Definition 59.16.5. Let $A \to B$ be a ring map and $N$ a $B$-module. A descent datum for $N$ with respect to $A \to B$ is an isomorphism $\varphi : N \otimes _ A B \cong B \otimes _ A N$ of $B \otimes _ A B$-modules such that the diagram of $B \otimes _ A B \otimes _ A B$-modules

\[ \xymatrix{ {N \otimes _ A B \otimes _ A B} \ar[dr]_{\varphi _{02}} \ar[rr]^{\varphi _{01}} & & {B \otimes _ A N \otimes _ A B} \ar[dl]^{\varphi _{12}} \\ & {B \otimes _ A B \otimes _ A N} } \]

commutes where $\varphi _{01} = \varphi \otimes \text{id}_ B$ and similarly for $\varphi _{12}$ and $\varphi _{02}$.

Minor remark: The are of course different from the in definition 49.16.1; here you mean presumably , and then are you sure the arrows are labeled correctly in the commutative diagram? I would have guessed it would be .
