    In the Idea section of Zariski site, I included a little patch which includes the little site notion, as well as the big site.

    Added to Zariski site an explicit presentation of the Kripke–Joyal semantics of the big and little Zariski toposes.

    At Zariski site, there was a remark that the canonical morphisms SpecA[S 1]SpecASpec A[S^{-1}] \to Spec A are always open immersions. This is false, as can be deduced from a MathOverflow discussion. I corrected the article; luckily, the rest of the article didn’t depend on the wrong statement.

    Furthermore, I believe that such a morphism is an open immersion if and only if localizing away from SS is the same as localizing away from a certain single element. I might add this observation somewhere as well.

    Edit: The purported proof goes like this. The second criterion stated at the MathOverflow page says that SpecA[S 1]SpecASpec A[S^{-1}] \to Spec A is an open immersion if and only if the extension of the ideal T={fA|A[f 1]A[S 1,f 1] is an isomorphism}AT = \{ f \in A | A[f^{-1}] \to A[S^{-1},f^{-1}] \text{ is an isomorphism} \} \subseteq A in A[S 1]A[S^{-1}] is the unit ideal. A short calculation shows that T= sS(s)T = \bigcap_{s \in S} \sqrt{(s)}. Therefore (T)=(1)(T) = (1) as ideals of A[S 1]A[S^{-1}] if and only if TST \cap S \neq \emptyset, i.e. if and only if there exists an element s 0Ss_0 \in S such that localizing away from s 0s_0 is the same as localizing away from SS.

    Presumably also the same if SS is finite.

  1. Added a short remark that sheafification does not change the set of sections over local rings.

    David: Indeed; but localizing away from a finite set of elements is the same as localizing away from their product, so this is not yet a counterexample.

    Ingo - I was thinking more in terms of finite intersections of opens are open, rather than algebraic properties of localisations. And conversely, there’s little reason to assume in general that infinite intersections of opens (one for each element of SS) are open.
