Many results on limits of algebraic stacks and algebraic spaces have been obtained by David Rydh in \cite{rydh_approx}. \section{Conventions} \label{section-conventions} \noindent We continue to use the conventions and the abuse of language introduced in Properties of Stacks, Section \ref{stacks-properties-section-conventions}. \section{Morphisms of finite presentation} \label{section-finite-presentation} \noindent This section is the analogue of Limits of Spaces, Section \ref{spaces-limits-section-finite-presentation}. There we defined what it means for a transformation of functors on $\Sch$ to be limit preserving (we suggest looking at the characterization in Limits of Spaces, Lemma \ref{spaces-limits-lemma-characterize-relative-limit-preserving}). In Criteria for Representability, Section \ref{criteria-section-limit-preserving} we defined the notion limit preserving on objects''. Recall that in Artin's Axioms, Section \ref{artin-section-limits} we have defined what it means for a category fibred in groupoids over $\Sch$ to be limit preserving. Combining these we get the following notion. \begin{definition} \label{definition-limit-preserving} Let $S$ be a scheme. Let $f : \mathcal{X} \to \mathcal{Y}$ be a $1$-morphism of categories fibred in groupoids over $(\Sch/S)_{fppf}$. We say $f$ is {\it limit preserving} if for every directed limit $U = \lim U_i$ of affine schemes over $S$ the diagram $$\xymatrix{ \colim \mathcal{X}_{U_i} \ar[r] \ar[d]_f & \mathcal{X}_U \ar[d]^f \\ \colim \mathcal{Y}_{U_i} \ar[r] & \mathcal{Y}_U }$$ of fibre categories is $2$-cartesian. \end{definition} \begin{lemma} \label{lemma-limit-preserving-objects} Let $S$ be a scheme. Let $f : \mathcal{X} \to \mathcal{Y}$ be a $1$-morphism of categories fibred in groupoids over $(\Sch/S)_{fppf}$. If $f$ is limit preserving (Definition \ref{definition-limit-preserving}), then $f$ is limit preserving on objects (Criteria for Representability, Section \ref{criteria-section-limit-preserving}). \end{lemma} \begin{proof} If for every directed limit $U = \lim U_i$ of affine schemes over $U$, the functor $$\colim \mathcal{X}_{U_i} \longrightarrow (\colim \mathcal{Y}_{U_i}) \times_{\mathcal{Y}_U} \mathcal{X}_U$$ is essentially surjective, then $f$ is limit preserving on objects. \end{proof} \begin{lemma} \label{lemma-base-change-limit-preserving} Let $p : \mathcal{X} \to \mathcal{Y}$ and $q : \mathcal{Z} \to \mathcal{Y}$ be $1$-morphisms of categories fibred in groupoids over $(\Sch/S)_{fppf}$. If $p : \mathcal{X} \to \mathcal{Y}$ is limit preserving, then so is the base change $p' : \mathcal{X} \times_\mathcal{Y} \mathcal{Z} \to \mathcal{Z}$ of $p$ by $q$. \end{lemma} \begin{proof} This is formal. Let $U = \lim_{i \in I} U_i$ be the directed limit of affine schemes $U_i$ over $S$. For each $i$ we have $$(\mathcal{X} \times_\mathcal{Y} \mathcal{Z})_{U_i} = \mathcal{X}_{U_i} \times_{\mathcal{Y}_{U_i}} \mathcal{Z}_{U_i}$$ Filtered colimits commute with $2$-fibre products of categories (details omitted) hence if $p$ is limit preserving we get \begin{align*} \colim (\mathcal{X} \times_\mathcal{Y} \mathcal{Z})_{U_i} & = \colim \mathcal{X}_{U_i} \times_{\colim \mathcal{Y}_{U_i}} \colim \mathcal{Z}_{U_i} \\ & = \mathcal{X}_U \times_{\mathcal{Y}_U} \colim \mathcal{Y}_{U_i} \times_{\colim \mathcal{Y}_{U_i}} \colim \mathcal{Z}_{U_i} \\ & = \mathcal{X}_U \times_{\mathcal{Y}_U} \colim \mathcal{Z}_{U_i} \\ & = \mathcal{X}_U \times_{\mathcal{Y}_U} \mathcal{Z}_U \times_{\mathcal{Z}_U} \colim \mathcal{Z}_{U_i} \\ & = (\mathcal{X} \times_\mathcal{Y} \mathcal{Z})_U \times_{\mathcal{Z}_U} \colim \mathcal{Z}_{U_i} \end{align*} as desired. \end{proof} \begin{lemma} \label{lemma-composition-limit-preserving} Let $p : \mathcal{X} \to \mathcal{Y}$ and $q : \mathcal{Y} \to \mathcal{Z}$ be $1$-morphisms of categories fibred in groupoids over $(\Sch/S)_{fppf}$. If $p$ and $q$ are limit preserving, then so is the composition $q \circ p$. \end{lemma} \begin{proof} This is formal. Let $U = \lim_{i \in I} U_i$ be the directed limit of affine schemes $U_i$ over $S$. If $p$ and $q$ are limit preserving we get \begin{align*} \colim \mathcal{X}_{U_i} & = \mathcal{X}_U \times_{\mathcal{Y}_U} \colim \mathcal{Y}_{U_i} \\ & = \mathcal{X}_U \times_{\mathcal{Y}_U} \mathcal{Y}_U \times_{\mathcal{Z}_U} \colim \mathcal{Z}_{U_i} \\ & = \mathcal{X}_U \times_{\mathcal{Z}_U} \colim \mathcal{Z}_{U_i} \end{align*} as desired. \end{proof} \begin{lemma} \label{lemma-representable-by-spaces-limit-preserving} Let $p : \mathcal{X} \to \mathcal{Y}$ be a $1$-morphism of categories fibred in groupoids over $(\Sch/S)_{fppf}$. If $p$ is representable by algebraic spaces, then the following are equivalent: \begin{enumerate} \item $p$ is limit preserving, \item $p$ is limit preserving on objects, and \item $p$ is locally of finite presentation (see Algebraic Stacks, Definition \ref{algebraic-definition-relative-representable-property}). \end{enumerate} \end{lemma} \begin{proof} In Criteria for Representability, Lemma \ref{criteria-lemma-representable-by-spaces-limit-preserving} we have seen that (2) and (3) are equivalent. Thus it suffices to show that (1) and (2) are equivalent. One direction we saw in Lemma \ref{lemma-limit-preserving-objects}. For the other direction, let $U = \lim_{i \in I} U_i$ be the directed limit of affine schemes $U_i$ over $S$. We have to show that $$\colim \mathcal{X}_{U_i} \longrightarrow \mathcal{X}_U \times_{\mathcal{Y}_U} \colim \mathcal{Y}_{U_i}$$ is an equivalence. Since we are assuming (2) we know that it is essentially surjective. Hence we need to prove it is fully faithful. Since $p$ is faithful on fibre categories (Algebraic Stacks, Lemma \ref{algebraic-lemma-criterion-map-representable-spaces-fibred-in-groupoids}) we see that the functor is faithful. Let $x_i$ and $x'_i$ be objects in the fibre category of $\mathcal{X}$ over $U_i$. The functor above sends $x_i$ to $(x_i|_U, p(x_i), can)$ where $can$ is the canonical isomorphism $p(x_i|_U) \to p(x_i)|_U$. Thus we assume given a morphism $$(\alpha, \beta_i) : (x_i|_U, p(x_i), can) \longrightarrow (x'_i|_U, p(x'_i), can)$$ in the category of the right hand side of the first displayed arrow of this proof. Our task is to produce an $i' \geq i$ and a morphism $x_i|_{U_{i'}} \to x'_i|_{U_{i'}}$ which maps to $(\alpha, \beta_i|_{U_{i'}})$. \medskip\noindent Set $y_i = p(x_i)$ and $y'_i = p(x'_i)$. By (Algebraic Stacks, Lemma \ref{algebraic-lemma-criterion-map-representable-spaces-fibred-in-groupoids}) the functor $$X_{y_i} : (\Sch/U_i)^{opp} \to \textit{Sets},\quad V/U_i \mapsto \{(x, \phi) \mid x \in \Ob(\mathcal{X}_V), \phi : f(x) \to y_i|V\}/\cong$$ is an algebraic space over $U_i$ and the same is true for the analogously defined functor $X_{y'_i}$. Since (2) is equivalent to (3) we see that $X_{y'_i}$ is locally of finite presentation over $U_i$. Observe that $(x_i, \text{id})$ and $(x'_i, \text{id})$ define $U_i$-valued points of $X_{y_i}$ and $X_{y'_i}$. There is a transformation of functors $$\beta_i : X_{y_i} \to X_{y'_i},\quad (x/V, \phi) \mapsto (x/V, \beta_i|_V \circ \phi)$$ in other words, this is a morphism of algebraic spaces over $U_i$. We claim that $$\xymatrix{ U \ar[d] \ar[rr] & & U_i \ar[d]^{(x'_i, \text{id})} \\ U_i \ar[r]^{(x_i, \text{id})} & X_{y_i} \ar[r]^{\beta_i} & X_{y'_i} }$$ commutes. Namely, this is equivalent to the condition that the pairs $(x_i|_U, \beta_i|_U)$ and $(x'_i|_U, \text{id})$ as in the definition of the functor $X_{y'_i}$ are isomorphic. And the morphism $\alpha : x_i|_U \to x'_i|_U$ exactly produces such an isomorphism. Arguing backwards the reader sees that if we can find an $i' \geq i$ such that the diagram $$\xymatrix{ U_{i'} \ar[d] \ar[rr] & & U_i \ar[d]^{(x'_i, \text{id})} \\ U_i \ar[r]^{(x_i, \text{id})} & X_{y_i} \ar[r]^{\beta_i} & X_{y'_i} }$$ commutes, then we obtain an isomorphism $x_i|_{U_{i'}} \to x'_i|_{U_{i'}}$ which is a solution to the problem posed in the preceding paragraph. However, the diagonal morphism $$\Delta : X_{y'_i} \to X_{y'_i} \times_{U_i} X_{y'_i}$$ is locally of finite presentation (Morphisms of Spaces, Lemma \ref{spaces-morphisms-lemma-diagonal-morphism-finite-type}) hence the fact that $U \to U_i$ equalizes the two morphisms to $X_{y'_i}$, means that for some $i' \geq i$ the morphism $U_{i'} \to U_i$ equalizes the two morphisms, see Limits of Spaces, Proposition \ref{spaces-limits-proposition-characterize-locally-finite-presentation}. \end{proof} \begin{lemma} \label{lemma-limit-preserving-diagonal} Let $p : \mathcal{X} \to \mathcal{Y}$ be a $1$-morphism of categories fibred in groupoids over $(\Sch/S)_{fppf}$. The following are equivalent \begin{enumerate} \item the diagonal $\Delta : \mathcal{X} \to \mathcal{X} \times_\mathcal{Y} \mathcal{X}$ is limit preserving, and \item for every directed limit $U = \lim U_i$ of affine schemes over $S$ the functor $$\colim \mathcal{X}_{U_i} \longrightarrow \mathcal{X}_U \times_{\mathcal{Y}_U} \colim \mathcal{Y}_{U_i}$$ is fully faithful. \end{enumerate} In particular, if $p$ is limit preserving, then $\Delta$ is too. \end{lemma} \begin{proof} Let $U = \lim U_i$ be a directed limit of affine schemes over $S$. We claim that the functor $$\colim \mathcal{X}_{U_i} \longrightarrow \mathcal{X}_U \times_{\mathcal{Y}_U} \colim \mathcal{Y}_{U_i}$$ is fully faithful if and only if the functor $$\colim \mathcal{X}_{U_i} \longrightarrow \mathcal{X}_U \times_{(\mathcal{X} \times_\mathcal{Y} \mathcal{X})_U} \colim (\mathcal{X} \times_\mathcal{Y} \mathcal{X})_{U_i}$$ is an equivalence. This will prove the lemma. Since $(\mathcal{X} \times_\mathcal{Y} \mathcal{X})_U = \mathcal{X}_U \times_{\mathcal{Y}_U} \mathcal{X}_U$ and $(\mathcal{X} \times_\mathcal{Y} \mathcal{X})_{U_i} = \mathcal{X}_{U_i} \times_{\mathcal{Y}_{U_i}} \mathcal{X}_{U_i}$ this is a purely category theoretic assertion which we discuss in the next paragraph. \medskip\noindent Let $\mathcal{I}$ be a filtered index category. Let $(\mathcal{C}_i)$ and $(\mathcal{D}_i)$ be systems of groupoids over $\mathcal{I}$. Let $p : (\mathcal{C}_i) \to (\mathcal{D}_i)$ be a map of systems of groupoids over $\mathcal{I}$. Suppose we have a functor $p : \mathcal{C} \to \mathcal{D}$ of groupoids and functors $f : \colim \mathcal{C}_i \to \mathcal{C}$ and $g : \colim \mathcal{D}_i \to \mathcal{D}$ fitting into a commutative diagram $$\xymatrix{ \colim \mathcal{C}_i \ar[d]_p \ar[r]_f & \mathcal{C} \ar[d]^p \\ \colim \mathcal{D}_i \ar[r]^g & \mathcal{D} }$$ Then we claim that $$A : \colim \mathcal{C}_i \longrightarrow \mathcal{C} \times_\mathcal{D} \colim \mathcal{D}_i$$ is fully faithful if and only if the functor $$B : \colim \mathcal{C}_i \longrightarrow \mathcal{C} \times_{\Delta, \mathcal{C} \times_\mathcal{D} \mathcal{C}, f \times_g f} \colim (\mathcal{C}_i \times_{\mathcal{D}_i} \mathcal{C}_i)$$ is an equivalence. Set $\mathcal{C}' = \colim \mathcal{C}_i$ and $\mathcal{D}' = \colim \mathcal{D}_i$. Since $2$-fibre products commute with filtered colimits we see that $A$ and $B$ become the functors $$A' : \mathcal{C}' \to \mathcal{C} \times_\mathcal{D} \mathcal{D}' \quad\text{and}\quad B' : \mathcal{C}' \longrightarrow \mathcal{C} \times_{\Delta, \mathcal{C} \times_\mathcal{D} \mathcal{C}, f \times_g f} (\mathcal{C}' \times_{\mathcal{D}'} \mathcal{C}')$$ Thus it suffices to prove that if $$\xymatrix{ \mathcal{C}' \ar[d]_p \ar[r]_f & \mathcal{C} \ar[d]^p \\ \mathcal{D}' \ar[r]^g & \mathcal{D} }$$ is a commutative diagram of groupoids, then $A'$ is fully faithful if and only if $B'$ is an equivalence. This follows from Categories, Lemma \ref{categories-lemma-fully-faithful-diagonal-equivalence} (with trivial, i.e., punctual, base category) because $$\mathcal{C} \times_{\Delta, \mathcal{C} \times_\mathcal{D} \mathcal{C}, f \times_g f} (\mathcal{C}' \times_{\mathcal{D}'} \mathcal{C}') = \mathcal{C}' \times_{A', \mathcal{C} \times_\mathcal{D} \mathcal{D}', A'} \mathcal{C}'$$ This finishes the proof. \end{proof} \begin{lemma} \label{lemma-locally-finite-presentation-limit-preserving} Let $S$ be a scheme. Let $\mathcal{X}$ be an algebraic stack over $S$. If $\mathcal{X} \to S$ is locally of finite presentation, then $\mathcal{X}$ is limit preserving in the sense of Artin's Axioms, Definition \ref{artin-definition-limit-preserving} (equivalently: the morphism $\mathcal{X} \to S$ is limit preserving). \end{lemma} \begin{proof} Choose a surjective smooth morphism $U \to \mathcal{X}$ for some scheme $U$. Then $U \to S$ is locally of finite presentation, see Morphisms of Stacks, Section \ref{stacks-morphisms-section-finite-presentation}. We can write $\mathcal{X} = [U/R]$ for some smooth groupoid in algebraic spaces $(U, R, s, t, c)$, see Algebraic Stacks, Lemma \ref{algebraic-lemma-stack-presentation}. Since $U$ is locally of finite presentation over $S$ it follows that the the algebraic space $R$ is locally of finite presentation over $S$. Recall that $[U/R]$ is the stack in groupoids over $(\Sch/S)_{fppf}$ obtained by stackyfying the category fibred in groupoids whose fibre category over $T$ is the groupoid $(U(T), R(T), s, t, c)$. Since $U$ and $R$ are limit preserving as functors (Limits of Spaces, Proposition \ref{spaces-limits-proposition-characterize-locally-finite-presentation}) this category fibred in groupoids is limit preserving. Thus it suffices to show that fppf stackyfication preserves the property of being limit preserving. This is true (hint: use Limits of Spaces, Lemma \ref{spaces-limits-lemma-limit-fppf-topology}). However, we give a direct proof below using that in this case we know what the stackyfication amounts to. \medskip\noindent Let $T = \lim T_\lambda$ be a directed limit of affine schemes over $S$. We have to show that the functor $$\colim [U/R]_{T_\lambda} \longrightarrow [U/R]_T$$ is an equivalence of categories. Let us show this functor is essentially surjective. Let $x \in \Ob([U/R]_T)$. In Groupoids in Spaces, Lemma \ref{spaces-groupoids-lemma-quotient-stack-objects} the reader finds a description of the category $[U/R]_T$. In particular $x$ corresponds to an fppf covering $\{T_i \to T\}_{i \in I}$ and a $[U/R]$-descent datum $(u_i, r_{ij})$ relative to this covering. After refining this covering we may assume it is a standard fppf covering of the affine scheme $T$. By Limits of Spaces, Lemma \ref{spaces-limits-lemma-limit-fppf-topology} we may choose a $\lambda$ and a standard fppf covering $\{T_{\lambda, i} \to T_\lambda\}_{i \in I}$ whose base change to $T$ is equal to $\{T_i \to T\}_{i \in I}$. For each $i$, after increasing $\lambda$, we can find a $u_{\lambda, i} : T_{\lambda, i} \to U$ whose composition with $T_i \to T_{\lambda, i}$ is the given morphism $u_i$ (this is where we use that $U$ is limit preserving). Similarly, for each $i, j$, after increasing $\lambda$, we can find a $r_{\lambda, ij} : T_{\lambda, i} \times_{T_\lambda} T_{\lambda, j} \to R$ whose composition with $T_{ij} \to T_{\lambda, ij}$ is the given morphism $r_{ij}$ (this is where we use that $R$ is limit preserving). After increasing $\lambda$ we can further assume that $$s \circ r_{\lambda, ij} = u_{\lambda, i} \circ \text{pr}_0 \quad\text{and}\quad t \circ r_{\lambda, ij} = u_{\lambda, j} \circ \text{pr}_1,$$ and $$c \circ (r_{\lambda, jk} \circ \text{pr}_{12}, r_{\lambda, ij} \circ \text{pr}_{01}) = r_{\lambda, ik} \circ \text{pr}_{02}.$$ In other words, we may assume that $(u_{\lambda, i}, r_{\lambda, ij})$ is a $[U/R]$-descent datum relative to the covering $\{T_{\lambda, i} \to T_\lambda\}_{i \in I}$. Then we obtain a corresponding object of $[U/R]$ over $T_\lambda$ whose pullback to $T$ is isomorphic to $x$ as desired. The proof of fully faithfulness works in exactly the same way using the description of morphisms in in the fibre categories of $[U/T]$ given in Groupoids in Spaces, Lemma \ref{spaces-groupoids-lemma-quotient-stack-objects}. \end{proof} \begin{proposition} \label{proposition-characterize-locally-finite-presentation} \begin{reference} This is a special case of \cite[Lemma 2.3.15]{Emerton-Gee} \end{reference} Let $f : \mathcal{X} \to \mathcal{Y}$ be a morphism of algebraic stacks. The following are equivalent \begin{enumerate} \item $f$ is limit preserving, \item $f$ is limit preserving on objects, and \item $f$ is locally of finite presentation. \end{enumerate} \end{proposition} \begin{proof} Assume (3). Let $T = \lim T_i$ be a directed limit of affine schemes. Consider the functor $$\colim \mathcal{X}_{T_i} \longrightarrow \mathcal{X}_T \times_{\mathcal{Y}_T} \colim \mathcal{Y}_{T_i}$$ Let $(x, y_i, \beta)$ be an object on the right hand side, i.e., $x \in \Ob(\mathcal{X}_T)$, $y_i \in \Ob(\mathcal{Y}_{T_i})$, and $\beta : f(x) \to y_i|_T$ in $\mathcal{Y}_T$. Then we can consider $(x, y_i, \beta)$ as an object of the algebraic stack $\mathcal{X}_{y_i} = \mathcal{X} \times_{\mathcal{Y}, y_i} T_i$ over $T$. Since $\mathcal{X}_{y_i} \to T_i$ is locally of finite presentation (as a base change of $f$) we see that it is limit preserving by Lemma \ref{lemma-locally-finite-presentation-limit-preserving}. This means that $(x, y_i, \beta)$ comes from an object over $T_{i'}$ for some $i' \geq i$ and unwinding the definitions we find that $(x, y_i, \beta)$ is in the essential image of the displayed functor. In other words, the displayed functor is essentially surjective. Another formulation is that this means $f$ is limit preserving on objects. Now we apply this to the diagonal $\Delta$ of $f$. Namely, by Morphisms of Stacks, Lemma \ref{stacks-morphisms-lemma-diagonal-morphism-finite-type} the morphism $\Delta$ is locally of finite presentation. Thus the argument above shows that $\Delta$ is limit preserving on objects. By Lemma \ref{lemma-representable-by-spaces-limit-preserving} this implies that $\Delta$ is limit preserving. By Lemma \ref{lemma-limit-preserving-diagonal} we conclude that the displayed functor above is fully faithful. Thus it is an equivalence (as we already proved essential surjectivity) and we conclude that (1) holds. \medskip\noindent The implication (1) $\Rightarrow$ (2) is trivial. Assume (2). Choose a scheme $V$ and a surjective smooth morphism $V \to \mathcal{Y}$. By Criteria for Representability, Lemma \ref{criteria-lemma-base-change-limit-preserving} the base change $\mathcal{X} \times_\mathcal{Y} V \to V$ is limit preserving on objects. Choose a scheme $U$ and a surjective smooth morphism $U \to \mathcal{X} \times_\mathcal{Y} V$. Since a smooth morphism is locally of finite presentation, we see that $U \to \mathcal{X} \times_\mathcal{Y} V$ is limit preserving (first part of the proof). By Criteria for Representability, Lemma \ref{criteria-lemma-composition-limit-preserving} we find that the composition $U \to V$ is limit preserving on objects. We conclude that $U \to V$ is locally of finite presentation, see Criteria for Representability, Lemma \ref{criteria-lemma-representable-by-spaces-limit-preserving}. This is exactly the condition that $f$ is locally of finite presentation, see Morphisms of Stacks, Definition \ref{stacks-morphisms-definition-locally-finite-presentation}. \end{proof} \section{Descending properties} \label{section-descent} \noindent This section is the analogue of Limits, Section \ref{limits-section-descent}. \begin{situation} \label{situation-descent} Let $Y = \lim_{i \in I} Y_i$ be a limit of a directed system of algebraic spaces with affine transition morphisms. We assume that $X_i$ is quasi-compact and quasi-separated for all $i \in I$. We also choose an element $0 \in I$. \end{situation} \begin{lemma} \label{lemma-eventually-separated} In Situation \ref{situation-descent} assume that $\mathcal{X}_0 \to Y_0$ is a morphism from algebraic stack to $Y_0$. Assume $\mathcal{X}_0$ is quasi-compact and quasi-separated. If $Y \times_{Y_0} \mathcal{X}_0 \to Y$ is separated, then $Y_i \times_{Y_0} \mathcal{X}_0 \to Y_i$ is separated for all sufficiently large $i \in I$. \end{lemma} \begin{proof} Write $\mathcal{X} = Y \times_{Y_0} \mathcal{X}_0$ and $\mathcal{X}_i = Y_i \times_{Y_0} \mathcal{X}_0$. Choose an affine scheme $U_0$ and a surjective smooth morphism $U_0 \to \mathcal{X}_0$. Set $U = Y \times_{Y_0} U_0$ and $U_i = Y_i \times_{Y_0} U_0$. Then $U$ and $U_i$ are affine and $U \to \mathcal{X}$ and $U_i \to \mathcal{X}_i$ are smooth and surjective. Set $R_0 = U_0 \times_{\mathcal{X}_0} U_0$. Set $R = Y \times_{Y_0} R_0$ and $R_i = Y_i \times_{Y_0} R_0$. Then $R = U \times_\mathcal{X} U$ and $R_i = U_i \times_{\mathcal{X}_i} U_i$. \medskip\noindent With this notation note that $\mathcal{X} \to Y$ is separated implies that $R \to U \times_Y U$ is proper as the base change of $\mathcal{X} \to \mathcal{X} \times_Y \mathcal{X}$ by $U \times_Y U \to \mathcal{X} \times_Y \mathcal{X}$. Conversely, we see that $\mathcal{X}_i \to Y_i$ is separated if $R_i \to U_i \times_{Y_i} U_i$ is proper because $U_i \times_{Y_i} U_i \to \mathcal{X}_i \times_{Y_i} \mathcal{X}_i$ is surjective and smooth, see Properties of Stacks, Lemma \ref{stacks-properties-lemma-check-property-covering}. Observe that $R_0 \to U_0 \times_{Y_0} U_0$ is locally of finite type and that $R_0$ is quasi-compact and quasi-separated. By Limits of Spaces, Lemma \ref{spaces-limits-lemma-eventually-proper} we see that $R_i \to U_i \times_{Y_i} U_i$ is proper for large enough $i$ which finishes the proof. \end{proof} \section{Descending relative objects} \label{section-descending-relative} \noindent This section is the analogue of Limits of Spaces, Section \ref{spaces-limits-section-descending-relative}. \begin{lemma} \label{lemma-descend-a-stack-down} Let $I$ be a directed set. Let $(X_i, f_{ii'})$ be an inverse system of algebraic spaces over $I$. Assume \begin{enumerate} \item the morphisms $f_{ii'} : X_i \to X_{i'}$ are affine, \item the spaces $X_i$ are quasi-compact and quasi-separated. \end{enumerate} Let $X = \lim X_i$. If $\mathcal{X}$ is an algebraic stack of finite presentation over $X$, then there exists an $i \in I$ and an algebraic stack $\mathcal{X}_i$ of finite presentation over $X_i$ with $\mathcal{X} \cong \mathcal{X}_i \times_{X_i} X$ as algebraic stacks over $X$. \end{lemma} \begin{proof} By Morphisms of Stacks, Definition \ref{stacks-morphisms-definition-locally-finite-presentation} the morphism $\mathcal{X} \to X$ is quasi-compact, locally of finite presentation, and quasi-separated. Since $X$ is quasi-compact and $\mathcal{X} \to X$ is quasi-compact, we see that $\mathcal{X}$ is quasi-compact (Morphisms of Stacks, Definition \ref{stacks-morphisms-definition-quasi-compact}). Hence we can find an affine scheme $U$ and a surjective smooth morphism $U \to \mathcal{X}$ (Properties of Stacks, Lemma \ref{stacks-properties-lemma-quasi-compact-stack}). Set $R = U \times_\mathcal{X} U$. We obtain a smooth groupoid in algebraic spaces $(U, R, s, t, c)$ over $X$ such that $\mathcal{X} = [U/R]$, see Algebraic Stacks, Lemma \ref{algebraic-lemma-stack-presentation}. Since $\mathcal{X} \to X$ is quasi-separated and $X$ is quasi-separated we see that $\mathcal{X}$ is quasi-separated (Morphisms of Stacks, Lemma \ref{stacks-morphisms-lemma-composition-separated}). Thus $R \to U \times U$ is quasi-compact and quasi-separated (Morphisms of Stacks, Lemma \ref{stacks-morphisms-lemma-fibre-product-after-map}) and hence $R$ is a quasi-separated and quasi-compact algebraic space. On the other hand $U \to X$ is locally of finite presentation and hence also $R \to X$ is locally of finite presentation (because $s : R \to U$ is smooth hence locally of finite presentation). Thus $(U, R, s, t, c)$ is a groupoid object in the category of algebraic spaces which are of finite presentation over $X$. By Limits of Spaces, Lemma \ref{spaces-limits-lemma-descend-finite-presentation} there exists an $i$ and a groupoid in algebraic spaces $(U_i, R_i, s_i, t_i, c_i)$ over $X_i$ whose pullback to $X$ is isomorphic to $(U, R, s, t, c)$. After increasing $i$ we may assume that $s_i$ and $t_i$ are smooth, see Limits of Spaces, Lemma \ref{spaces-limits-lemma-descend-smooth}. The quotient stack $\mathcal{X}_i = [U_i/R_i]$ is an algebraic stack (Algebraic Stacks, Theorem \ref{algebraic-theorem-smooth-groupoid-gives-algebraic-stack}). \medskip\noindent There is a morphism $[U/R] \to [U_i/R_i]$, see Groupoids in Spaces, Lemma \ref{spaces-groupoids-lemma-quotient-stack-functorial}. We claim that combined with the morphisms $[U/R] \to X$ and $[U_i/R_i] \to X_i$ (Groupoids in Spaces, Lemma \ref{spaces-groupoids-lemma-quotient-stack-arrows}) we obtain an isomorphism (i.e., equivalence) $$[U/R] \longrightarrow [U_i/R_i] \times_{X_i} X$$ The corresponding map $$[U/_{\!p}R] \longrightarrow [U_i/_{\!p}R_i] \times_{X_i} X$$ on the level of presheaves of groupoids'' as in Groupoids in Spaces, Equation (\ref{spaces-groupoids-equation-quotient-stack}) is an isomorphism. Thus the claim follows from the fact that stackification commutes with fibre products, see Stacks, Lemma \ref{stacks-lemma-stackification-fibre-product-fibred-categories}. \end{proof} \section{Finite type closed in finite presentation} \label{section-finite-type-closed-in-finite-presentation} \noindent This section is the analogue of Limits of Spaces, Section \ref{spaces-limits-section-finite-type-closed-in-finite-presentation}. \begin{lemma} \label{lemma-finite-type-closed-in-finite-presentation} Let $f : \mathcal{X} \to Y$ be a morphism from an algebraic stack to an algebraic space. Assume: \begin{enumerate} \item $f$ is of finite type and quasi-separated, \item $Y$ is quasi-compact and quasi-separated. \end{enumerate} Then there exists a morphism of finite presentation $f' : \mathcal{X}' \to Y$ and a closed immersion $\mathcal{X} \to \mathcal{X}'$ of algebraic stacks over $Y$. \end{lemma} \begin{proof} Write $Y = \lim_{i \in I} Y_i$ as a limit of algebraic spaces over a directed set $I$ with affine transition morphisms and with $Y_i$ Noetherian, see Limits of Spaces, Proposition \ref{spaces-limits-proposition-approximate}. We will use the material from Limits of Spaces, Section \ref{spaces-limits-section-finite-type-quasi-separated}. \medskip\noindent Choose a presentation $\mathcal{X} = [U/R]$. Denote $(U, R, s, t, c, e, i)$ the corresponding groupoid in algebraic spaces over $Y$. We may and do assume $U$ is affine. Then $U$, $R$, $R \times_{s, U, t} R$ are quasi-separated algebraic spaces of finite type over $Y$. We have two morpisms $s, t : R \to U$, three morphisms $c : R \times_{s, U, t} R \to R$, $\text{pr}_1 : R \times_{s, U, t} R \to R$, $\text{pr}_2 : R \times_{s, U, t} R \to R$, a morphism $e : U \to R$, and finally a morphism $i : R \to R$. These morphisms satisfy a list of axioms which are detailed in Groupoids, Section \ref{groupoids-section-groupoids}. \medskip\noindent According to Limits of Spaces, Remark \ref{spaces-limits-remark-finite-type-gives-well-defined-system} we can find an $i_0 \in I$ and inverse systems \begin{enumerate} \item $(U_i)_{i \geq i_0}$, \item $(R_i)_{i \geq i_0}$, \item $(T_i)_{i \geq i_0}$ \end{enumerate} over $(Y_i)_{i \geq i_0}$ such that $U = \lim_{i \geq i_0} U_i$, $R = \lim_{i \geq i_0} R_i$, and $R \times_{s, U, t} R = \lim_{i \geq i_0} T_i$ and such that there exist morphisms of systems \begin{enumerate} \item $(s_i)_{i \geq i_0} : (R_i)_{i \geq i_0} \to (U_i)_{i \geq i_0}$, \item $(t_i)_{i \geq i_0} : (R_i)_{i \geq i_0} \to (U_i)_{i \geq i_0}$, \item $(c_i)_{i \geq i_0} : (T_i)_{i \geq i_0} \to (R_i)_{i \geq i_0}$, \item $(p_i)_{i \geq i_0} : (T_i)_{i \geq i_0} \to (R_i)_{i \geq i_0}$, \item $(q_i)_{i \geq i_0} : (T_i)_{i \geq i_0} \to (R_i)_{i \geq i_0}$, \item $(e_i)_{i \geq i_0} : (U_i)_{i \geq i_0} \to (R_i)_{i \geq i_0}$, \item $(i_i)_{i \geq i_0} : (R_i)_{i \geq i_0} \to (R_i)_{i \geq i_0}$ \end{enumerate} with $s = \lim_{i \geq i_0} s_i$, $t = \lim_{i \geq i_0} t_i$, $c = \lim_{i \geq i_0} c_i$, $\text{pr}_1 = \lim_{i \geq i_0} p_i$, $\text{pr}_2 = \lim_{i \geq i_0} q_i$, $e = \lim_{i \geq i_0} e_i$, and $i = \lim_{i \geq i_0} i_i$. By Limits of Spaces, Lemma \ref{spaces-limits-lemma-morphism-good-diagram-smooth} we see that we may assume that $s_i$ and $t_i$ are smooth (this may require increasing $i_0$). By Limits of Spaces, Lemma \ref{spaces-limits-lemma-morphism-good-diagram-flat} we may assume that the maps $R \to U \times_{U_i, s_i} R_i$ given by $s$ and $R \to R_i$ and $R \to U \times_{U_i, t_i} R_i$ given by $t$ and $R \to R_i$ are isomorphisms for all $i \geq i_0$. By Limits of Spaces, Lemma \ref{spaces-limits-lemma-good-diagram-fibre-product} we see that we may assume that the diagrams $$\xymatrix{ T_i \ar[r]_{q_i} \ar[d]_{p_i} & R_i \ar[d]^{t_i} \\ R_i \ar[r]^{s_i} & U_i }$$ are cartesian. The uniqueness of Limits of Spaces, Lemma \ref{spaces-limits-lemma-morphism-good-diagram} then guarantees that for a sufficiently large $i$ the relations between the morphisms $s, t, c, e, i$ mentioned above are satisfied by $s_i, t_i, c_i, e_i, i_i$. Fix such an $i$. \medskip\noindent It follows that $(U_i, R_i, s_i, t_i, c_i, e_i, i_i)$ is a smooth groupoid in algebraic spaces over $Y_i$. Hence $\mathcal{X}_i = [U_i/R_i]$ is an algebraic stack (Algebraic Stacks, Theorem \ref{algebraic-theorem-smooth-groupoid-gives-algebraic-stack}). The morphism of groupoids $$(U, R, s, t, c, e, i) \to (U_i, R_i, s_i, t_i, c_i, e_i, i_i)$$ over $Y \to Y_i$ determines a commutative diagram $$\xymatrix{ \mathcal{X} \ar[d] \ar[r] & \mathcal{X}_i \ar[d] \\ Y \ar[r] & Y_i }$$ (Groupoids