Chapter 7: Sites and Sheaves > Section 7.24: Localization

Remark 7.24.10. Localization and presheaves. Let $\mathcal{C}$ be a category. Let $U$ be an object of $\mathcal{C}$. Strictly speaking the functors $j_U^{-1}$, $j_{U*}$ and $j_{U!}$ have not been defined for presheaves. But of course, we can think of a presheaf as a sheaf for the chaotic topology on $\mathcal{C}$ (see Example 7.6.6). Hence we also obtain a functor $$ j_U^{-1} : \textit{PSh}(\mathcal{C}) \longrightarrow \textit{PSh}(\mathcal{C}/U) $$ and functors $$ j_{U*}, j_{U!} : \textit{PSh}(\mathcal{C}/U) \longrightarrow \textit{PSh}(\mathcal{C}) $$ which are right, left adjoint to $j_U^{-1}$. By Lemma 7.24.2 we see that $j_{U!}\mathcal{G}$ is the presheaf $$ V \longmapsto \coprod\nolimits_{\varphi \in \mathop{\rm Mor}\nolimits_\mathcal{C}(V, U)} \mathcal{G}(V \xrightarrow{\varphi} U) $$ In addition the functor $j_{U!}$ commutes with fibre products and equalizers.

Localization and presheaves. Let $\mathcal{C}$ be a category.
Let $U$ be an object of $\mathcal{C}$. Strictly speaking the functors
$j_U^{-1}$, $j_{U*}$ and $j_{U!}$ have not been defined for presheaves.
But of course, we can think of a presheaf as a sheaf for the
chaotic topology on $\mathcal{C}$ (see Example \ref{example-indiscrete}).
Hence we also obtain a functor
$$
j_U^{-1} :
\textit{PSh}(\mathcal{C})
\longrightarrow
\textit{PSh}(\mathcal{C}/U)
$$
and functors
$$
j_{U*}, j_{U!} :
\textit{PSh}(\mathcal{C}/U)
\longrightarrow
\textit{PSh}(\mathcal{C})
$$
which are right, left adjoint to $j_U^{-1}$. By
Lemma \ref{lemma-describe-j-shriek}
we see that $j_{U!}\mathcal{G}$ is the presheaf
$$
V \longmapsto
\coprod\nolimits_{\varphi \in \Mor_\mathcal{C}(V, U)}
\mathcal{G}(V \xrightarrow{\varphi} U)
$$
In addition the functor $j_{U!}$ commutes with fibre products and
equalizers.
