1 Deformations of gerbes on smooth manifolds Paul Bressler, Alexander Gorokhovsky, Ryszard Nest, Boris Tsygan Abstract. We identify the 2-groupoid of deformations of a gerbe on a C manifold with the Deligne 2-groupoid of a corresponding twist of the DGLA of local Hochschild cochains on C functions. Mathematics Subject Classification (2000). Primary 53D55; Secondary 58J42, 18D05. Keywords. Deformation, gerbe, algebroid. 1. Introduction In [5] we obtained a classification of formal deformations of a gerbe on a manifold (C or complex-analytic) in terms of Maurer-Cartan elements of the DGLA of Hochschild cochains twisted by the cohomology class of the gerbe. In the present paper we develop a different approach to the derivation of this classification in the setting of C manifolds, based on the differential-geometric approach of [4]. The main result of the present paper is the following theorem which we prove in Section 8. Theorem 1. Suppose that X is a C manifold and S is an algebroid stack on X which is a twisted form of O X. Then, there is an equivalence of 2-groupoid valued functors of commutative Artin C-algebras Def X (S) = MC 2 (g DR (J X ) [S] ). Notations in the statement of Theorem 1 and the rest of the paper are as follows. We consider a paracompact C -manifold X with the structure sheaf O X of complex valued smooth functions. Let S be a twisted form of O X, as defined in Section 4.5. Twisted forms of O X are in bijective correspondence with O X -gerbes and are classified up to equivalence by H 2 (X; O ) = H 3 (X; Z). One can formulate the formal deformation theory of algebroid stacks ([17, 16]) which leads to the 2-groupoid valued functor Def X (S) of commutative Artin C- algebras. We discuss deformations of algebroid stacks in the Section 6. It is natural Supported by the Ellentuck Fund Partially supported by NSF grant DMS Partially supported by NSF grant DMS

2 2 P. Bressler, A. Gorokhovsky, R. Nest, B. Tsygan to expect that the deformation theory of algebroid pre-stacks is controlled by a suitably constructed differential graded Lie algebra (DGLA) well-defined up to isomorphism in the derived category of DGLA. The content of Theorem 1 can be stated as the existence of such a DGLA, namely g(j X ) [S], which controls the formal deformation theory of the algebroid stack S in the following sense. To a nilpotent DGLA g which satisfies g i = 0 for i < 1 one can associate its Deligne 2-groupoid which we denote MC 2 (g), see [11, 10] and references therein. We review this construction in the Section 3. Then the Theorem 1 asserts equivalence of 2-groupoids Def X (S) and MC 2 (g DR (J X ) [S] ). The DGLA g(j X ) [S] is defined as the [S]-twist of the DGLA g DR (J X ) := Γ(X; DR(C (J X ))[1]). Here, J X is the sheaf of infinite jets of functions on X, considered as a sheaf of topological O X -algebras with the canonical flat connection can. The shifted normalized Hochschild complex C (J X )[1] is understood to comprise locally defined O X -linear continuous Hochschild cochains. It is a sheaf of DGLA under the Gerstenhaber bracket and the Hochschild differential δ. The canonical flat connection on J X induces one, also denoted can, on C (J X ))[1]. The flat connection can commutes with the differential δ and acts by derivations of the Gerstenhaber bracket. Therefore, the de Rham complex DR(C (J X ))[1]) := Ω X C (J X ))[1]) equipped with the differential can + δ and the Lie bracket induced by the Gerstenhaber bracket is a sheaf of DGLA on X giving rise to the DGLA g(j X ) of global sections. The sheaf of abelian Lie algebras J X /O X acts by derivations of degree 1 on the graded Lie algebra C (J X )[1] via the adjoint action. Moreover, this action commutes with the Hochschild differential. Therefore, the (abelian) graded Lie algebra Ω X J X/O X acts by derivations on the graded Lie algebra Ω X C (J X ))[1]. We denote the action of the form ω Ω X J X/O X by ι ω. Consider now the subsheaf of closed forms (Ω X J X/O X ) cl which is by definition the kernel of can. (Ω k X J X/O X ) cl acts by derivations of degree k 1 and this action commutes with the differential can + δ. Therefore, for ω Γ(X; (Ω 2 J X /O X ) cl ) one can define the ω-twist g(j X ) ω as the DGLA with the same underlying graded Lie algebra structure as g(j X ) and the differential given by can + δ + ι ω. The isomorphism class of this DGLA depends only on the cohomology class of ω in H 2 (Γ(X; Ω X J X/O X ), can ). More precisely, for β Γ(X; Ω 1 X J X/O X ) the DGLA g DR (J X ) ω and g DR (J X ) ω+ can β are canonically isomorphic with the isomorphism depending only on the equivalence class β + Im( can ). As we remarked before a twisted form S of O X is determined up to equivalence by its class in H 2 (X; O ). The composition O O /C O/C j DR(J /O) induces the map H 2 (X; O ) H 2 (X; DR(J /O)) = H 2 (Γ(X; Ω X J X /O X ), can ). We denote by [S] H 2 (Γ(X; Ω X J X/O X ), can ) the image of the class of S. By the remarks above we have the well-defined up to a canonical isomorphism DGLA g DR (J X ) [S]. log