in Spaces, Lemma \ref{spaces-groupoids-lemma-quotient-stack-functorial}). We claim that the morphism $\mathcal{X} \to Y \times_{Y_i} \mathcal{X}_i$ is a closed immersion. The claim finishes the proof because the algebraic stack $\mathcal{X}_i \to Y_i$ is of finite presentation by construction. To prove the claim, note that the left diagram $$\xymatrix{ U \ar[d] \ar[r] & U_i \ar[d] \\ \mathcal{X} \ar[r] & \mathcal{X}_i } \quad\quad \xymatrix{ U \ar[d] \ar[r] & Y \times_{Y_i} U_i \ar[d] \\ \mathcal{X} \ar[r] & Y \times_{Y_i} \mathcal{X}_i }$$ is cartesian by Groupoids in Spaces, Lemma \ref{spaces-groupoids-lemma-criterion-fibre-product} and the results mentioned above. Hence the right commutative diagram is cartesian too. Then the desired result follows from the fact that $U \to Y \times_{Y_i} U_i$ is a closed immersion by construction of the inverse system $(U_i)$ in Limits of Spaces, Lemma \ref{spaces-limits-lemma-limit-from-good-diagram}, the fact that $Y \times_{Y_i} U_i \to Y \times_{Y_i} \mathcal{X}_i$ is smooth and surjective, and Properties of Stacks, Lemma \ref{stacks-properties-lemma-check-immersion-covering}. \end{proof} \noindent There is a version for separated algebraic stacks. \begin{lemma} \label{lemma-separated-closed-in-finite-presentation} Let $f : \mathcal{X} \to Y$ be a morphism from an algebraic stack to an algebraic space. Assume: \begin{enumerate} \item $f$ is of finite type and separated, \item $Y$ is quasi-compact and quasi-separated. \end{enumerate} Then there exists a separated morphism of finite presentation $f' : \mathcal{X}' \to Y$ and a closed immersion $\mathcal{X} \to \mathcal{X}'$ of algebraic stacks over $Y$. \end{lemma} \begin{proof} First we use exactly the same procedure as in the proof of Lemma \ref{lemma-finite-type-closed-in-finite-presentation} (and we borrow its notation) to construct the embedding $\mathcal{X} \to \mathcal{X}'$ as a morphism $\mathcal{X} \to \mathcal{X}' = Y \times_{Y_i} \mathcal{X}_i$ with $\mathcal{X}_i = [U_i/R_i]$. Thus it is enough to show that $\mathcal{X}_i \to Y_i$ is separated for sufficiently large $i$. In other words, it is enough to show that $\mathcal{X}_i \to \mathcal{X}_i \times_{Y_i} \mathcal{X}_i$ is proper for $i$ sufficiently large. Since the morphism $U_i \times_{Y_i} U_i \to \mathcal{X}_i \times_{Y_i} \mathcal{X}_i$ is surjective and smooth and since $R_i = \mathcal{X}_i \times_{\mathcal{X}_i \times_{Y_i} \mathcal{X}_i} U_i \times_{Y_i} U_i$ it is enough to show that the morphism $(s_i, t_i) : R_i \to U_i \times_{Y_i} U_i$ is proper for $i$ sufficiently large, see Properties of Stacks, Lemma \ref{stacks-properties-lemma-check-property-covering}. We prove this in the next paragraph. \medskip\noindent Observe that $U \times_Y U \to Y$ is quasi-separated and of finite type. Hence we can use the construction of Limits of Spaces, Remark \ref{spaces-limits-remark-finite-type-gives-well-defined-system} to find an $i_1 \in I$ and an inverse system $(V_i)_{i \geq i_1}$ with $U \times_Y U = \lim_{i \geq i_1} V_i$. By Limits of Spaces, Lemma \ref{spaces-limits-lemma-good-diagram-fibre-product} for $i$ sufficiently large the functoriality of the construction applied to the projections $U \times_Y U \to U$ gives closed immersions $$V_i \to U_i \times_{Y_i} U_i$$ (There is a small mismatch here because in truth we should replace $Y_i$ by the scheme theoretic image of $Y \to Y_i$, but clearly this does not change the fibre product.) On the other hand, by Limits of Spaces, Lemma \ref{spaces-limits-lemma-morphism-good-diagram-proper} the functoriality applied to the proper morphism $(s, t) : R \to U \times_Y U$ (here we use that $\mathcal{X}$ is separated) leads to morphisms $R_i \to V_i$ which are proper for large enough $i$. Composing these morphisms we obtain a proper morphisms $R_i \to U_i \times_{Y_i} U_i$ for all $i$ large enough. The functoriality of the construction of Limits of Spaces, Remark \ref{spaces-limits-remark-finite-type-gives-well-defined-system} shows that this is the morphism is the same as $(s_i, t_i)$ for large enough $i$ and the proof is complete. \end{proof} \input{chapters} \bibliography{my} \bibliographystyle{amsalpha} \end{document}
