\begin{abstract}
We can regard operations that discard information, like specializing
to a particular case or dropping the intermediate steps of a proof, as
{\sl projections}, and operations that reconstruct information as {\sl
liftings}. By working with several projections in parallel we can
make sense of statements like ``$\Set$ is the archetypal Cartesian
Closed Category'', which means that proofs about CCCs can be done in
the ``archetypal language'' and then lifted to proofs in the general
setting. The method works even when our archetypal language is
diagrammatical, has potential ambiguities, is not completely
formalized, and does not have semantics for all terms. We illustrate
the method with an example from hyperdoctrines and another from
synthetic differential geometry.

{\sl My memory is limited, and not very dependable: I often have to
rededuce results to be sure of them, and I have to make them fit in
as little ``mental space'' as possible...}
Different people have different measures for ``mental space''; someone
with a good algebraic memory may feel that an expression like
%
$\Frobnat: Æ_f(P´f^*Q) \xton{\cong} Æ_fP´Q$
%
%
% $$Æ_f(P´f^*Q) \xton{\cong} Æ_fP´Q$$
%
is easy to remember, while I
%
% --- let's construct a semi-fictional ``I'' on the course of this
% --- paper, and analyze how this ``I'' thinks --- again: while I
%
always think diagramatically, and so what I do is
that I remember this diagram,
$$\includegraphics[scale=0.5]{frob-sketch.eps}$$

\noindent
and I reconstruct the formula from it.
\msk
I cannot yet define precisely what it is to ``think diagramatically'',
but for the purposes of this paper a loose definition --- or rather, a
set of concepts and techniques for diagrammatical thinking, plus
non-trivial consequences of ``thinking'' in that way --- shall do. I
will resort to a narrative device: {\sl I will speak as from a
semi-fictional ``I'' who thinks as diagramatically as possible, and
who always uses diagrams as a help for his bad algebraic thinking.}

Take the concept of ``projection'', from the realm of covering spaces
or from Linear Algebra. A projection map discards information ---
coordinates, maybe --- and may collapse objects that were originally
distinct.
% When I represent projections diagrammatically
I try to organize my diagrams to make the projection arrows --- most
of them, at least --- go down. Figure [2-100-99] is an example.
{\sl Specialization} acts like a projection. Look at the top arrow in
Fig.\ 1: except for the choice of a particular value for $n$, we have
only lost information. {\sl Discarding intermediate steps}, as in the
bottom arrow, is a kind of {\sl erasing}, and erasings are evidently
projections.

The opposite of {\sl to project} is {\sl to lift}; projecting is easy,
lifting is hard. A projection map, $p: E \to B$, may have any number
of preimages for a point $b$ in the base space --- one, many, none
---, and, to make things worse, we will often be interested in very
specific cases where we are somehow able to recognize whether a given
lifting is ``good'' or not --- for example, we may be looking for the
``right'' generalization for $2^{100}-2^{99} = 2^{99}$ ---, but where
we are unable to define exactly what a ``good lifting'' is.

\mysection {Downcased Types} {dn-types}
Suppose that we have a point $pÝA×B$ and a function $f:B \to C$. There
is a single ``obvious'' way to build a point of $C$ starting from this
data. It is ``obvious'' because we have a search method that finds it;
it is related to proof search ({\sl via} the Curry-Howard
isomorphism). Here's how it works, briefly and informally.
\widemtos
A point $pÝA×B$ is a pair made of an `$a$' and a `$b$'. If we allow
``long names'' for variables we can replace the `$p$' by another name,
that reflects its type more closely; so let's rename `$p$' to `$a,b$'.
Similarly, an $f:B \to C$ is an operation that takes each `$b$' to a
`$c$', so let's rename `$f$' to `$b \mto c$'. Now, with this new
notation, we are looking for an operation that takes an `$a,b$' and a
`$b \mto c$' and produces a term that ``deserves the name'' `$c$'. We
start at the tree in the lower right rectangle in Figure [Two], and we
want to arrive at the tree in the lower left; both trees have the same
shape, and by relating them we will see that the term corresponding to
$c$ is $f('p)$. Note that in this new language --- ``Downcased
Types'' --- we have no syntactical distinction between variables and
non-atomic terms.

$$\text{Figure [Two]}$$
All the solid arrows in Figure [Two] are erasings. The dashed arrows
are ``uppercasings'' when we go rightwards, ``downcasings'' when we go
to the left; note that `$×$' is downcased to `$,$', and `$\to$' is
downcased to `$\mto$'. If we start at the lower left and we move right
through the dashed arrow, we get the types of the (three) objects
involved; what we still need to do from there is a kind of ``term
inference''...
``Type inference'' is very well-known, and polymorphic languages like
Haskell and ML implement algorithms for it; ``term inference'', on the
other hand, is rarely mentioned in the literature, but techniques like
parametricity (\cite{WadlerTfF}, \cite{Bernardy10}) provide useful
meta-theorems about properties that all possible inferrable terms must
obey. It would be lovely if these techniques could do term inference
for us, algorithmically --- but they can't, so when we need to infer
terms we usually do the work by hand.
As term inference is hard, let's turn our attention to something
easier, and looser. ``Inference'' carries the connotation of something
that can be done algorithmically, without any previous knowledge of
the result. We will focus on the process of ``reconstructing'' the
desired term, $c \equiv f('p)$, from the downcased tree in the lower
left of Figure [Two]. A ``reconstruction'' may need hints to be
completed, and may depend on making the right choices at some points,
motivated by unformalizable bits of common sense, or by intuition,
hindsight, or by vague rememberances, by a sense of good style, or
whatever else. A ``reconstruction'' is the result of an {\sl
incomplete} algorithm (or a ``method'', rather than an
``algorithm''); when we perfect a method for reconstruction, and
finish filling up all its gaps, it becomes an ``inference algorithm''.
For our purposes, ``reconstruction'' will be enough --- and real
``inference'' will be close to impossible.
% Amazingly, for our purposes, ``reconstruction'' will be enough ---
% and real ``inference'' seems to be impossible.

