On locally coherent hearts

Manuel Saorín

Vol. 287 (2017), No. 1, 199–221

Let G be a locally coherent Grothendieck category. We show that, under particular conditions, if a t-structure τ in the unbounded derived category D(G) restricts to the bounded derived category Db( fp(G)) of its category of finitely presented (i.e, coherent) objects, then its heart τ is a locally coherent Grothendieck category on which τ Db( fp(G)) is the class of finitely presented objects. Those particular conditions are always satisfied when G is arbitrary and τ is the Happel–Reiten–Smalø t-structure in D(G) associated to a torsion pair in  fp(G) or when G =  Qcoh(X) is the category of quasicoherent sheaves on a noetherian affine scheme X and τ is any compactly generated t-structure in D(X) := D( Qcoh(X)) which restricts to Db(X) := Db( coh(X)). In particular, the heart of any t-structure in Db(X) is the category of finitely presented objects of a locally coherent Grothendieck category.
