Definition 56.14.4. Notation $U \to S$, $G$, $R$ as in Lemma 56.14.3. If the action of $G$ on $U$ satisfies $(*)$ we say $G$

acts freelyon the scheme $U$. In this case the algebraic space $U/R$ is denoted $U/G$ and is called thequotient of $U$ by $G$.

The code snippet corresponding to this tag is a part of the file `spaces.tex` and is located in lines 2283–2289 (see updates for more information).
