Lemma 31.25.2. Let $X$ be a scheme. Assume $X$ is reduced and any quasi-compact open $U \subset X$ has a finite number of irreducible components. Then the normalization morphism $\nu : X^\nu \to X$ is the morphism

$\underline{\mathop{\mathrm{Spec}}}_ X(\mathcal{O}') \longrightarrow X$

where $\mathcal{O}' \subset \mathcal{K}_ X$ is the integral closure of $\mathcal{O}_ X$ in the sheaf of meromorphic functions.

Proof. Compare the definition of the normalization morphism $\nu : X^\nu \to X$ (see Morphisms, Definition 29.54.1) with the description of $\mathcal{K}_ X$ in Lemma 31.25.1 above. $\square$
