### Description of connecting maps of Derived functors

Let $C$ be an abelian category with enough injectives and $F$ be a left exact additive functor. Consider the short exact sequence $0 \to A' \to A \to A ''\to 0$. Therefore, we have connecting maps $\...

### Different definitions of derived functors

In principle one uses the notion of derived category, and the other doesn't.
Suppose $F: \mathcal A \to \mathcal B$ is a left exact (additive) functor between abelian categories, and suppose the ...

### Two basic questions on derived categories

Let $\mathcal{A}, \mathcal{B}$ be two abelian categories with sufficiently many injective objects (in my case these are categories of sheaves of vector spaces on a manifold).
Let $f_*\colon \mathcal{A}...
