Exchange of Order of Summation/Example

Let $R: \Z \to \set {\T, \F}$ and $S: \Z \to \set {\T, \F}$ be propositional functions on the set of integers.

Let $\ds \sum_{\map R i} x_i$ denote a summation over $R$.

Let the fiber of truth of both $R$ and $S$ be infinite.

Then it is not necessarily the case that:

$\ds \sum_{\map R i} \sum_{\map S j} a_{i j} = \sum_{\map S j} \sum_{\map R i} a_{i j}$