% (sec "The Dictionary" "dictionary")
\mysection {The Dictionary} {dictionary}
The downcased notation has to be used with care, as it doesn't come
with any built-in devices to protect us from ambiguities. For example,
we could have tried to find a term ``deserving the name'' `$a,a \mto
a,a$' --- and there are four different ones!...
One way to avoid this problem is to consider that the downcased
``names'' are just that, {\sl names}, and that we have a {\sl
dictionary} that associates to each name its {\sl meaning}.
In the case of $ð$-calculus, a dictionary relating each downcased name
to its meaning can be extracted from a derivation tree (if all the
rule names are present), and the derivation tree can be reconstructed
from its associated dictionary. For example,
%:
%: a,b p
%: ---' ---'
%: b b|->c 'p f
%: ----------\app -------\app
%: c f('p)

\angg{c} &:=& \angg{b \mto c}\angg{b} \\

\diag{dict-1}
$$
%
and if we add to that dictionary the entries
%
$$\begin{array}{rcl}
\angg{a,b} &:=& p \\
\angg{b \mto c} &:=& f \\
\end{array}
$$
%
then we can reconstruct the tree
%
$$\ded{dict-1-std}$$
%
from that. Note that we use double angle brackets, $\angg{·}$, to
separate names from one another and to distinguish them from standard
notation, and that we use `$\equiv$' to indicate change of notation
--- usually between downcased and standard.

\mysection {Internal Diagrams} {internal}
Several of the initial ideas for the system of downcased types came
from attempts to formalize something that I will call ``physicist's
notation'', and that should be familiar to most readers; I have never
seen any detailed formalizations of it, though.
Suppose that we have a function $f:\R \to \R$, and we draw the graph
of $y=f(x)$. Then, given points $x_0$, $x_1$, $x_2$, $x'$ on the
``$x$-axis'' we have default meanings for the names $y_0$, $y_1$,
$y_2$, $y'$: namely, $y_0 := f(x_0)$, $y' := f(x')$, and so on. It
makes sense to write $X$ for the domain of $f$ and $Y$ for its
codomain, and if we draw the ``internal diagram'' (as in
\cite{LawvereSchanuel}, p.14) of the map $f$, we get this:

Note that for each name like $x_2$ of a point in the $x$-axis (the
``space of `$x$'s'', $X$) we have chosen a similar name for a point in
the $y$-axis (the ``space of `$y$'s'', $Y$). We will call the implicit
operation on names the {\sl syntactical action} of the function $f
\equiv x \mto y$; in the case above, the syntactical action replaced
the `$x$' of each original name into a `$y$', and kept all the
``decorations'' unchanged. The syntactical action does not need to be
defined for all possible names of points in $X$ --- in fact, we
restrict ourself to ``good'' names of points in $X$ exactly to make
the syntactical action easier to describe.
Now let's take a function less abstract: $\sqrtdot: \N \to \R$. Its
action is implicit in its name (``$\sqrtdot$''), and if we examine its
internal diagram,

we may conclude that it should be possible to use `$n \mto \sqrt{n}$'
as its name; or even `$2 \mto \sqrt{2}$' --- ``the function that takes
2 to $\sqrt{2}$, for every value of `2'\,''...
\bsk
As the reader may have guessed, there is no clear separation between
what are ``good names'' and ``bad names'' for an object; instead we
have a murky line. We have just seen in the first example that
`$x_0$', `$x'$', etc, can all be downcasings for `$X$', and maybe the
`$1$' in second example, if taken as a name, should be uppercaseable
both as $\N$ and as $\R$... The trick is all in our use of the
dictionary: we {\sl can} define the meaning of `$n \mto \sqrt{n}$' to
be $\sqrtdot:\N \to \R$, and, if we feel that $\#_\$^!$ is a good name
for the square root, we can define it to stand for the square root
too...

We are using two notations --- downcased and standard --- in parallel;
it is possible to use more. One way to visualize what is going on is
to think in terms of computer interfaces. Imagine a user inspecting
huge data structures by displaying them on a computer screen in
several forms --- he can toggle switches that control what gets shown
and what is omitted.
The downcased notation of the previous sections is {\sl my} compromise
between {\sl my} intuition and a formalization. Suppose that someone
has created a third notation, that he claims that is much closer to
{\sl his} intuitions. He can set the controls to display only his
favorite notation, as in the left side of the diagram below; or he can
display all together at the same time --- as at the top.

Working with three parallel notations is similar to working with two.
\msk
At this point our two notations, downcased and standard, generate
trees with exactly the same shapes; in the next section we will begin
to compare diagrams done in different notations, but the same shapes;
and starting on section \ref{hyps} the parallelism will be looser ---
there will be correspondences between trees and dictionaries, on one
side, and ``strictly 2-dimensional'' categorical diagrams, on another.
In all cases it is convenient to work in a ``projected view'', yet
pretend that we are in the situation with total information --- that
the rest of the information ``is there'', but hidden.

\mysection {Functors} {functors}
Fix a set $A$. It induces a functor $(A×)$, that takes each set $B$ to
$A×B$ and each function $f:B \to C$ to a function $(A×)f:A×B \to A×C$.
Let's use the subscripts `0' and `1' to distinguish the two actions of
a functor: $(A×)_0$ is its action on objects (sets, in this case),
$(A×)_1$ is its action on morphisms (i.e., on functions).
It is quite common in the literature of Category Theory to see things
like: ``let $(A×):\Set \to \Set$ the functor that takes each set $B$
to $A×B$''. The action on morphisms is not described --- it is
``obvious'', and it is left to the reader to discover. The reader
should apply a kind of search algorithm to find it. Which algorithm is
this?
Let's downcase this problem. The action on objects takes each ``space
of `$b$'s'' to a ``space of `$a,b$'s''; its syntactical action is to
prepend an `$a,$'. The action on morphisms takes each $b \mto c$ to an
$a,b \mto a,c$ --- i.e., the syntactical action on morphisms consists
of applying the syntactical action on objects to both the domain and
the codomain. {\sl This is a general pattern:} in all functors the two
syntactical actions will be related in this way.

