Lemma 98.5.7. In Situation 98.5.1. Let

\[ \xymatrix{ Z \ar[r] \ar[d] & Z' \ar[d] \\ Y \ar[r] & Y' } \]

be a pushout in the category of schemes over $S$ where $Z \to Z'$ is a thickening and $Z \to Y$ is affine, see More on Morphisms, Lemma 37.14.3. Then the functor on fibre categories

\[ \mathcal{C}\! \mathit{oh}_{X/B, Y'} \longrightarrow \mathcal{C}\! \mathit{oh}_{X/B, Y} \times _{\mathcal{C}\! \mathit{oh}_{X/B, Z}} \mathcal{C}\! \mathit{oh}_{X/B, Z'} \]

is an equivalence.

Proof. Observe that the corresponding map

\[ B(Y') \longrightarrow B(Y) \times _{B(Z)} B(Z') \]

is a bijection, see Pushouts of Spaces, Lemma 80.6.1. Thus using the commutative diagram

\[ \xymatrix{ \mathcal{C}\! \mathit{oh}_{X/B, Y'} \ar[r] \ar[d] & \mathcal{C}\! \mathit{oh}_{X/B, Y} \times _{\mathcal{C}\! \mathit{oh}_{X/B, Z}} \mathcal{C}\! \mathit{oh}_{X/B, Z'} \ar[d] \\ B(Y') \ar[r] & B(Y) \times _{B(Z)} B(Z') } \]

we see that we may assume that $Y'$ is a scheme over $B'$. By Remark 98.5.5 we may replace $B$ by $Y'$ and $X$ by $X \times _ B Y'$. Thus we may assume $B = Y'$. In this case the statement follows from Pushouts of Spaces, Lemma 80.6.6. $\square$
