    started Brauer group, collecting some references on the statement that/when Br(X)H et 2(X,𝔾 m) torBr(X) \simeq H^2_{et}(X, \mathbb{G}_m)_{tor} and moved notes from a talk by David Gepner on \infty-Brauer groups to there.

    I added the insightful references of Street at Azumaya algebra and at Brauer group:

    Thanks. I have changed “Brower group” to “Brauer group”, okay?

    So I have added a remark in a new section Relation to categories of modules.

    have added to Brauer group a paragraph (here) on its “bigger” version (thanks toDavid C. for the pointer to Heinloth’s article)


    It is therefore natural to regard all of H et 2(R,𝔾 m)H^2_{et}(R, \mathbb{G}_m) as the “actual” Brauer group. This has been called the “bigger Brauer group” (Taylor 82, Caenepeel-Grandjean 98, Heinloth-Schöer 08). the bigger Brauer group has actually traditionally been implicit already in the term “formal Brauer group”, which is really the formal geometry-version of the bigger Brauer group.

    Have added at the references at Brauer group:

    The observation that passing to derived algebraic geometry makes also the non-torsion elements in H et 2(,𝔾 m)H^2_{et}(-,\mathbb{G}_m) be represented by (derived) Azumaya algebras is due to
