Takeuchi product

Given an associative algebra $A$, with enveloping algebra $A^e = A\otimes A^{op}$, the Takeuchi product $\times_A$ is certain product in the category of $A$-rings. It generalizes a construction of M. E. Sweedler where $A$ is commutative; Sweedler’s article may be itself viewed in a sense a “generalization of the relative Brauer group and the associated theory”.

Takeuchi product is used in the theory of associative bialgebroids over noncommutative base.
