Definition 38.21.1. Let $X \to S$ be a morphism of schemes. Let $\mathcal{F}$ be a quasi-coherent $\mathcal{O}_ X$-module. We say that the universal flattening of $\mathcal{F}$ exists if the functor $F_{flat}$ defined in Situation 38.20.13 is representable by a scheme $S'$ over $S$. We say that the universal flattening of $X$ exists if the universal flattening of $\mathcal{O}_ X$ exists.