The diagram is very similar to the ones in the previous section, but
there the blobs were sets and they had points; now the blobs --- which
we are no longer drawing --- are categories, that have objects, and
between these objects we may have {\sl morphisms}. Also, the
downcasing is changing the notation more than before, and we are
downcasing the `$\mto$'s that were functor actions as `$\funto$'...
the `$\funto$' is to remind us that: 1) something non-obvious is going
on --- points of $B$ are not being taken to points of $A×B$, instead
the whole set $B$ was fed into $(A×)_0$, and we got back $A×B$ ---,
and 2) that `$b \funto a,b$' is {\sl two} actions.
\msk
So, we know just the ``name'' of the action on morphisms of this
functor. How do we reconstruct its ``meaning''? The answer is obtained
by liftings:

\mysection {Natural Transformations} {nts}
Now fix two sets, $A$ and $A'$, and a map $\aa: A \to A'$. We have
natural constructions for functors $(A×)$ and $(A'×)$, and, besides
that, a natural transformation (``NT'', from now on), $(\aa×)$, going
from $(A×)$ to $(A'×)$. An NT has a {\sl single} action, that takes
{\sl objects} to {\sl morphisms}.
We will need a convention. if $X$ and $Y$ are objects of a category
$\catC$, then both $f:X \to Y$ and $X \ton{f} Y$ will denote a
morphism, but $X \to Y$ denotes the full hom-set $\Hom_\catC(X, Y)$.
With that convention, if $F,G: \catA \to \catB$ are functors and $T:F
\tondot G$ is a NT, we can represent the internal view of $T$ as:
%
$$A \mapsto (FA \ton{TA} GA).$$
Let's take the convention up one level: $A \tondot (FA \ton{TA} GA)$
will denote a specific NT, but $A \tondot (FA \to GA)$ will mean the
class of all NTs from $F$ to $G$; and we downcase `$\tondot$' as
`$\tnto$'. Diagrammatically:

We know the ``syntactical action'' of $(\aa×)$: it is $B \mto (A{×}B
\ton{\aa{×}B} A'{×}B)$ in standard notation, $b \tnto (a,b \mto a',b)$
after downcasing. To obtain a ``meaning'' for that we can apply the
same procedure as in the previous section; we discover that $\aa{×}B
\; := \; ðp:A{×}B.\ang{f(p),'p}$.
Now let's look at the notations for the general case. Let $F,G: \catA
\to \catB$ be functors, and $T: F \tondot G$ be an NT between them.
Everything is similar, but we need a way to downcase the objects $FA$
and $GA$... a good choice is as `$a^F$' and `$a^G$' --- because the
idea of ``an $a^F$'' {\sl suggests nothing at all}, and so it reminds
us that the functors $F$ and $G$ may be abstract.

We often have to deal with categories whose objects don't have any
reasonable notion of ``elements''. If our $\catB$ is a category like
that, then $a^F \mto a^G$ will be a name for a morphism, but the names
`$a^F$' and `$a^G$' ``will not have semantics'' --- our dictionary
will not attribute any meanings to them. See \cite{Kromer}, especially
its sections 3.3.4.4 and 5.3.2.1, for a discussion; our downcased
notation is, in a sense, ``a language for diagram chasing''.

Just as a functor is two actions plus two properties --- namely, that
the action on morphisms respects identities and composition ---, a
natural isomorphism can be thought as two NTs going in opposite
directions, plus the assurance that their composites are identities;
the downcased squares for the $(×B) \dashv (B{\to})$ and $L \dashv R$
adjunctions in the diagrams above can be considered as being
(two-dimensional) downcased names themselves, having the same meaning
as their ``linearized'' versions,

A good way to understand how {\sl reconstruction} works is to think on
a simpler, more extreme case. When I reconstruct something that I have
half-forgotten, I do have vague memories about it... how do they act?
On the other hand, if I am reconstructing something that I have
received from someone else in an {\sl incomplete}, but {\sl
reconstructible}, form, then the vague memories are out of the
picture.

Consider the following diagram, which describes, in a simplistic way,
how a theorem $T$, discovered by an author $A$ and published in a
paper $P$, is read and understood by a reader $R$. In the diagram the
time flows to the left, and knowledge flows (roughly) downwards.

The theorem was discovered in the form $T_1$, but in order to make it
transmissible the author changed it a bit, and it became $T_2$, then
$T_3$ in written form, which was what got published. The author was
also slightly transformed in the process, and at the time of the
publication he had become $A_2$.
That particular theorem was difficult to state, so the reader $R_0$
started by understanding just parts of its statement; let's call that
preliminary object understood by our reader a ``statement with
holes''. Then, through weeks of study, more and more of the theorem's
statement, and of the proof of the theorem (let's use the term
``theorem'' to refer to both the statement and the proof), became
clear to $R$, up to the point where the object in $R$'s mind has
become $T'_1$, which no longer has any holes; all gaps have been
filled, the statement is now clearly a consequence of its proof, and
our reader $R$, who at this point has become a slightly different
person, $R_1$, now has even some {\it intuition} about the theorem
(whatever that means)...
Our reader $R$ has {\sl reconstructed}, in his mind, the author $A$'s
theorem, from what was published in the paper $P$. $R$'s task was
harder than the task I face when I try to reconstruct a theorem that
at some point I knew --- if I review all that I have studied before, I
{\sl should} be able to fill up all my gaps, but $R$ has no guarantee
that just by looking in the literature he will be able to find all the
missing knowledge he needs... even though we {\sl expect} published
papers to be clear enough, and complete enough.
The process of reconstruction performed by $R$ {\sl ought} to be
considered an algorithm --- even though we know that what $R$ did to
understand the paper $P$ was, at best, a ``method''.
%
Let's see why, by examining an ideal case.
% Let's treat an ideal case.
Suppose that the $A$ wanted to be clear, that he was lucid in his
choice of exposition, and that the paper $P$ was submitted to a
journal with no space constraints. So $A$, and also his editors and
referees, {\sl want} the paper $P$ to be as readable as possible. The
reader $R_0$ receives the paper $P$ being aware that the theorem $T_3$
in it should be readable, and starts to devote his time to understand
$T_3$. After a few weeks $R$ succeeds.
{\sl What did the reader $R$ do?} And what did $A$ and the journal's
editors do to be sure that $A$ would succeed in his task?
When $R$ checks the paper's details and fills up the gaps his process
is akin to {\sl proof search}, and thus a kind of {\sl lifting}...
What $R$ does is too complex to be formalizable as an ``algorithm'';
yet the author and the editors are aware of what their intended
readers are expected to be able to do, and they added to the paper
enough ``hints'' to let the readers succeed --- so the reader performs
a ``proof search with hints''. There are algorithms that do proof
searches with hints, so let's commit an abuse of language here and
take the analogy with algorithms seriously: the reader $R$ is
performing a proof search with hints, and $A$ provided enough hints in
the paper $P$ to be sure that, given $P$ as input, the reader $R$ will
check its theorems completing all the missing details, then stop.
% There's more, though.
Let's now suppose that both $A$ and $R$ are people whose thinking is
mostly diagrammatical, like the semi-fictional ``me''. How does does
$R$ (re)construct in his mind some ``intuition'' about the theorems?
The theorem $T_3$ was published in algebraic form, so part of $R$'s
task --- and he needs to do this to be able to fill the logical gaps
--- is to find the diagrams to let him reason about the paper; another
part of his task is to work out the details in the paper's examples;
for that he needs to take his ``general'' diagrams and apply them to
particular cases; this is {\sl specialization}, as in Section
\ref{projs-and-lifts}. What we call ``intuition'' should comprise the
ability to specialize, plus a lot more.

