Lemma 73.6.5. Let $S$ be a scheme. Let $f : X \to Y$ be an affine morphism of algebraic spaces over $S$. For $E$ in $D_\mathit{QCoh}(\mathcal{O}_ Y)$ we have $Rf_* Lf^* E = E \otimes ^\mathbf {L}_{\mathcal{O}_ Y} f_*\mathcal{O}_ X$.

**Proof.**
Since $f$ is affine the map $f_*\mathcal{O}_ X \to Rf_*\mathcal{O}_ X$ is an isomorphism (Cohomology of Spaces, Lemma 67.8.2). There is a canonical map $E \otimes ^\mathbf {L} f_*\mathcal{O}_ X = E \otimes ^\mathbf {L} Rf_*\mathcal{O}_ X \to Rf_* Lf^* E$ adjoint to the map

coming from $1 : Lf^*E \to Lf^*E$ and the canonical map $Lf^*Rf_*\mathcal{O}_ X \to \mathcal{O}_ X$. To check the map so constructed is an isomorphism we may work locally on $Y$. Hence we may assume $Y$ and therefore $X$ is affine. In this case the problem reduces to the case of schemes (Derived Categories of Schemes, Lemma 36.5.3) via Lemma 73.4.2 and Remark 73.6.3. $\square$
