Definition 66.48.3. Let $S$ be a scheme. Let $f : Y \to X$ be a quasi-compact and quasi-separated morphism of algebraic spaces over $S$. Let $\mathcal{O}'$ be the integral closure of $\mathcal{O}_ X$ in $f_*\mathcal{O}_ Y$. The *normalization of $X$ in $Y$* is the morphism of algebraic spaces

over $S$. It comes equipped with a natural factorization

of the initial morphism $f$.