\mysection {Intuition} {intuition}
When $R$ finally understands the paper $P$ he would have developed
some ``intuitions'' about the theorem $T$. His intuitions may or may
not be the same as $A$'s, so let's name them differently: $I_A$ for
the author's intuitions, $I_R$ for the reader's.
Instead of taking the easy way and saying that ``it is impossible to
talk about what mathematical intuition is'', we will improvise a
simple model that will let us talk about {\sl some aspects} of having
intuition about a theorem. Let's suppose that that theorem $T$ says
that when the hypotheses $H_1$ and $H_2$ hold, then the conclusion
$C_2$ also does; and the proof of $T$ is made of two lemmas, $L_1$ and
$L_2$, and structured like this:
%
$$\ded{int-full}$$
%
so the stronger theorem $H_1 \land H_2 \vdash C_1 \land C_2$ is also
true. Note that the tree above represents $T'_1$, not $T_3$; $T_3$ was
written in a ``linear'', ``algebraic'' way, to comply with the usual
mathematical practice, even though both $A$ and $R$ tend to think
diagrammatically.
The reader $R_1$ is able to do several things with $T'_1$; most of
them can be understood diagrammatically, as movements through parts of
the diagram below. Let's use the following convention (that will hold
for this diagram only): a double bar with the name of a lemma at its
right will stand for {\sl all the steps in the lemma} --- they are
known, but are not visible ---, while a double bar without a label
will mean a situation where the intermediate steps are not known at
that moment, and will have to be reconstructed.

The center box is a sketch of the full proof, and the small box below
it is the statement of the full theorem. If the reader $R_1$ remembers
any of those, he can reconstruct the other one by projecting or
lifting through (5). The box at the top is the full proof, and $R_1$
can reconstruct it by completing the sketch of the proof, lifting
through (2).
One day $R_1$ decides to present the theorem to some colleagues. He
assigns a temporal order to the lemmas: ``Lemma $L_1$ has to be
presented first''. Its statement and its proof are obtained by
projecting through (1) and (4). Note that (1) is a case of {\sl
zooming in} into a part of the proof.
$R_1$ is also able to {\sl use} the theorem. He can apply it to a
particular case, projecting through (3) and (6) or just through (3)
(compare that with the arrow (3) in Figure [Fib]). He can also
reuse the {\sl structure} of parts of the proof, but changing the
theorem in deeper ways (e.g., in the Curry-Howard isomorphism); this
is not shown above.
We will pretend that ``having intuition about a theorem'' means having
the abilities discussed above: remembering parts, reconstructing,
zooming out, zooming it, temporal order, transmission, specializing,
reusing the structure.

