Definition 17.28.1. Let $X$ be a topological space. Let $\varphi : \mathcal{O}_1 \to \mathcal{O}_2$ be a homomorphism of sheaves of rings. Let $\mathcal{F}$ be an $\mathcal{O}_2$-module. An *$\mathcal{O}_1$-derivation* or more precisely a *$\varphi $-derivation* into $\mathcal{F}$ is a map $D : \mathcal{O}_2 \to \mathcal{F}$ which is additive, annihilates the image of $\mathcal{O}_1 \to \mathcal{O}_2$, and satisfies the *Leibniz rule*

for all $a, b$ local sections of $\mathcal{O}_2$ (wherever they are both defined). We denote $\text{Der}_{\mathcal{O}_1}(\mathcal{O}_2, \mathcal{F})$ the set of $\varphi $-derivations into $\mathcal{F}$.
