Definition 66.30.1. Let $S$ be a scheme. Let $f : X \to Y$ be a morphism of algebraic spaces over $S$.

1. We say $f$ is flat if the equivalent conditions of Lemma 66.22.1 with $\mathcal{P} =$“flat”.

2. Let $x \in |X|$. We say $f$ is flat at $x$ if the equivalent conditions of Lemma 66.22.5 hold with $\mathcal{Q} =$“induced map local rings is flat”.

Note that the second part makes sense by Descent, Lemma 35.33.4.
