Proposition 15.89.18. Let $R$ be a Noetherian ring. Let $f \in R$ be an element. Let $R^\wedge $ be the $f$-adic completion of $R$. Then the functor $M \mapsto (M^\wedge , M_ f, \text{can})$ defines an equivalence

**Proof.**
The ring map $R \to R^\wedge $ is flat by Algebra, Lemma 10.97.2. It is clear that $R/fR = R^\wedge /fR^\wedge $. By Algebra, Lemma 10.97.1 the completion of a finite $R$-module $M$ is equal to $M \otimes _ R R^\wedge $. Hence the displayed functor of the proposition is equal to the functor occurring in Theorem 15.89.17. In particular it is fully faithful. Let $(M_1, M_2, \psi )$ be an object of the right hand side. By Theorem 15.89.17 there exists an $R$-module $M$ such that $M_1 = M \otimes _ R R^\wedge $ and $M_2 = M_ f$. As $R \to R^\wedge \times R_ f$ is faithfully flat we conclude from Algebra, Lemma 10.23.2 that $M$ is finitely generated, i.e., $M \in \text{Mod}^{fg}_ R$. This proves the proposition.