\mysection {Hyperdoctrines} {hyps}
Let's take the {\sl beginning} of the definition of a hyperdoctrine
(\cite{LawvereAdjFo}, \cite{LawvereEqHyp}, \cite{SeelyBeck},
\cite{TaylorPhDThesis}, \cite{Jacobs}). A hyperdoctrine is a cloven
fibration $p:\bbE \to \bbB$, where the ``base category'' $\bbB$ has
finite products and each fiber $\bbE_B$ is cartesian closed, plus for
each morphism $f:A \to B$ in $\bbB$ adjoints $Æ_f \dashv f^* \dashv
å_f$ for the change-of-base functor $f^*$, {\sl plus more structure};
but let's skip the ``plus more structure'' part for the moment --- we
will describe that extra structure briefly at the end of this section,
and the full details can be found at \cite{OchsDownHyp} and
\cite{OchsUniLog}.
It turns out that this definition {\sl generalizes} a familiar object:
the ``codomain fibration'', $\Cod: \Setmto \to \Set$ --- that we will
abbreviate as $\Pred$ --- is a hyperdoctrine. Actually $\Pred$ can be
considered to be the {\sl archetypical} hyperdoctrine, in a sense that
can be made precise; we will return to ``generalizations'' and
``archetypes'' in Section \ref{archetypal}.
An object $P$ of $\Setmto$ is a monic: $P \equiv (A' \monicto A)$. A
morphism $P \to Q$ in $\Setmto$, where $Q \equiv (B' \monicto B)$, is
a pair of arrows $(f':A' \to B', f:A \to B)$ making the obvious square
commute. The projection functor $\Cod$ takes $P \equiv (A' \monicto
A)$ to $A$ and $(f',f):P \to Q$ to $f$.
A monic with codomain $A$, $(A' \monicto A)$, is said to be a {\sl
subobject} of $A$. In $\Set$ we have {\sl canonical subobjects} ---
the ones whose maps are inclusions --- and we can think of them as
being {\sl predicates} over sets. We will have a special shorthand for
predicates: instead of writing, for example,
%
$$\sst{(x,y)ÝX×Y}{P(x,y)} \ito X×Y$$
%
we will write just:
%
$$\ssst{x,y}{Pxy}$$
%
The double bar in `$\ssst{x,y}{Pxy}$' is to remind us that this is two
objects, plus a map; and we write the `$\monicto$' as `$\ito$' when we
want to stress that the map is an inclusion.
\msk
We will draw objects of $\bbE$ above their projections, and we'll
usually omit the projection arrows. We will downcase a predicate like
`$\ssst{x,y}{Pxy}$' in diagrams as just `$P(x,y)$' --- the `$x,y$'
part can be recovered by looking down.
Let's focus on what happens in $\Pred$. For a map $f: A \to B$ in
$\bbB$, the change-of-base functor $f^*$ takes each predicate
$\ssst{b}{P(b)}$ over $B$ to a predicate $\ssst{a}{P(f(a))}$ over $A$.
When $f$ is a projection map, like $:X×Y \to X$, the adjoints $Æ_$
and $å_$ ``are'' $Îy$ and $ýy$; when $f$ is the ``diagonal'' map
$\DD:B \to B×B$ or the ``dependent diagonal'' $\dd:A×B \to A×B×B$, the
adjoints ``are'' the operations `$b{=}b'´$' and `$b{=}b'¶$'. This is
not hard to believe if we start with the right examples, and we check
first the particular cases and then generalize. Take
$X=\{0,1,2,3,4\}$, $Y=\{3,4\}$, $A=\{0\}$, $B=\{0,1,2,3\}$, and let's
use a positional notation for predicates: we will write $\ssst{x,y}{x
\ge y}$ as $\sm{00001\\00011}$, i.e.:
$$\def\pr#1{#1}
\def\ph#1{\phantom{#1}}
\def\dmat#1#2{
\sm{
\pr{\{}#1\pr{,}\ph{\}}\\
\ph{\{}#2\pr{\}}\ph{,}\\
}}
%
\dmat{\ph{(0,4),(1,4),(2,4),(3,4),}\pr{(4,4)}}
{\ph{(0,3),(1,3),(2,3),}\pr{(3,3),(4,3)}}
%
\;\ito\;\,
%
\dmat{\pr{(0,4),(1,4),(2,4),(3,4),}\pr{(4,4)}}
{\pr{(0,3),(1,3),(2,3),}\pr{(3,3),(4,3)}}
$$
In the two diagrams below the left side shows the abstract view, the
right side shows a very particular case, and in the middle, in
downcased notation, we see how these change-of-base functors and their
adjoints act on arbitrary predicates.

Each arrow `$\bij$' above stands for two transpositions, one in each
direction. Let's establish another convention: $P \to f^*Q$ is an
hom-set, but $P \vdash f^*Q$ is (the name of) a morphism --- we have
$P \vdash f^*Q : P \to f^*Q$. With that convention we can write the
transpositions rules (cf.\ the ``mate rules'' in \cite{Jacobs}) as:
%:
%: Q|-å_R x;Qx|-ýy.Rxy
%: -------ý^\flat ------------ý^\flat
%: ^*Q|-R x,y;Qx|-Rxy

%:

$$\ded{Fa-sharp-std} \qquad \ded{Fa-sharp-dnc}$$
Note that `$\vdash$' has different meanings in standard and in
downcased notations. We will only use `$\vdash$' to refer to vertical
morphisms.

It turns out that it is possible to {\sl define} the adjoints $Æ_f

$Æ_$, $å_$, $Æ_$, $å_$: in $\Pred$,

The transpositions and the functor actions implicit in the adjunction
diagram above can be expressed as derived rules. The proof is hard
(see \cite{SeelyBeck}); we will see how to understand it
diagrammatically in \cite{OchsDownHyp}.
\bsk
What really matters here is: how were the diagrams above obtained?
Look at the figure below; it shows some of the projections involved.
We start with the definition in English, at the top. By representing
it diagrammatically (projection (1)) we lose the subtleties of the
English language --- see \cite{Freyd76} and \cite{FreydScedrov} for a
diagrammatic notation in which at least the quantifiers are preserved
--- but we add positional notation. The projections (3) and (4) are
specializations: we take $\bbE := \Setito$, $p := \Cod$, $A:=X×Y$, and
so on. The arrows (2) and (5) produce internal diagrams, as in the
section \ref{adjunctions}. The downcased diagrams are not shown;
Figure [Fib] is a map of interesting projections, and it could have been
far larger than it is.

The complete definition of a hyperdoctrine is what we have seen in the
last section, plus these {\sl properties}:
each $f^*$ preserves, modulo iso, the $§$, the $´$, and the $¶$ of
each fiber;
the Frobenius Property holds,
the Beck-Chevalley Condition holds.
We can regard these properties as {\sl structure}. They can all be
stated in the same way: for $f:A \to B$ in $\bbB$ and for predicates
$P$ and $Q$ over $B$, we have natural constructions $\Ptruenat$,
$\Pandnat$, $\Pimpnat$, $\Frobnat$, that produce arrows that we want
to be isos; so we establish rules $\Ptrue$, $\Pand$, $\Pimp$, $\Frob$,
that produce arrows going in the opposite directions of the previous
ones.

The natural construction for the $\Frobnat$ arrow is given by the
diagram below. Note that it shows both $\Frobnat$ (going rightwards,
shortened to just `$\nat$') and $\Frob$:

Similarly to what we have done in the section \ref{dictionary}, we can
extract from the diagram above a dictionary defining some names in
terms of the others; note that due to our conventions $P{´}f^*Q \to P$
is a hom-set, but $P{´}f^*Q \vdash P$ is a particular morphism, and we
can treat it as a name. By expanding the definitions in
$Æ_f(P{\land}f^*Q) \vdash (Æ_fP){\land}Q$, we obtain a definition for
the $\Frobnat$ rule:
%:
%: f Q f Q
%: ---\cob -----\cob
%: P f^*Q P f^*Q
%: --------- ------------'
%: P´f^*Q|-P f P´f^*Q|-f^*Q
%: -----------------Æ_f --------------{Æ_f}^\flat
%: Æ_f(P´f^*Q)|-Æ_fP Æ_f(P´f^*Q)|-Q
%: -------------------------------------\ang{,}
%: Æ_f(P´f^*Q)|-(Æ_fP)´Q
%:
%: ^Frobnat-std
%:
$$\begin{array}{l}
\ded{Frobnat-short-std} \quad := \\ \\
\phantom{OO}
\ded{Frobnat-std} \\
\end{array}
$$
The diagram also says that the arrow generated by the $\Frob$ rule is
inverse to the arrow generated by the (derived) rule $\Frobnat$. This
is by a convention: in a `$\leftrightarrows$' the two arrows are the
directions of an iso.

