Abstract: This paper proves the formulae

$\displaystyle \operatorname{reg}(IJ)$ $\displaystyle \le \operatorname{reg}(I) + \operatorname{reg}(J),$    
$\displaystyle \operatorname{reg}(I \cap J)$ $\displaystyle \le \operatorname{reg}(I) + \operatorname{reg}(J)$    

for arbitrary monomial complete intersections $ I$ and $ J$, and provides examples showing that these inequalities do not hold for general complete intersections.
