Chapter 6: Sheaves on Spaces > Section 6.31: Open immersions and (pre)sheaves

Remark 6.31.13. Let $j : U \to X$ be an open immersion of topological spaces as above. Let $x \in X$, $x \not \in U$. Let $\mathcal{F}$ be a sheaf of sets on $U$. Then $j_!\mathcal{F}_x = \emptyset$ by Lemma 6.31.4. Hence $j_!$ does not transform a final object of $\mathop{\textit{Sh}}\nolimits(U)$ into a final object of $\mathop{\textit{Sh}}\nolimits(X)$ unless $U = X$. According to our conventions in Categories, Section 4.23 this means that the functor $j_!$ is not left exact as a functor between the categories of sheaves of sets. It will be shown later that $j_!$ on abelian sheaves is exact, see Modules, Lemma 17.3.4.

The code snippet corresponding to this tag is a part of the file `sheaves.tex` and is located in lines 4831–4844 (see updates for more information).

Hence $j_!$ does not transform a final object of $\Sh(U)$