The statement of the Beck-Chevalley Condition (``BCC'' from now on) is
slightly more complex: it requires four arrows in $\bbB$. For any
commutative square in $\bbB$ as below,

and any object $P$ over $Z$, we have a natural construction for an
arrow:
%
$$\BCCLnat: Æ_{z'} f^{\prime*} P \to f^* Æ_z P$$
The rule $\BCCL$ says that when $f$, $f'$, $z$, $z'$ form a pullback
the arrow $\BCCLnat$ has an inverse, $\BCCL$:
%:
%: f z f' z' P

We will sometimes write $\BCCLnat$ and $\BCCL$ together as an iso, and
call that iso $\BCCL$ (by a slight abuse of language); and we simplify
the diagram for Beck-Chevalley by drawing only its square in $\bbB$
and on top of it the two faces of the cube in $\bbE$ that border on
the missing edge. We will sometimes draw the arrows generated by
$\Ptrue$, $\Pand$, $\Pimp$ and $\Frob$ as isos, too.

The main interest of hyperdoctrines is that they are exactly the
categories in which we can interpret (a certain system of typed,
intuitionistic) first-order logic. The proof of this includes a way to
interpret each deduction rule of first-order logic categorically, and
another ``translation'' going in the opposite direction.
Let's look at a tiny part --- possibly the hardest one --- of these
translations.
\msk
The rule for equality-elimination in Natural Deduction can be
formulated as this (\cite{SeelyBeck}, p.507):
%:
%: b=b' Qabb
%: ---=I -----------=E
%: b=b Qabb'
%:
%: ^=I ^=E
%:
$$\ded{=E}$$
Categorically, it will become this morphism (we will call it $\EqE$):
%
$$\ssst{a,b,b'}{b{=}b'{´}Qabb} \vdash \ssst{a,b,b'}{Qabb'}$$
There are three different natural constructions in a hyperdoctrine for
objects deserving the name $\ssst{a,b,b'}{b{=}b'{´}Qabb}$. We will use
this one in $\EqE$:
%:
%: \DD \ssst{b}{§} \dd \ssst{a,b,b'}{Qabb'}
%: ----------------Æ_0 -------------------------\cob
%: \opip \ssst{b,b'}{b=b'} \opi \ssst{a,b}{Qabb}
%: ------------------------\cob -----------------------\cob
%: \ssst{a,b,b'}{b=b'} \ssst{a,b,b'}{Qabb}
%: ---------------------------------------------------{´}
%: \ssst{a,b,b'}{b=b'´Qabb}
%:
%: ^=E-domain-pred
%:

%: b|->b,b' \ssst{b}{§} a,b|->a,b,b' \ssst{a,b,b'}{Qabb'}
%: ----------------Æ_0 -------------------------\cob
%: a,b,b'|->b,b' \ssst{b,b'}{b=b'} a,b,b'|->a,b \ssst{a,b}{Qabb}
%: --------------------------\cob -----------------------\cob
%: \ssst{a,b,b'}{b=b'} \ssst{a,b,b'}{Qabb'}
%: ---------------------------------------------------{´}
%: \ssst{a,b,b'}{b=b'´Qabb'}
%:
%: ^=E-domain-pred
%:
%:
%: \DD \TB \dd Q
%: --------Æ_0 ------\cob
%: \opip Æ_\DD\TB \opi \dd^*Q
%: ---------------\cob --------------\cob
%: \opipstar"Æ_\DD\TB \opistar\dd^*Q
%: -------------------------------------{´}
%: \opipstar"Æ_\DD\TB´\opistar\dd^*Q

Note that $\opi:A{×}B{×}B \to A{×}B$ is the projection on the first
two coordinates, and $\opip:A{×}B{×}B \to B{×}B$ the projection on the
last two coordinates. To show that the rule $\EqE$ can be interpreted
in a hyperdoctrine we need a way to construct, for arbitrary objects
$A$, $B$ in the base category and an arbitrary predicate $Q$ over
$A{×}B{×}B$, a morphism $\EqEdomwide \vdash Q$. We will construct it
as a composite of three maps.
% Let $f := \opip:A×B×B \to B×B$ be the projection on the two last
% coordinates, and
Take $P := \TB = \ssst{b}{§}$, $f:=\opistar$, $z:=\DD$, $z':=$,
$f':=\pi'$ in the diagram for Beck-Chevalley. Then the $\BCCL$ iso
says that {\sl two} different categorical constructions for
$\ssst{a,b,b'}{b=b'}$ are isomorphic, and by drawing also the $\Ptrue$
iso and its image by $Æ_\dd$ we get isos between the {\sl three}
different categorical constructions for $\ssst{a,b,b'}{b=b'}$:

Now look at the diagram below. The arrow $\Frob^{\prime\nat}$ (going
rightwards, shortened to $\nat$) is built in the same way as
$\Frobnat$, but using the maps $!$ and $\cong$ in place of $$ and
$'$. In any fibration we have natural isos $f^*g^*P \bij (f;g)^*P$
and $\id^*P \bij P$ (for {\sl diagrammatic} proofs for that, see
\cite{OchsDownHyp}), and as $;\opi=\id$, this gives us the map
$\cong$. The arrow $\Frob'$ is the inverse of $\Frob^{\prime\nat}$;
its construction (not shown) is an easy consequence of Frobenius. The
map $_Q$ is a counit for the adjunction $Æ_ \dashv ^*$.

