Definition 13.3.1. Let $\mathcal{D}$ be an additive category. Let $[n] : \mathcal{D} \to \mathcal{D}$, $E \mapsto E[n]$ be a collection of additive functors indexed by $n \in \mathbf{Z}$ such that $[n] \circ [m] = [n + m]$ and $[0] = \text{id}$ (equality as functors). In this situation we define a *triangle* to be a sextuple $(X, Y, Z, f, g, h)$ where $X, Y, Z \in \mathop{\mathrm{Ob}}\nolimits (\mathcal{D})$ and $f : X \to Y$, $g : Y \to Z$ and $h : Z \to X[1]$ are morphisms of $\mathcal{D}$. A *morphism of triangles* $(X, Y, Z, f, g, h) \to (X', Y', Z', f', g', h')$ is given by morphisms $a : X \to X'$, $b : Y \to Y'$ and $c : Z \to Z'$ of $\mathcal{D}$ such that $b \circ f = f' \circ a$, $c \circ g = g' \circ b$ and $a[1] \circ h = h' \circ c$.
