Lemma 65.48.11. Let $S$ be a scheme. Let $f : X \to Y$ be a morphism of algebraic spaces over $S$. Assume that

$Y$ is Nagata,

$f$ is quasi-separated of finite type,

$X$ is reduced.

Then the normalization $\nu : X' \to X$ of $X$ in $Y$ is finite.

Lemma 65.48.11. Let $S$ be a scheme. Let $f : X \to Y$ be a morphism of algebraic spaces over $S$. Assume that

Then the normalization $\nu : X' \to X$ of $X$ in $Y$ is finite.

**Proof.**
The question is étale local on $Y$, see Lemma 65.48.4. Thus we may assume $Y = \mathop{\mathrm{Spec}}(R)$ is affine. Then $R$ is a Noetherian Nagata ring and we have to show that the integral closure of $R$ in $\Gamma (X, \mathcal{O}_ X)$ is finite over $R$. Since $f$ is quasi-compact we see that $X$ is quasi-compact. Choose an affine scheme $U$ and a surjective étale morphism $U \to X$ (Properties of Spaces, Lemma 64.6.3). Then $\Gamma (X, \mathcal{O}_ X) \subset \Gamma (U, \mathcal{O}_ X)$. Since $R$ is Noetherian it suffices to show that the integral closure of $R$ in $\Gamma (U, \mathcal{O}_ U)$ is finite over $R$. As $U \to Y$ is of finite type this follows from Morphisms, Lemma 29.51.15.
