In science:

We take Hermida and Jacobs’ approach as our point of departure and show that, under slightly different assumptions on the fibration involved, we can lift any functor on the base category of a fibration to a functor on the total category of the fibration.
Generic Fibrational Induction
The data type of rose trees lies outside the scope of Hermida and Jacobs’ results because it is not polynomial.
Generic Fibrational Induction
It is also worth noting that the specialisations of our generic induction rule to polynomial functors in the families fibration over Set coincide exactly with the induction rules of Hermida and Jacobs.
