Assume I have a subset of fin n of cardinality k. I would like to get the increasing map fin k -> fin n that parameterizes it. Is it already in mathlib? Otherwise, my approach would be first to do it for infinite subsets of (to avoid dealing with emptiness issues and option), and then reduce to this case by extending my subset of fin n to a subset of by filling on the right, and then taking the first k elements of the resulting parameterization on . But I guess some people might complain that this approach does not compute well...

You can sort a finset, and then use nth to get the elements in numeric order. There is a bit of plumbing to make the domain fin k specifically but not too much, especially if computation doesn't matter
