coherent cohomology

(also nonabelian homological algebra)

Given a (Noetherian) ringed topos $(\mathcal{X}, \mathcal{O}_X)$, then a chain complex $V_\bullet$ of modules over the structure sheaf is said to have *(quasi-)coherent cohomology* if all its chain homology groups are (quasi-)coherent sheaves (coherent objects).

Over a (finite-dimensional) Noetherian scheme $X$ the derived category of quasi-coherent sheaves is canonically equivalent to that of sheaves with quasicoherent cohomology.

The coherent version of the statement is (SGA 6, Exp. II, Corollaire 2.2.2.1) while the quasi-coherent version is (SGA 6, Exp. II, Proposition 3.7, b)). A review appears also as (Orlov 03, prop. 1.3.2).

See also the discussion at *triangulated categories of sheaves*.
