## Theorem

Let $I$ be an indexing set.

For all $i \in I$, let $A_i$ and $B_i$ be sets such that $A_i \preccurlyeq B_i$.

Here, $\preccurlyeq$ denotes domination.

Then:

- $\ds \bigsqcup_{i \mathop \in I} A_i \preccurlyeq \bigsqcup_{i \mathop \in I} B_i$

where $\bigsqcup$ denotes disjoint union.

## Proof

By definition of domination, for all $i \in I$, there exists an injection $\iota_i: A_i \to B_i$.

Thus the mapping $\ds \iota : \bigsqcup_{i \mathop \in I} A_i \to \bigsqcup_{i \mathop \in I} B_i$ defined by:

- $\map \iota {x, i} = \tuple {\map {\iota_i} x, i}$

is an injection.
