Summary: We establish the equivalence of three approaches to the theory of finite-dimensional quantum groupoids. These are the generalized Kac algebras of T. Yamanouchi [J. Algebra 163, 9-50 (1994; Zbl 0830.46047)], the weak Kac algebras, i.e., the weak \(C^*\)-Hopf algebras introduced by G. Böhm, F. Nill and K. Szlachányi [J. Algebra 221, 385-438 (1999; Zbl 0949.16037)] which have an involutive antipode, and the Kac bimodules. The latter are an algebraic version of the Hopf bimodules of J.-M. Vallin [J. Oper. Theory 35, 39-65 (1996; Zbl 0849.22002)]. We also study the structure and construct examples of finite-dimensional quantum groupoids.
