Abstract: A result of Haagerup, generalizing a theorem of Takesaki, states the following: If are von Neumann algebras, then there exists a faithful, normal and semi-finite (fns) operator valued weight if and only if there exist fns weights on and on satisfying . In fact, can be chosen such that ; is then uniquely determined by this condition. We present a proof of the above which does not use any structure theory.