\mysection {Archetypal Models} {archetypal}
Imagine that we have placed side to side the downcased and the
standard diagrams of the last section.
When we go from downcased to standard --- e.g, from
$\ssst{a,b}{b{=}b'´Qabb}$ to $Æ_^*Q$ --- we are attributing a
precise meaning to a (potentially ambiguous) ``name''; however, when
we go in the opposite direction, from standard to downcased, we are
``attributing meaning'' in another sense: we are giving an ``intuitive
meaning'' (or better: ``intuitive content'') to something that, if we
had received it in an article, as in the section \ref{transmission},
could have felt initially as something purely abstract...
I had to make some ``informal definitions'' in the course of this
paper, using terms that I could not define precisely, like {\sl
diagrammatical reasoning}, {\sl reconstruction}, and {\sl
intuition}... I will have to make a few more.
\begin{quote}
% (Informal) definition.
The {\sl archetypal model} for a structure --- for example, the
archetypal model for a hyperdoctrine, which is going to be $\Pred$
--- is {\sl a particular case of that structure that ``suggests'' a
certain ``language'' for working on that structure} --- i.e., for
doing constructions and proofs on it.
\end{quote}
That ``archetypical language'' does not need to be unambiguous ---
think in $\ssst{a,b}{b{=}b'´Qabb}$ and its several different precise
meanings ---, does not need to have a downcased version --- in section
\ref{hyps} the internal diagrams were what mattered, the downcasings
were mentioned just in passing ---, and does not need to be convenient
for expressing {\sl all} possible constructions. What is relevant is
that the archetypical language, {\sl when used side-to-side with the
``algebraic'' language}, should give us a way to reason, both {\sl
intuitively} and {\sl precisely}, about the structure we're working
on; in particular, it should let us formulate reasonable conjectures
quickly, and check them with reasonable ease... but what are
``reasonable conjectures'', and where do they come from?
If we want to be able to reconstruct a theory from minimal information
we need to have ways to: 1) generate ``reasonable conjectures'', 2)
filter out those which are either impossible or too hard to prove, 3)
prove the others. {\sl Bounded} proof search takes care of points (1)
and (2); to give a partial answer to (1) we will concentrate our
attention on Category Theory --- more specifically, on situations
where we are trying to generalize a ``base case''. There we have two
(non-disjoint) sources of ``reasonable conjectures'': 1a)
constructions and proofs that make sense and hold in the base case,
that we may expect to generalize; 1b) {\sl language}. Our choice of
names for objects in a hyperdoctrine gave us several different formal
meanings for $\ssst{a,b}{b{=}b'´Qabb}$ --- we expect them to be at
least equivalent modulo isomorphism. This is similar to writing
$a+b+c$ instead of $a+(b+c)$ or $(a+b)+c$: our choice of language
``suggests'' that $a+(b+c) = (a+b)+c$.
An ``archetypal example'', in which all the main ideas appear, is:
\begin{quote}
$\Set$ is the archetypical CCC.

A {\sl Cartesian Closed Category} $(\catC, ×, 1, \to)$ is a category
$\catC$ plus a ``cartesian closed structure'' $(×, 1, \to)$ on it. The

Each of its three parts can be attributed a precise meaning, as we did
with the adjunction square in section \ref{adjunctions}; and if we
regard each of them as a different adjunction (see \cite{Awodey},
pages 182 and 188, for the three adjunctions), then we get the
equations that these operations have to obey.
\msk
The Big Theorem is: {\sl CCCs are exactly the categorical models for
the simply-typed $ð$-calculus with pairs and unit}.
\msk
The precise, ``standard'' statement for that theorem, including
definitions, statements, and proofs, is quite long. Amazingly, it can
be reconstructed from just this downcased diagram,

Then the next steps are to state precisely:
the syntax and the rules of the type system,
the operations of a CCC,
the translation of each of the rules of the type system,
the translation of each of the operations of the CCC,
the reductions and conversions of the type system,
the equations obeyed by the operations of a CCC,
\noindent and then we have to prove that the CCC equations are
respected by the translation to $ð$-calculus, and that the
$ð$-calculus equations are respected by the translation to categories.
We also need to allow ``impurities'' in both the $ð$-calculus and in
the CCCs. Take a look at the CCC of the next section: it has extra
{\sl constants} --- an object $A$ and morphisms $\corn0$, $\corn1$,
$+$, $·$ --- that do not exist in all CCCs, and these constants obey
certain {\sl equations}. In a {\sl Pure Type System}
(\cite{GeuversPhD}) extra constants and equations are not allowed, but
in theorems like the Big Theorem above (\cite{Jacobs} has many more
like it) we allow in the type system exactly the kinds of constants
and equations that are easy to interpret in the categorical models.
The kinds of allowed ``impurities'' are usually defined in the
beginning, in the definition of the type system and of the categorical
structure, but this can be delayed until after the translations are
presented.

Our approach also works in cases where we do have an archetypical
language with clear intuitive content, but where we have no concrete
archetypical model besides a term model built purely syntactically.
Through this section let's pretend that we do not know Synthetic
Differential Geometry (\cite{Kock81}, \cite{BellSIA}, \cite{MoeRey}).
\msk
Let $(A, \corn0, \corn1, +, ·)$ be a commutative ring in a CCC. That
means: we have a diagram

%
and the morphisms $\corn0$, $\corn1$, $+$, $·$ behave as expected.
Let $D$ be the set of zero-square infinitesimals of $A$, i.e.,
$\sst{ÝA}{^2=0}$; $D$ can be defined categorically as an equalizer.
If we take $A:=\R$, then $D=\{0\}$; but if we let $A$ be a ring with
nilpotent infinitesimals, then $\{0\} \subsetneq A$.
% Our notation will suggest that we are in $\R$, though.
\msk
The main theorem of \cite{Kock77} says that if the map
%
$$\begin{array}{rrcl}
\aa: & A×A & \to & (D{\to}A) \\
& (a,b) & \mto & ð¨D.(a+b) \\
\end{array}
$$
%
is invertible, then we can use $\aa$ and $\aa³$ to {\sl define} the
derivative of maps from $A$ to $A$ --- {\sl every} morphism $f: A \to
A$ in the category $\catC$ will be ``differentiable'' ---, and the
resulting differentiation operation $f \mapsto f'$ behaves as
expected: we have, for example, $(fg)'=f'g+fg'$ and $(f¢g)' =
(f'¢g)g'$.
Commutative rings with the property that their map $\aa$ is invertible
are called {\sl ring objects of line type}. ROLTs are hard to
construct, so most of the proofs about them have to be done in a very
abstract setting. However, if we can use the following downcasings for
$\aa$ and $\aa³$ --- note that $\bb=(\aa³;)$, that $\cc=(\aa³;')$,
and that these notations do not make immediately obvious that $\aa$
and $\aa³$ are inverses ---,

