### Derived pushforward of a projection

Given two smooth projective varieties, $X,Y$, consider their derived categories $D^b(X), D^b(Y)$. Let $\mathcal{F}$ a complex of coherent sheaves in $D^b(X \times Y)$, why the derived pushforward of ...

### Convex ordering of measures that are obtained by different push-forwards of a same measure

Suppose that we have a probability measure $\rho$ which is supported on $\mathbb{R}^d$ and absolutely continuous w.r.t. the Lebesgue measure. Take two vector fields $F, G : \mathbb{R}^d \rightarrow \...

### Approximation of two densities with a single transformation

Let $p_1$ and $p_2$ be two probability densities and $X_i\sim N(\mu_i,\Sigma_i)$. Write $w(X)\sim p$ if the law of the random variable $w(X)$ has a density equal to $p$. For general densities $p_i$, ...

### Change of coordinates for coends

I recall that there was a theorem mimicking the change of variables' integral formula. Surprisingly, I can't find it on the Fosco Loregian book. The change of variables formula states that, if $f: E \...

### A question about pushforward measures and continuous Borel isomorphisms

It is fairly well known that if $\mu$ and $\nu$ are nonatomic measures on the standard Borel spaces $(X,B)$ and $(Y,C)$ such that $\mu(X)=\nu(Y)$. If $X$ and $Y$ are uncountable, then there exists a ...

### Relation between push forward by diagonal morphism and higher direct image functors

Let $f : X \to Y$ be a morphism between two Noetherian schemes. Then $f_*$(respect to $R^1f_*$) sends coherent sheaves to coherent sheaves if and only if $f$ is universally closed (respect to ...

### Rewriting PDE as "push-forward"

Suppose that we have the following PDE
$$\partial_t \mu_t = \nabla\cdot \left(\nabla \mu_t - (b*\mu_t)\mu_t\right), \tag{1}$$
with $\mu_0$ being a (smooth) probability measure/density on $\mathbb{R}^d$...

### Pushforward of a very ample line bundle on a curve to $\mathbb{P}^1$

Let $p:C\to\mathbb{P}^1$ be a degree $k$ morphism from a smooth projective curve $C$ to the projective line and $L$ a very ample line bundle on $C$. We know that $p_*\mathcal{O}_C(L)$ is a rank $k$ ...

### Isomorphism of probability spaces

Consider a surjective map $f:(X, \sigma(f)) \to (Y, \mathcal{Y})$, if a measure $\nu$ is given in $(Y, \mathcal{Y})$ the pullback $\nu(f(\cdot))$ is a measure on $(X, \sigma(f))$, similarly if $\mu$ ...

Why do all measure theory textbooks present the concept of push-forward measure, but never the concept of pull-back measure? Doesn't the latter exist?
It's true that the naive treatment of such a ...

### sheaves for which the derived (compact or not) pushforward is zero

Conventions: sheaf = complex of constructible sheaves (in the l-adic setup with etale tplg or in the complex coefficients setup with analytical tplg).
I would like to understand if there is an ...
