Definition 100.28.1. Let $f : \mathcal{X} \to \mathcal{Y}$ be a morphism of algebraic stacks. We say $\mathcal{X}$ is a *gerbe over* $\mathcal{Y}$ if $\mathcal{X}$ is a gerbe over $\mathcal{Y}$ as stacks in groupoids over $(\mathit{Sch}/S)_{fppf}$, see Stacks, Definition 8.11.4. We say an algebraic stack $\mathcal{X}$ is a *gerbe* if there exists a morphism $\mathcal{X} \to X$ where $X$ is an algebraic space which turns $\mathcal{X}$ into a gerbe over $X$.
