## An alternative proof of total2_paths_equiv

Theorem total2_paths_equiv' {A : UU} (B : A → UU) (x y : ∑ x, B x) :

x = y ≃ x ╝ y.

Proof.

simple refine (weqtotaltofib _ _ _ _ _).

- intros z p. ∃ (maponpaths pr1 p). induction p. reflexivity.

- apply isweqcontrcontr.

+ apply iscontrcoconusfromt.

+ ∃ (x ,, idpath _ ,, idpath _).

intro w. induction w as [w p], w as [a b], p as [p q], x as [a' b'], (p:a' = a), (q:b' = b).

reflexivity.

Defined.

Lemma total2_paths_equiv'_compute {A : UU} (B : A → UU) (x y : ∑ x, B x) :

pr1weq (total2_paths_equiv' B x y) = (λ (r : x = y), base_paths _ _ r ,, fiber_paths r).

Proof.
