### Godement resolution

Let $k$ be a field, $X$ a reasonable space, $k_{X}$ the constant (1-dimensional) sheaf on $X$. Write $\mathcal{G}^{\bullet}(k_X)$ for the Godement resolution of $k_X$. For each $n>0$, is ...

### Are subfunctors of left exact functors also left exact?

Consider the direct image functor $f_*: Sh(X) \rightarrow Sh(Y)$, let $X$ and $Y$ be topological spaces, let $f: X \rightarrow Y$ be a continuous map, let $G \in Sh(X)$ be a sheaf. I was reading this ...

Does the Čech cohomology always give rise to a long exact sequences given a short exact sequence of sheaves?
Clearly that cannot occur for sheaves on a paracomact (perhaps also Hausdorff, I'm not ...

### Sheaf Hom and the functor Hom

Let $\varepsilon: 0\to A\to B \to C\to 0$ be an exact sequence of ${\cal O}_X$-modules with $X$ a quasi-compact space. $\varepsilon$ is called pure if the induced sequence
$0\rightarrow ...

Let $X$ be some space, I have basically 2 questions:
1 - Are sheaves on paracompact but not Hausdorff spaces acyclic? I've been doing some reading and some authors say that soft sheaves on ...

### Are presheaves of constant functions sheaves?

Hey there, I was reading 'An introduction to homological algebra' by Rotman, and on page 279 in the section about sheaves, example 5.64, Rotman gives an example of a constant presheaf $\mathcal{P}$ ...

### Projectivity of free O_X modules with respect to the sheafy hom?

I've heard that given a ringed topos $(X,\mathcal{O}_X)$, the functor $Hom_{\mathcal{O}_X-\operatorname{Mod}}(\mathcal{O}_X, -)$ often fails to be exact. Is this only the case for the unenriched hom ...

### Idea of presheaf cohomology vs. sheaf cohomology

Let $X$ be a topological space and $U$ an open cover of $X$.
In this thread Angelo explained beautifully how presheaf cohomology (Cech cohomology) relates to sheaf cohomology:
The zeroth Cech ...

### Question about hypercohomology / spectral sequence of a complex of “almost-acyclic” sheaves

I have a very particular situation involving a (non-exact) complex $K$ of coherent sheaves on a nonsingular projective variety $X$, and I need to compute the hypercohomology of the complex. The ...

### Closed monoidal structure on the derived category of sheaves

Given a topological space X, i'd like to find Der X - the derived category of sheaves of abelian groups on X - to be a closed monoidal category. Hom should be cohomological and the internal-hom should ...

### Equivalence of ordered and unordered cech cohomology.

Given a topological space X and a finite cover X = $\cup X_i$, one can define Cech cohomology of a sheaf of abelian groups F with respect to the cover $\{X_i\}$ in two different ways:
(Ordered): ...

### Heuristic explanation of why we lose projectives in sheaves.

We know that presheaves of any category have enough projectives and that sheaves do not, why is this, and how does it effect our thinking?
This question was asked(and I found it very helpful) but I ...

### When are there enough projective sheaves on a space X?

This question is being asked on behalf of a colleague of mine.
Let X be a topological space. It is well known that the abelian category of sheaves on X has enough injectives: that is, every sheaf ...
