Lemma 31.6.3. Let $f : X \to S$ be a finite morphism of schemes. Let $\mathcal{F}$ be a quasi-coherent $\mathcal{O}_ X$-module. Then $\text{WeakAss}(f_*\mathcal{F}) = f(\text{WeakAss}(\mathcal{F}))$.

**Proof.**
We may assume $X$ and $S$ affine, so $X \to S$ comes from a finite ring map $A \to B$. Write $\mathcal{F} = \widetilde M$ for some $B$-module $M$. By Lemma 31.5.2 the weakly associated points of $\mathcal{F}$ correspond exactly to the weakly associated primes of $M$. Similarly, the weakly associated points of $f_*\mathcal{F}$ correspond exactly to the weakly associated primes of $M$ as an $A$-module. Hence the lemma follows from Algebra, Lemma 10.66.13.
