A more generalized form of factorization, called $\tau$-factorization, was introduced in 2011 by D.D. Anderson and J. Reinkoester. In $\tau$-factorization, all factors of a factorization must belong to the same equivalence class modulo a fixed ideal. We discuss $\tau$-factorization in small settings and $\tau$-elasticity in a more general setting.
