94.1 Introduction

This is a discussion of examples of stacks in algebraic geometry. Some of them are algebraic stacks, some are not. We will discuss which are algebraic stacks in a later chapter. This means that in this chapter we mainly worry about the descent conditions. See [Vis2] for example.

Some of the notation, conventions and terminology in this chapter is awkward and may seem backwards to the more experienced reader. This is intentional. Please see Quot, Section 98.2 for an explanation.
