if there's relation between 3 entities a,b,c and you decompose it to a->b and a->c and then join them, then the result will be not less than the original relation.

> Where is it used? In Normalization ?

The above is application to relational area. The theorem itself is formulated in abstract terms, so, like every mathematical fact, it may be used wherever is applicable,
