Lemma 28.5.2. Let $X$ be a scheme. The following are equivalent:

1. The scheme $X$ is locally Noetherian.

2. For every affine open $U \subset X$ the ring $\mathcal{O}_ X(U)$ is Noetherian.

3. There exists an affine open covering $X = \bigcup U_ i$ such that each $\mathcal{O}_ X(U_ i)$ is Noetherian.

4. There exists an open covering $X = \bigcup X_ j$ such that each open subscheme $X_ j$ is locally Noetherian.

Moreover, if $X$ is locally Noetherian then every open subscheme is locally Noetherian.

Proof. To show this it suffices to show that being Noetherian is a local property of rings, see Lemma 28.4.3. Any localization of a Noetherian ring is Noetherian, see Algebra, Lemma 10.31.1. By Algebra, Lemma 10.23.2 we see the second property to Definition 28.4.1. $\square$
