Chapter 34: Descent > Section 34.4: Descent for universally injective morphisms

Definition 34.4.15. The functor $f^*: \text{Mod}_R \to DD_{S/R}$ is called

base extension along $f$. We say that $f$ is adescent morphism for modulesif $f^*$ is fully faithful. We say that $f$ is aneffective descent morphism for modulesif $f^*$ is an equivalence of categories.

The code snippet corresponding to this tag is a part of the file `descent.tex` and is located in lines 1092–1099 (see updates for more information).
