# Symbol for a “twisted product”?

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 to the two to be pretty tight.

Have a look at “How to look up a math symbol?” for ideas how you can easily find a particular symbol. –  Matthew Leingang Mar 3 '11 at 18:20
I tried detexify and looking at the CTAN list. No joy. –  Sam Nead Mar 3 '11 at 18:57

\newcommand\simtimes{\mathbin{%

Adjust the 0.9ex to your needs.
