## Tag 012Z

Definition 12.22.3. Let $\mathcal{A}$ be an additive category. Let $A^{\bullet, \bullet}$ be a double complex. The associated simple complex $sA^\bullet$, also sometimes called the associated total complex is given by $$sA^n = \bigoplus\nolimits_{n = p + q} A^{p, q}$$ (if it exists) with differential $$d_{sA}^n = \sum\nolimits_{n = p + q} (d_1^{p, q} + (-1)^p d_2^{p, q})$$ Alternatively, we sometimes write $\text{Tot}(A^{\bullet, \bullet})$ to denote this complex.
