### On various “extension closures” and “orthogonals” in triangulated categories

A vague form of my question is the following one: for a class of objects $D$ of a triangulated category $C$ we consider the class $E$ of objects that satisfy $Mor_{C}(d,e)=\{0\}\ \forall d\in D$; ...

### Torsion theory for quasi-coherent sheaves?

In a category $\mathcal C$, we will say that $(\mathcal T,\mathcal F)$ is a torsion theory if it satisfies:
(1) $Hom(T,F)=0$ for all $T\in \mathcal T$ and $F\in \mathcal F$.
(2) If $Hom(T,F)=0$ for ...

### torsion theories localizing the base ring to the same ring

If two torsion theories on a ring localize the ring to the same extension ring, I can find no reason that their "meet" in the lattice of torsion theories must also localize to the same ring. I cannot ...

### Definition of torsion sheaf on reducible spaces

I need to discuss torsion-free sheaves on reduced, but possibly reducible spaces. Here "torsion" means "element is annihilated by a non-zero-divisor". The standard references (EGA, Hartshorne, ...) ...

### (Co)localization of the derived category

Let me start saying that a similar question can be stated for general locally Noetherian Grothendieck categories but I state it for categories of modules as it is simpler. So we fix a right Noetherian ...

### Looking for reference talking about torsion theory on coherent sheaves on projective space

I am looking for reference talking about how torsion theory play roles in algebraic geometry. I will be really happy to see some concrete examples. Say, talking about torsion theory in $Coh(P^{1})$.

### What is the relationship between t-structure and Torsion pair?

I am away from Torsion theory in abelian category for some while. So it might be a stupid question.
The definition of a torsion pair in the category of modules is as follows:
Definition:
A pair ...
