Remark 98.27.7. In Situation 98.27.1. Let $V$ be a locally Noetherian scheme over $S$. Let $(Z_ i, u'_ i, \hat x_ i) \in F(V)$ for $i = 1, 2$. Let $V'_ i \to V$, $\hat x'_ i$ and $x'_ i$ witness the compatibility between $u'_ i$ and $\hat x_ i$ for $i = 1, 2$.

Set $V' = V'_1 \times _ V V'_2$. Let $E' \to V'$ denote the equalizer of the morphisms

Set $Z = Z_1 \cap Z_2$. Let $E_ W \to V_{/Z}$ be the equalizer of the morphisms

Observe that $E' \to V$ is separated and locally of finite type and that $E_ W$ is a locally Noetherian formal algebraic space separated over $V$. The compatibilities between the various morphisms involved show that

$\mathop{\mathrm{Im}}(E' \to V) \cap (Z_1 \cup Z_2)$ is contained in $Z = Z_1 \cap Z_2$,

the morphism $E' \times _ V (V \setminus Z) \to V \setminus Z$ is a monomorphism and is equal to the equalizer of the restrictions of $u'_1$ and $u'_2$ to $V \setminus (Z_1 \cup Z_2)$,

the morphism $E'_{/Z} \to V_{/Z}$ factors through $E_ W$ and the diagram

\[ \xymatrix{ E'_{/Z} \ar[r] \ar[d] & X'_{/T'} \ar[d]^ g \\ E_ W \ar[r] & W } \]is cartesian. In particular, the morphism $E'_{/Z} \to E_ W$ is a formal modification as the base change of $g$,

$E'$, $(E' \to V)^{-1}Z$, and $E'_{/Z} \to E_ W$ is a triple as in Situation 98.27.1 with base scheme the locally Noetherian scheme $V$,

given a morphism $\varphi : A \to V$ of locally Noetherian schemes, the following are equivalent

$(Z_1, u'_1, \hat x_1)$ and $(Z_2, u'_2, \hat x_2)$ restrict to the same element of $F(A)$,

$A \setminus \varphi ^{-1}(Z) \to V \setminus Z$ factors through $E' \times _ V (V \setminus Z)$ and $A_{/\varphi ^{-1}(Z)} \to V_{/Z}$ factors through $E_ W$.

We conclude, using Lemmas 98.27.5 and 98.27.6, that if there is a solution $E \to V$ for the triple in (4), then $E$ represents $F \times _{\Delta , F \times F} V$ on the category of locally Noetherian schemes over $V$.
