Lemma 7.21.5. Let $\mathcal{C}$ and $\mathcal{D}$ be sites. Let $u : \mathcal{C} \to \mathcal{D}$ be a functor. Assume that

  1. $u$ is cocontinuous, and

  2. $u$ is continuous.

Let $g : \mathop{\mathit{Sh}}\nolimits (\mathcal{C}) \to \mathop{\mathit{Sh}}\nolimits (\mathcal{D})$ be the associated morphism of topoi. Then

  1. sheafification in the formula $g^{-1} = (u^ p\ )^\# $ is unnecessary, in other words $g^{-1}(\mathcal{G})(U) = \mathcal{G}(u(U))$,

  2. $g^{-1}$ has a left adjoint $g_{!} = (u_ p\ )^\# $, and

  3. $g^{-1}$ commutes with arbitrary limits and colimits.

Proof. By Lemma 7.13.2 for any sheaf $\mathcal{G}$ on $\mathcal{D}$ the presheaf $u^ p\mathcal{G}$ is a sheaf on $\mathcal{C}$. And then we see the adjointness by the following string of equalities

\begin{eqnarray*} \mathop{Mor}\nolimits _{\mathop{\mathit{Sh}}\nolimits (\mathcal{C})}(\mathcal{F}, g^{-1}\mathcal{G}) & = & \mathop{Mor}\nolimits _{\textit{PSh}(\mathcal{C})}(\mathcal{F}, u^ p\mathcal{G}) \\ & = & \mathop{Mor}\nolimits _{\textit{PSh}(\mathcal{D})}(u_ p\mathcal{F}, \mathcal{G}) \\ & = & \mathop{Mor}\nolimits _{\mathop{\mathit{Sh}}\nolimits (\mathcal{D})}(g_{!}\mathcal{F}, \mathcal{G}) \end{eqnarray*}

The statement on limits and colimits follows from the discussion in Categories, Section 4.24. $\square$
