Dedicated to Per Martin-Lof on the occasion of his retirement.
Abstract. In this paper we define Martin-Lof complexes to be algebras for
monads on the category of (reflexive) globular sets which freely add cells in
accordance with the rules of intensional Martin-Lof type theory. We then
study the resulting categories of algebras for several theories. Our principal
result is that there exists a cofibrantly generated Quillen model structure on
the category of 1-truncated Martin-Lof complexes and that this category is
Quillen equivalent to the category of groupoids. In particular, 1-truncated
Martin-Lof complexes are a model of homotopy 1-types. In order to establish
these facts we give a proof-theoretic analysis, using a modified version of Tait's
logical predicates argument, of the propositional equality classes of terms of
identity type in the 1-truncated theory.
