Definition 17.10.1. Let $(X, \mathcal{O}_ X)$ be a ringed space. Let $\mathcal{F}$ be a sheaf of $\mathcal{O}_ X$-modules. We say that $\mathcal{F}$ is a *quasi-coherent sheaf of $\mathcal{O}_ X$-modules* if for every point $x \in X$ there exists an open neighbourhood $x\in U \subset X$ such that $\mathcal{F}|_ U$ is isomorphic to the cokernel of a map

The category of quasi-coherent $\mathcal{O}_ X$-modules is denoted $\mathit{QCoh}(\mathcal{O}_ X)$.
