1. In domain theory, the sum A + B of two domains contains all elements of both domains, modified to indicate which part of the union they come from, plus a new bottom element. There are two constructor functions associated with the sum:
inA : A -> A+B inB : B -> A+B inA(a) = (0,a) inB(b) = (1,b)
and a disassembly operation:
case d of isA(x) -> E1; isB(x) -> E2
This can be generalised to arbitrary numbers of domains.
See also smash sum, disjoint union.
