Lemma 31.4.7. Let $X$ be a locally Noetherian scheme. Let $\mathcal{F}$ be a coherent $\mathcal{O}_ X$-module without embedded associated points. Set

\[ \mathcal{I} = \mathop{\mathrm{Ker}}(\mathcal{O}_ X \longrightarrow \mathop{\mathcal{H}\! \mathit{om}}\nolimits _{\mathcal{O}_ X}(\mathcal{F}, \mathcal{F})). \]

This is a coherent sheaf of ideals which defines a closed subscheme $Z \subset X$ without embedded points. Moreover there exists a coherent sheaf $\mathcal{G}$ on $Z$ such that (a) $\mathcal{F} = (Z \to X)_*\mathcal{G}$, (b) $\mathcal{G}$ has no associated embedded points, and (c) $\text{Supp}(\mathcal{G}) = Z$ (as sets).

Proof. Some of the statements we have seen in the proof of Cohomology of Schemes, Lemma 30.9.7. The others follow from Algebra, Lemma 10.67.4. $\square$
