In science:

The most simple one is the case of affine Lie superalgebras, for which all products but the h0i product vanish and the h0i product yields a Lie superalgebra structure on the finite-dimensional vector space of the quasi-primary vectors.

In this case all products but the h0i product and the h1i product vanish and they yield a left Clifford module structure on the finite-dimensional vector space of the quasi-primary vectors.

After constructing this twosided smash product A#H #B , we wanted to express it as some sort of diagonal crossed product (A ⊗ B ) ⊲⊳ H , and we were led naturally to consider a generalized diagonal crossed product A ⊲⊳ A, where A is an H -bimodule algebra and A is an H -bicomodule algebra.

Given two probability measures µ and µ′ on rooted networks and one of the standard notions of product networks, one can define the independent product µ ⊠ µ′ of the two measures by choosing a network from each measure independently and taking their product, rooted at the ordered pair of the original roots.
