A construction of non-well-founded sets within Martin-löf's type theory

Journal of Symbolic Logic 54 (1):57-64 (1989)
In this paper, we show that non-well-founded sets can be defined constructively by formalizing Hallnäs' limit definition of these within Martin-Löf's theory of types. A system is a type W together with an assignment of ᾱ ∈ U and α̃ ∈ ᾱ → W to each α ∈ W. We show that for any system W we can define an equivalence relation = w such that α = w β ∈ U and = w is the maximal bisimulation. Aczel's proof that CZF can be interpreted in the type V of iterative sets shows that if the system W satisfies an additional condition (*), then we can interpret CZF minus the set induction scheme in W. W is then extended to a complete system W * by taking limits of approximation chains. We show that in W * the antifoundation axiom AFA holds as well as the axioms of CFZ -
