Chapter 28: Morphisms of Schemes > Section 28.27: Morphisms and dimensions of fibres

Lemma 28.27.1. Let $f : X \to S$ be a morphism of schemes. Let $x \in X$ and set $s = f(x)$. Assume $f$ is locally of finite type. Then $$ \dim_x(X_s) = \dim(\mathcal{O}_{X_s, x}) + \text{trdeg}_{\kappa(s)}(\kappa(x)). $$

Proof.This immediately reduces to the case $S = s$, and $X$ affine. In this case the result follows from Algebra, Lemma 10.115.3. $\square$

\label{lemma-dimension-fibre-at-a-point}
Let $f : X \to S$ be a morphism of schemes.
Let $x \in X$ and set $s = f(x)$.
Assume $f$ is locally of finite type.
Then
$$
\dim_x(X_s) =
\dim(\mathcal{O}_{X_s, x}) + \text{trdeg}_{\kappa(s)}(\kappa(x)).
$$
\end{lemma}
\begin{proof}
This immediately reduces to the case $S = s$, and $X$ affine.
In this case the result follows from
Algebra, Lemma \ref{algebra-lemma-dimension-at-a-point-finite-type-field}.
