The intersection of two subtypes A and B is the subtype that contains the elements that are in A and in B.


The intersection of two subtypes

module _
  {l1 l2 l3 : Level} {X : UU l1} (P : subtype l2 X) (Q : subtype l3 X)

  intersection-subtype : subtype (l2  l3) X
  intersection-subtype = meet-powerset-Large-Locale P Q

  is-greatest-binary-lower-bound-intersection-subtype :
      ( powerset-Large-Poset X)
      ( P)
      ( Q)
      ( intersection-subtype)
    ( pr1
      ( is-greatest-binary-lower-bound-intersection-subtype R)
      ( p , q) x r) =
    p x r
    ( pr1
      ( is-greatest-binary-lower-bound-intersection-subtype R)
      ( p , q) x r) = q x r
  pr1 (pr2 (is-greatest-binary-lower-bound-intersection-subtype R) p) x r =
    pr1 (p x r)
  pr2 (pr2 (is-greatest-binary-lower-bound-intersection-subtype R) p) x r =
    pr2 (p x r)

The intersection of two decidable subtypes

module _
  {l l1 l2 : Level} {X : UU l}

  intersection-decidable-subtype :
    decidable-subtype l1 X  decidable-subtype l2 X 
    decidable-subtype (l1  l2) X
  intersection-decidable-subtype P Q x = conjunction-Decidable-Prop (P x) (Q x)

The intersection of a family of subtypes

module _
  {l1 l2 l3 : Level} {X : UU l1}

  intersection-family-of-subtypes :
    {I : UU l2} (P : I  subtype l3 X)  subtype (l2  l3) X
  intersection-family-of-subtypes {I} P x = Π-Prop I  i  P i x)
