Lemma 29.11.5. Let $S$ be a scheme. There is an anti-equivalence of categories

\[ \begin{matrix} \text{Schemes affine} \\ \text{over }S \end{matrix} \longleftrightarrow \begin{matrix} \text{quasi-coherent sheaves} \\ \text{of }\mathcal{O}_ S\text{-algebras} \end{matrix} \]

which associates to $f : X \to S$ the sheaf $f_*\mathcal{O}_ X$. Moreover, this equivalence is compatible with arbitrary base change.

Proof. The functor from right to left is given by $\underline{\mathop{\mathrm{Spec}}}_ S$. The two functors are mutually inverse by Lemma 29.11.3 and Constructions, Lemma 27.4.6 part (3). The final statement is Constructions, Lemma 27.4.6 part (2). $\square$

Minor style typo: in the statement perhaps one would want to enclose the name of the categories between curly braces to fit the style in 29.11.6.

2nd proof (maybe worth of mention?): The functor is fully faithful by remark (ii) of , and it is essentially surjective by 29.11.3.
