Definition 7.11.1. Let $\mathcal{C}$ be a site, and let $\varphi : \mathcal{F} \to \mathcal{G}$ be a map of sheaves of sets.

We say that $\varphi $ is

*injective*if for every object $U$ of $\mathcal{C}$ the map $\varphi : \mathcal{F}(U) \to \mathcal{G}(U)$ is injective.We say that $\varphi $ is

*surjective*if for every object $U$ of $\mathcal{C}$ and every section $s\in \mathcal{G}(U)$ there exists a covering $\{ U_ i \to U\} $ such that for all $i$ the restriction $s|_{U_ i}$ is in the image of $\varphi : \mathcal{F}(U_ i) \to \mathcal{G}(U_ i)$.
