Lemma 16.7.3. Let $R$ be a Noetherian ring. Let $\Lambda$ be an $R$-algebra. Let $\pi \in R$ and assume that $\text{Ann}_ R(\pi ) = \text{Ann}_ R(\pi ^2)$ and $\text{Ann}_\Lambda (\pi ) = \text{Ann}_\Lambda (\pi ^2)$. Let $A \to \Lambda$ be an $R$-algebra map with $A$ of finite presentation and assume $\pi$ is strictly standard in $A$ over $R$. Let

$A/\pi ^8A \to \bar C \to \Lambda /\pi ^8\Lambda$

be a factorization with $\bar C$ of finite presentation. Then we can find a factorization $A \to B \to \Lambda$ with $B$ of finite presentation such that $R_\pi \to B_\pi$ is smooth and such that

$H_{\bar C/(R/\pi ^8 R)} \cdot \Lambda /\pi ^8\Lambda \subset \sqrt{H_{B/R} \Lambda } \bmod \pi ^8\Lambda .$

Proof. Apply Lemma 16.6.1 to get $R \to D \to \Lambda$ with a factorization $\bar C/\pi ^4\bar C \to D/\pi ^4 D \to \Lambda /\pi ^4\Lambda$ such that $R \to D$ is smooth at any prime not containing $\pi$ and at any prime lying over a prime of $\bar C/\pi ^4\bar C$ where $R/\pi ^8 R \to \bar C$ is smooth. By Lemma 16.7.2 we can find a finitely presented $R$-algebra $B$ and factorizations $A \to B \to \Lambda$ and $D \to B \to \Lambda$ such that $H_{D/R}B \subset H_{B/R}$. We omit the verification that this is a solution to the problem posed by the lemma. $\square$
