Abstract: A result of Haagerup, generalizing a theorem of Takesaki, states the following: If ${\mathcal{N}}\subset {\mathcal{M}}$ are von Neumann algebras, then there exists a faithful, normal and semi-finite (fns) operator valued weight $T \colon {\mathcal{M}}_{+} \rightarrow \widehat {{\mathcal{N}}_{+}}$ if and only if there exist fns weights $\tilde \varphi $ on ${\mathcal{M}}$ and $\varphi $ on ${\mathcal{N}}$ satisfying $\sigma ^{\varphi }_{t}(x) = \sigma ^{\tilde \varphi }_{t}(x) \, \forall x \in {\mathcal{N}}\ , t \in \mathbb{R}$. In fact, $T$ can be chosen such that $\tilde \varphi = \varphi \circ T$; $T$ is then uniquely determined by this condition. We present a proof of the above which does not use any structure theory.
