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


Unions of subtypes

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

  union-subtype : subtype l1 X  subtype l2 X  subtype (l1  l2) X
  union-subtype P Q x = disj-Prop (P x) (Q x)

Unions of decidable subtypes

    decidable-subtype l1 X  decidable-subtype l2 X 
    decidable-subtype (l1  l2) X
  union-decidable-subtype P Q x = disj-Decidable-Prop (P x) (Q x)

Unions of families of subtypes

The union of families of subtypes preserves indexed inclusion

module _
  {l1 l2 l3 l4 : Level} {X : UU l1} {I : UU l2}
  (A : I  subtype l3 X) (B : I  subtype l4 X)
