Example 17.12.3. Suppose that $X$ is a point. In this case the definition above gives a notion for modules over rings. What does the definition of coherent mean? It is closely related to the notion of Noetherian, but it is not the same: Namely, the ring $R = \mathbf{C}[x_1, x_2, x_3, \ldots ]$ is coherent as a module over itself but not Noetherian as a module over itself. See Algebra, Section 10.89 for more discussion.
