Lemma 10.134.13. Let $A \to B$ be a ring map. Let $S \subset B$ be a multiplicative subset. The canonical map $\mathop{N\! L}\nolimits _{B/A} \otimes _ B S^{-1}B \to \mathop{N\! L}\nolimits _{S^{-1}B/A}$ is a quasi-isomorphism.

Proof. We have $S^{-1}B = \mathop{\mathrm{colim}}\nolimits _{g \in S} B_ g$ where we think of $S$ as a directed set (ordering by divisibility), see Lemma 10.9.9. By Lemma 10.134.12 each of the maps $\mathop{N\! L}\nolimits _{B/A} \otimes _ B B_ g \to \mathop{N\! L}\nolimits _{B_ g/A}$ are quasi-isomorphisms. The lemma follows from Lemma 10.134.9. $\square$

(Why) Isn't the canonical map in the lemma a homotopy equivalence?

Comment #2921 by on

It is indeed a homotopy equivalence. We can deduce this from a general result on two term complexes of the form $\ldots \to 0 \to L^{-1} \to L^0 \to 0 \to \ldots$ with $L^0$ projective, see Lemma 15.84.4. It would be a bit annoying (I think) to prove it here in the commutative algebra chapter and having the quasi-isomorphism statement suffices for applications, I think and hope.
