coherent analytic sheaf

Let M be a complex manifold and β„± be an analytic sheaf. For z∈M, denote by β„±z the stalk of β„± at z. By π’ͺ denote the sheaf of germs of analytic functionsMathworldPlanetmath. For a section f and a point z∈M denote by fz the germ of f at z.

β„± is said to be locally finitely generatedMathworldPlanetmath if for every z∈M, there is a neighbourhood U of z, a finite number of sections f1,…,fkβˆˆΞ“β’(U,β„±) such that for each w∈U, β„±w is a finitely generated module (as an π’ͺw-module).

Let U be a neighbourhood in M and Suppose that f1,…,fk are sections in Γ⁒(U,β„±). Let ℛ⁒(f1,…,fk) be the subsheaf of π’ͺk over U consisting of the germs


ℛ⁒(f1,…,fk) is called the sheaf of relations.


β„± is called a coherent analytic sheaf if β„± is locally finitely generated and if for every open subset UβŠ‚M, and f1,…,fkβˆˆΞ“β’(U,β„±), the sheaf ℛ⁒(f1,…,fk) is locally finitely generated.
