Lemma 15.94.1. In Situation 15.91.15. If $A$ is Noetherian, then the pro-objects $\{ K_ n^\bullet \} $ and $\{ A/(f_1^ n, \ldots , f_ r^ n)\} $ of $D(A)$ are isomorphic^{1}.

**Proof.**
We have an inverse system of distinguished triangles

See Derived Categories, Remark 13.12.4. By Derived Categories, Lemma 13.41.4 it suffices to show that the inverse system $\tau _{\leq -1}K_ n^\bullet $ is pro-zero. Recall that $K_ n^\bullet $ has nonzero terms only in degrees $i$ with $-r \leq i \leq 0$. Thus by Derived Categories, Lemma 13.41.3 it suffices to show that $H^ p(K_ n^\bullet )$ is pro-zero for $p \leq -1$. In other words, for every $n \in \mathbf{N}$ we have to show there exists an $m \geq n$ such that $H^ p(K_ m^\bullet ) \to H^ p(K_ n^\bullet )$ is zero. Since $A$ is Noetherian, we see that

is a finite $A$-module. Moreover, the map $K_ m^ p \to K_ n^ p$ is given by a diagonal matrix whose entries are in the ideal $(f_1^{m - n}, \ldots , f_ r^{m - n})$ as $p < 0$. Note that $H^ p(K_ n^\bullet )$ is annihilated by $J = (f_1^ n, \ldots , f_ r^ n)$, see Lemma 15.28.6. Now $(f_1^{m - n}, \ldots , f_ r^{m - n}) \subset J^ t$ for $m - n \geq tn$. Thus by Algebra, Lemma 10.51.2 (Artin-Rees) applied to the ideal $J$ and the module $M = K_ n^ p$ with submodule $N = \mathop{\mathrm{Ker}}(K_ n^ p \to K_ n^{p + 1})$ for $m$ large enough the image of $K_ m^ p \to K_ n^ p$ intersected with $\mathop{\mathrm{Ker}}(K_ n^ p \to K_ n^{p + 1})$ is contained in $J \mathop{\mathrm{Ker}}(K_ n^ p \to K_ n^{p + 1})$. For such $m$ we get the zero map. $\square$
