# [Tex/LaTex] Symbol for a “twisted product”

math-modesymbols

I am trying to make a symbol for a "twisted product". I've tried stackrel:

$A \mathbin{\stackrel{\sim}{\times}} B$


but the sim floats too high above the times, causing unpleasant line spacing. I've also tried widetilde

$A \mathbin{\widetilde{\times}} B$


but it has the same problem. Ideally I'd like the tilde to have the same width as the times and for the spacing between the two to be pretty tight.

\newcommand\simtimes{\mathbin{%

Adjust the 0.9ex to your needs.
