Lemma 78.17.1. Let $B \to S$ as in Section 78.3. Let $(U, R, s, t, c)$ be a groupoid in algebraic spaces over $B$. Let $g : U' \to U$ be a morphism of algebraic spaces. Consider the following diagram

where all the squares are fibre product squares. Then there is a canonical composition law $c' : R' \times _{s', U', t'} R' \to R'$ such that $(U', R', s', t', c')$ is a groupoid in algebraic spaces over $B$ and such that $U' \to U$, $R' \to R$ defines a morphism $(U', R', s', t', c') \to (U, R, s, t, c)$ of groupoids in algebraic spaces over $B$. Moreover, for any scheme $T$ over $B$ the functor of groupoids

is the restriction (see Groupoids, Section 39.18) of $(U(T), R(T), s, t, c)$ via the map $U'(T) \to U(T)$.
