Lemma 48.12.1. Let $Y$ be a quasi-compact and quasi-separated scheme. Let $f : X \to Y$ be a morphism of schemes which is proper, flat, and of finite presentation. Let $a$ be the right adjoint for $Rf_* : D_\mathit{QCoh}(\mathcal{O}_ X) \to D_\mathit{QCoh}(\mathcal{O}_ Y)$ of Lemma 48.3.1. Then $a$ commutes with direct sums.

Proof. Let $P$ be a perfect object of $D(\mathcal{O}_ X)$. By Derived Categories of Schemes, Lemma 36.30.4 the complex $Rf_*P$ is perfect on $Y$. Let $K_ i$ be a family of objects of $D_\mathit{QCoh}(\mathcal{O}_ Y)$. Then

\begin{align*} \mathop{\mathrm{Hom}}\nolimits _{D(\mathcal{O}_ X)}(P, a(\bigoplus K_ i)) & = \mathop{\mathrm{Hom}}\nolimits _{D(\mathcal{O}_ Y)}(Rf_*P, \bigoplus K_ i) \\ & = \bigoplus \mathop{\mathrm{Hom}}\nolimits _{D(\mathcal{O}_ Y)}(Rf_*P, K_ i) \\ & = \bigoplus \mathop{\mathrm{Hom}}\nolimits _{D(\mathcal{O}_ X)}(P, a(K_ i)) \end{align*}

because a perfect object is compact (Derived Categories of Schemes, Proposition 36.17.1). Since $D_\mathit{QCoh}(\mathcal{O}_ X)$ has a perfect generator (Derived Categories of Schemes, Theorem 36.15.3) we conclude that the map $\bigoplus a(K_ i) \to a(\bigoplus K_ i)$ is an isomorphism, i.e., $a$ commutes with direct sums. $\square$
