Definition 37.78.1. A morphism $f : X \to Y$ of schemes is said to be *completely decomposed*^{1} if for all points $y \in Y$ there is a point $x \in X$ with $f(x) = y$ such that the field extension $\kappa (x)/\kappa (y)$ is trivial. A family of morphisms $\{ f_ i : X_ i \to Y\} _{i \in I}$ of schemes with fixed target is said to be *completely decomposed* if $\coprod f_ i : \coprod Y_ i \to X$ is completely decomposed.
