Lemma 15.90.2. Let $A$ be a ring. Let $K \in D(A)$. The set $I$ of $f \in A$ such that $T(K, f) = 0$ is a radical ideal of $A$.

**Proof.**
We will use the results of Lemma 15.90.1 without further mention. If $f \in I$, and $g \in A$, then $A_{gf}$ is an $A_ f$-module hence $\mathop{\mathrm{Ext}}\nolimits ^ n_ A(A_{gf}, K) = 0$ for all $n$, hence $gf \in I$. Suppose $f, g \in I$. Then there is a short exact sequence

because $f, g$ generate the unit ideal in $A_{f + g}$. This follows from Algebra, Lemma 10.24.2 and the easy fact that the last arrow is surjective. From the long exact sequence of $\mathop{\mathrm{Ext}}\nolimits $ and the vanishing of $\mathop{\mathrm{Ext}}\nolimits ^ n_ A(A_{f(f + g)}, K)$, $\mathop{\mathrm{Ext}}\nolimits ^ n_ A(A_{g(f + g)}, K)$, and $\mathop{\mathrm{Ext}}\nolimits ^ n_ A(A_{gf(f + g)}, K)$ for all $n$ we deduce the vanishing of $\mathop{\mathrm{Ext}}\nolimits ^ n_ A(A_{f + g}, K)$ for all $n$. Finally, if $f^ n \in I$ for some $n > 0$, then $f \in I$ because $T(K, f) = T(K, f^ n)$ or because $A_ f \cong A_{f^ n}$. $\square$
