  {l1 : Level} {A : UU l1} {a0 a1 : A} (p : a0  a1) (q : a0  a0) 
  tr  y  y  y) p q  (inv p  q)  p
tr-loop refl q = inv right-unit
