Definition 13.9.9. Let $\mathcal{A}$ be an additive category. A *termwise split exact sequence of complexes of $\mathcal{A}$* is a complex of complexes

together with given direct sum decompositions $B^ n = A^ n \oplus C^ n$ compatible with $\alpha ^ n$ and $\beta ^ n$. We often write $s^ n : C^ n \to B^ n$ and $\pi ^ n : B^ n \to A^ n$ for the maps induced by the direct sum decompositions. According to Homology, Lemma 12.14.10 we get an associated morphism of complexes

which in degree $n$ is the map $\pi ^{n + 1} \circ d_ B^ n \circ s^ n$. In other words $(A^\bullet , B^\bullet , C^\bullet , \alpha , \beta , \delta )$ forms a triangle

This will be the *triangle associated to the termwise split sequence of complexes*.