then all the proofs in the first two sections of \cite{Kock77} can be
reconstructed from half-diagrammatic, half-$ð$-calculus-style proofs,
done in the archetypal language, where the intuitive content is clear.
This will be shown in a sequel to \cite{OchsDownHyp}.
% --------------------
% «database» (to ".database")
% (sec "A Database of Categorical Theorems" "database")
\mysection {A Database of Categorical Theorems} {database}
{\sl We, the people who think mostly diagrammatically, would like to
have a database of theorems from Category Theory, all presented in a
diagrammatical form.}
This database would include the theorems I know, the theorems I have
half-forgotten, and lots of theorems that I never knew, that were
added to the database by other people.
\msk
That database already exists, but in a non-ideal,
not-very-diagrammatical form: it is the published literature on
Category Theory. Each paper has its own notion of ``obviousness'':
when an author skips over details and claims that something is
obvious, he supposes --- in the spirit of section \ref{transmission}
--- that the reader will be able to fill up the gaps.
I started to work on this subject because my notion of ``obvious''
seemed to be too different from the ones that I could find in the
literature. The ``archetypal models'' being generalized are almost
always mentioned in the papers, but only in passing, and after all the
axioms having been laid down; all the formal arguments are made in the
abstract notation only; and informal notations can only be presented
when they are used to prove new nontrivial results, and when their
formalization has been completed --- but then they are not
``informal'' anymore, and they have been promoted to ``internal
languages'', ``term calculi'', ``proof nets'', ``circuit diagrams'',
etc (\cite{JoyalStreet} is an early example of an informal notation
made formal, with a nice discussion).
As each notion of ``obvious'' is backed by a method for proof search,
it ought to be possible to formalize --- even if roughly --- how each
such proof-search method would work; and each different notion of what
is ``obvious'' leads to a different way to present, and store,
theorems. The same theorem $T$ is remembered by a reader $R_1$ as
$T_1$ and by a reader $R_2$ as $T_2$; as the two readers reconstruct
the missing details the theorems grow to $T_1'$, $T_2'$, $T_1''$,
$T_2''$. If we could put these objects side to side we could clarify
how these different kinds of reasonings work.
{\sl It is possible to reason coherently with infinitesimals.} This
became clear when Non-Standard Analysis was invented, and then even
clearer when Synthetical Differential Geometry came up. One way to
prove that a way of reasoning is coherent is to model it
mathematically --- and to show that the model has good properties. NSA
and SDG ``validate'' reasonings with infinitesimals. Similarly, one
way to validate reasonings based on internal diagrams, archetypal
languages and informal notations is to formalize how these reasonings
work --- and to build bridges between them and the standard ways.
\msk
Diagrams like the ones in sections \ref{pres-frob-bcc} and
\ref{eq-elim} can be interpreted formally: a diagram induces a
dictionary, which induces trees, which then let us interpret each
object and arrow from the diagram as a $ð$-term. A full set of rules
for interpreting diagrams can be developed --- including ways to deal
with lists of exceptions and hints --- and so it would be conceivable
to have a database of categorical definitions and theorems in which
the entries would appear as diagrams (plus their associated hints),
but at the same time they would have precise meanings, understood by a
proof assistant...
Note that diagrams are becoming more and more meaningful
mathematically in the last decades. Compare these ideas with the
discussion in \cite{Kromer}, p.83, where he quotes this from
\cite{EilenbergSteenrod}, p.xi:
\begin{quote}
The diagrams incorporate a large amount of information. Their use
provides extensive savings in space and in mental effort. In the case of
many theorems, the setting up of the correct diagram is the major part
of the proof. We therefore urge that the reader stop at the end of each
theorem and attempt to construct for himself the relevant diagram before
examining the one which is given in the text. Once this is done, the
subsequent demonstration can be followed more readily; in fact, the
reader can usually supply it himself.

\mysection {Epilogue} {epilogue}
This is an atypical paper. It has no theorems, and it doesn't prove
any new mathematical truths --- instead, we have shown several ways to
represent constructions, and to structure proofs in several layers.
``Theorems'' usually involve {\sl equalities} between {\sl
constructions}, and hence they do not belong do the lowest layers;
there are even ways --- not detailed here --- to ``project out'' the
parts of a theorem that involve equalities, and keep only the
constructions... The result is a sort of a ``syntactical skeleton'' of
the theorem.
Our ``structuring'' puts a situation with total information at the
top, and below that, in different, parallel ``legs'', we put different
partial views. Theorems do not belong to the {\sl structuring},
either.
At some point we will have ``meta-theorems'' about properties of this
structuring. But finding these meta-theorems should not be top
priority right now: these meta-theorems will use known theorems, and
at this point it is more important to put more known theorems in this
format.
\msk
The above may look too vague, too philosophical (in contraposition to
``mathematical''), too abstract. Category Theory used to be called
``abstract nonsense''; the ideas of this paper, then, could look like
``meta-abstract nonsense''... However, we are not pointing only
towards the more abstract: we are showing ways --- and reasons --- to
do the {\sl general} in parallel with the {\sl particular}, and to
arrange the results of doing mathematics like that in forms that are
better for {\sl reconstruction} and {\sl transmission}.
Our structuring allows the controlled use of {\sl informal notations}.
Several different informal notations can be used in parallel at the
same time. This can be useful for comparing different people's
notations, and for changing details on a notation and letting it
evolve over time. The database of categorical knowledge proposed in
the last section does not need a unified notation, and one of its
functions could be to serve as a dictionary between notations --- and
as a way to make parts of the existing literature more accessible.
