Lemma 6.21.1. Let $f : X \to Y$ be a continuous map. Let $\mathcal{F}$ be a sheaf of sets on $X$. Then $f_*\mathcal{F}$ is a sheaf on $Y$.

Proof. This immediately follows from the fact that if $V = \bigcup V_ j$ is an open covering in $Y$, then $f^{-1}(V) = \bigcup f^{-1}(V_ j)$ is an open covering in $X$. $\square$
