Lemma 115.21.4. In Quot, Situation 99.5.1 assume that $S$ is a locally Noetherian scheme and $S = B$. Let $\mathcal{X} = \textit{Coh}_{X/B}$. Then we have openness of versality for $\mathcal{X}$ (see Artin's Axioms, Definition 98.13.1).

**Proof (sketch).**
Let $U \to S$ be of finite type morphism of schemes, $x$ an object of $\mathcal{X}$ over $U$ and $u_0 \in U$ a finite type point such that $x$ is versal at $u_0$. After shrinking $U$ we may assume that $u_0$ is a closed point (Morphisms, Lemma 29.16.1) and $U = \mathop{\mathrm{Spec}}(A)$ with $U \to S$ mapping into an affine open $\mathop{\mathrm{Spec}}(\Lambda )$ of $S$. We will use Artin's Axioms, Lemma 98.24.4 to prove the lemma. Let $\mathcal{F}$ be the coherent module on $X_ A = \mathop{\mathrm{Spec}}(A) \times _ S X$ flat over $A$ corresponding to the given object $x$.

Choose $E(\mathcal{F})$ and $e_\mathcal {F}$ as in Remark 115.21.1. The description of the cohomology sheaves of $E(\mathcal{F})$ shows that

for any $A$-module $M$. Using this and using Deformation Theory, Lemma 91.11.7 we have an isomorphism of functors

By Lemma 115.21.3 given any surjection $A' \to A$ of $\Lambda $-algebras with square zero kernel $I$ we have an obstruction class

Apply Derived Categories of Spaces, Lemma 75.23.3 to the computation of the Ext groups $\mathop{\mathrm{Ext}}\nolimits ^ i_{X_ A}(E(\mathcal{F}), \mathcal{F} \otimes _ A M)$ for $i \leq m$ with $m = 2$. We omit the verification that $E(\mathcal{F})$ is in $D^-_{\textit{Coh}}$; hint: use Cotangent, Lemma 92.5.4. We find a perfect object $K \in D(A)$ and functorial isomorphisms

for $i \leq m$ compatible with boundary maps. This object $K$, together with the displayed identifications above gives us a datum as in Artin's Axioms, Situation 98.24.2. Finally, condition (iv) of Artin's Axioms, Lemma 98.24.3 holds by a variant of Deformation Theory, Lemma 91.12.5 whose formulation and proof we omit. Thus Artin's Axioms, Lemma 98.24.4 applies and the lemma is proved. $\square$
