    I noticed only now that the entry bimodule is in bad shape and needs some attention. For the moment I have added here a mentioning of the 2-category of algebras, bimodules and intertwiners and a pointer to the Eilenberg-Watts theorem.

    I quote from the current entry:

    Remark 4.2. As this notation suggests, BMod RBMod_R is naturally the vertical category of a pseudo double category whose horizontal composition is given by tensor product of bimodules. spring

    Does anyone know what the ’spring’ is doing at the end or should it be deleted?

  1. It’s a device Urs uses sometimes when editing, I think to remember where to begin again from after stopping. If it’s still there after some time, it can be deleted!

    Right, sorry, thanks for catching. Have removed it now.

    corrected typo. Sorry, I didn’t think that typos don’t require a comment.

    Are RR-bimodules definable for non-associative unital integer algebras RR? Current definitions only assume RR to be an associative unital integer algebra, but the definition of a Jordan superalgebra requires RR to not be associative.

    There is a weird definition of tensor product of bimodules over rings in this entry. I think it’s not correct. (At least, I don’t think it’s the definition of the standard tensor product.)

    Oof. Thanks for pointing this out, J-B.

    On the other hand, what you wrote isn’t what we normally understand by the tensor product of bimodules, either. It should be A NBA \otimes_N B. I’ll come back to correct in a while, if no one else has.

    Oh, I wasn’t sure about that. Maybe you must define A NBA \otimes_{N} B as the coequalizer of Aλ B,ρ AB:ANBABA \otimes \lambda^{B}, \rho^{A} \otimes B: A \otimes N \otimes B \rightarrow A \otimes B?

    Re #10:

    This seems to originate in revision 36 from May 2022, part of about a dozen of anonymous edits.

    More corrections under Tensor Product, and mention that monoids and bimodules between them form a bicategory, and that this construction can in turn be generalized to profunctors.
