Definition 7.14.1. Let $\mathcal{C}$ and $\mathcal{D}$ be sites. A morphism of sites $f : \mathcal{D} \to \mathcal{C}$ is given by a continuous functor $u : \mathcal{C} \to \mathcal{D}$ such that the functor $u_ s$ is exact.

Comment #7739 by Haohao Liu on

A possibly stupid question: as is a functor between the categories of sheaves of "sets", so in general is not an abelian category. Then what does " is exact" mean here? Maybe it means the restriction of to the sheaves of abelian groups is exact?

Put "exact definition" in the search bar (without the quotes) and look at the first definition. It does take some getting used to, but it is a very useful notion!
