Bsheaf
In mathematics, the gluing axiom is introduced to define what a sheaf (mathematics), sheaf \mathcal F on a topological space X must satisfy, given that it is a presheaf, which is by definition a contravariant functor ::(X) \rightarrow C to a category C which initially one takes to be the category of sets. Here (X) is the partial order of open sets of X ordered by inclusion maps; and considered as a category in the standard way, with a unique morphism :U \rightarrow V if U is a subset of V, and none otherwise. As phrased in the Sheaf (mathematics), sheaf article, there is a certain axiom that F must satisfy, for any open cover of an open set of X. For example, given open sets U and V with union (set theory), union X and intersection (set theory), intersection W, the required condition is that :(X) is the subset of (U) \times (V) With equal image in (W) In less formal language, a Section (category theory), section s of F over X is equally well given by a pair of sections :(s', s ...

Category Of Commutative Rings
In mathematics, the category of rings, denoted by Ring, is the category (mathematics), category whose objects are ring (mathematics), rings (with identity) and whose morphisms are ring homomorphisms (that preserve the identity). Like many categories in mathematics, the category of rings is Category (mathematics)#Small and large categories, large, meaning that the class (set theory), class of all rings is proper class, proper. As a concrete category The category Ring is a concrete category meaning that the objects are set (mathematics), sets with additional structure (addition and multiplication) and the morphisms are function (mathematics), functions that preserve this structure. There is a natural forgetful functor :''U'' : Ring → Set for the category of rings to the category of sets which sends each ring to its underlying set (thus "forgetting" the operations of addition and multiplication). This functor has a left adjoint :''F'' : Set → Ring which assigns to each set ''X'' ... [...More Info...] [...Related Items...]

Locally Ringed Space
In mathematics, a ringed space is a family of (Commutative ring, commutative) ring (mathematics), rings parametrized by open subsets of a topological space together with ring homomorphisms that play roles of Restriction (mathematics), restrictions. Precisely, it is a topological space equipped with a sheaf (mathematics), sheaf of rings called a structure sheaf. It is an abstraction of the concept of the rings of Continuous_function#Continuous_functions_between_topological_spaces, continuous (scalarvalued) functions on open subsets. Among ringed spaces, especially important and prominent is a locally ringed space: a ringed space in which the analogy between the stalk at a point and the ring of germ of a function, germs of functions at a point is valid. Ringed spaces appear in mathematical analysis, analysis as well as complex algebraic geometry and the scheme theory of algebraic geometry. Note: In the definition of a ringed space, most expositions tend to restrict the rings to be c ... [...More Info...] [...Related Items...]

Quasicoherent Sheaf
In mathematics, especially in algebraic geometry and the theory of complex manifolds, coherent sheaves are a class of Sheaf (mathematics), sheaves closely linked to the geometric properties of the underlying space. The definition of coherent sheaves is made with reference to a sheaf of rings that codifies this geometric information. Coherent sheaves can be seen as a generalization of vector bundles. Unlike vector bundles, they form an abelian category, and so they are closed under operations such as taking kernel (category theory), kernels, image (mathematics), images, and cokernels. The quasicoherent sheaves are a generalization of coherent sheaves and include the locally free sheaves of infinite rank. Coherent sheaf cohomology is a powerful technique, in particular for studying the sections of a given coherent sheaf. Definitions A quasicoherent sheaf on a ringed space (X, \mathcal O_X) is a sheaf \mathcal F of \mathcal O_Xsheaf of modules, modules which has a local presenta ...

Localization Of A Module
In commutative algebra and algebraic geometry, localization is a formal way to introduce the "denominators" to a given ring (mathematics), ring or module (mathematics), module. That is, it introduces a new ring/module out of an existing ring/module ''R'', so that it consists of algebraic fraction, fractions \frac, such that the denominator ''s'' belongs to a given subset ''S'' of ''R''. If ''S'' is the set of the nonzero elements of an integral domain, then the localization is the field of fractions: this case generalizes the construction of the ring \Q of rational numbers from the ring \Z of integers. The technique has become fundamental, particularly in algebraic geometry, as it provides a natural link to sheaf (mathematics), sheaf theory. In fact, the term ''localization'' originated in algebraic geometry: if ''R'' is a ring of function (mathematics), functions defined on some geometric object (algebraic variety) ''V'', and one wants to study this variety "locally" near a point ...
