In science:

If X, Y ⊆ M are right C -subcomodules, then the right C -subcomodule (X :C M Y ) is called the internal coproduct of X and Y in the category MC of right C -comodules.
Fully Coprime Comodules and Fully Coprime Corings
Likewise with right generic. X is generic if it is both left and right generic. A partial type Σ(x) implying x ∈ G is left (right) generic if every formula in Σ(x) is.
Groups, measures, and the NIP
Then (A, ϕ) is both a left and a right comonad-morphism from C to C′ . (ii) From the definition one can immediately see that a right comonad-morphism (m, ρ) from B to C, where B = (B , B , B , B ) is the trivial B–comonad, is nothing else than a right C–comodule of B–type.
Galois theory in bicategories
The exactness of the top row can be deduced from the fact that m •d n is right p–, right e– and right e •C p–pure.
Galois theory in bicategories
The left (right) part has a length L1 (L3 ) and a uniform width WL (WR ), connected to the left (right) lead with the same width. A finite difference between the widths of the left and right parts of the waveguide (WL and WR ) is essential for the proposed device.

From the proof of Proposition 4.1, it is easily seen that the right A-modules ex eA admit a structure of right B module coming from its right C-coaction.

Lemma. (a) The right representation of KKK(Mh,ζ ) on KKK(Nh,ζ ) extends uniquely to an admissible right representation of bKKK(Mh,ζ ) on KKK(Nh,ζ ). (b) The right CH-module χh,ζ ⊗Rt H belongs to OOOh,ζ (H). (c) There is an isomorphism of right H-modules χh,ζ ⊗Rt H ≃ Φ• h,ζ (CKKK(Nh,ζ )).

M ′ ) are isomorphic as right H-modules then M , M ′ are isomorphic as right C bKKK(Mh,ζ )-modules, because they are isomorphic as right Φh,ζ (CH)-modules and Φh,ζ (CH) is a dense subring of the topological ring C bKKK(Mh,ζ ).
Double affine Hecke algebras and affine flag manifolds, I