3 Deformations of gerbes 3 The rest of this paper is organized as follows. In the Section 2 we review some preliminary facts. In the Section 3 we review the construction of Deligne 2- groupoid, its relation with the deformation theory and its cosimplicial analogues. In the Section 4 we review the notion of algebroid stacks. Next we define matrix algebras associated with a descent datum in the Section 5. In the Section 6 we define the deformations of algebroid stacks and relate them to the cosimplicial DGLA of Hochschild cochains on matrix algebras. In the Section 7 we establish quasiisomorphism of the DGLA controlling the deformations of twisted forms of O X with a simpler cosimplicial DGLA. Finally, the proof the main result of this paper, Theorem 1, is given in the Section 8 2. Preliminaries 2.1. Simplicial notions The category of simplices. For n = 0, 1, 2,... we denote by [n] the category with objects 0,..., n freely generated by the graph 0 1 n. For 0 p q n we denote by (pq) the unique morphism p q. We denote by the full subcategory of Cat with objects the categories [n] for n = 0, 1, 2,.... For 0 i n + 1 we denote by i = i n : [n] [n + 1] the i th face map, i.e. the unique map whose image does not contain the object i [n + 1]. For 0 i n 1 we denote by s i = s n i : [n] [n 1] the ith degeneracy map, i.e. the unique surjective map such that s i (i) = s i (i + 1) Simplicial and cosimplicial objects. Suppose that C is a category. By definition, a simplicial object in C (respectively, a cosimplicial object in C) is a functor op C (respectively, a functor C). Morphisms of (co)simplicial objects are natural transformations of functors. For a simplicial (respectively, cosimplicial) object F we denote the object F ([n]) C by F n (respectively, F n ) Cosimplicial vector spaces. Let V be a cosimplicial vector space. We denote by C (V ) the associated complex with component C n (V ) = V n and the differential n : C n (V ) C n+1 (V ) defined by n = i ( 1)i i n, where n i is the map induced by the i th face map [n] [n + 1]. We denote cohomology of this complex by H (V ). The complex C (V ) contains a normalized subcomplex C (V ). Here C n (V ) = {V V n s n i v = 0}, where sn i : [n] [n 1] is the i th degeneracy map. Recall that the inclusion C (V ) C (V ) is a quasiisomorphism.

4 4 P. Bressler, A. Gorokhovsky, R. Nest, B. Tsygan Starting from a cosimplicial vector space V one can construct a new cosimplicial vector space V as follows. For every λ : [n] set V λ = V λ(n). Suppose given another simplex µ : [m] and morphism φ : [m] [n] such that µ = λ φ i.e. φ is a morphism of simplices µ λ. The morphism (0n) factors uniquely into 0 φ(0) φ(m) n, which, under λ, gives the factorization of λ(0n) : λ(0) λ(n) (in ) into λ(0) f µ(0) g µ(m) where g = µ(0m). The map µ(m) λ(n) induces the map h λ(n), (2.1) φ : V µ V λ (2.2) Set now V n = V λ. The maps (2.2) endow V with the structure of a [n] λ cosimplicial vector space. We then have the following well-known result: Lemma 2.1. H (V ) = H ( V ) (2.3) Proof. We construct morphisms of complexes inducing the isomorphisms in cohomology. We will use the following notations. If f V n and λ : [n] we will denote by f(λ) V λ its component in V λ. For λ : [n] we denote by λ [jl] : [l j] its truncation: λ [jl] (i) = λ(i + j), λ [jl] (i, k) = λ((i + j) (k + j)). For λ 1 : [n 1 ] and λ 2 : [n 2 ] with λ 1 (n 1 ) = λ 2 (0) define their concatenation Λ = λ 1 λ 2 : [n 1 + n 2 ] by the following formulas. { λ 1 (i) if i n 1 Λ(i) = λ 2 (i n 1 ) if i n 1 λ 1 (ik) if i, k n 1 Λ(ik) = λ 2 ((i n 1 ) (k n 1 )) if i, k n 1 λ 2 (0 (k n 1 )) λ(in 1 ) if i n 1 k This operation is associative. Finally we will identify in our notations λ : [1] with the morphism λ(01) in The morphism C (V ) C ( V ) is constructed as follows. Let λ : [n] be a simplex in and define λ k by λ(k) = [λ k ], k = 0, 1,..., n. Let Υ(λ) : [n] λ(n) be a morphism in defined by Then define the map ι : V V by the formula (Υ(λ))(k) = λ(kn)(λ k ) (2.4) (ι(v))(λ) = Υ(λ) v for v V n This is a map of cosimplicial vector spaces, and therefore it induces a morphism of complexes.

5 Deformations of gerbes 5 The morphism π : C ( V ) C (V ) is defined by the formula π(f) = ( 1) n(n+1) 2 0 i k k+1 ( 1) i0+ +in 1 f( i 0 0 i n 1 i n 1 ) for f V n when n > 0, and π(f) is V 0 component of f if n = 0. The morphism ι π is homotopic to Id with the homotopy h : C ( V ) C 1 ( V ) given by the formula hf(λ) = n 1 j=0 0 i k k+1 ( 1) i0+ +ij 1 f( i 0 0 j 1 i j 1 Υ(λ [0j] ) λ [j (n 1)] ) for f V n when n > 0, and h(f) = 0 if n = 0. The composition π ι : C (V ) C (V ) preserves the normalized subcomplex C (V ) and acts by identity on it. Therefore π ι induces the identity map on cohomology. It follows that π and ι are quasiisomorphisms inverse to each other Covers. A cover (open cover) of a space X is a collection U of open subsets of X such that U U U = X The nerve of a cover. Let N 0 U = U U U. There is a canonical augmentation map U U ɛ 0 : N 0 U (U X) X Let N p U = N 0 U X X N 0 U, the (p + 1)-fold fiber product. The assignment NU : [p] N p U extends to a simplicial space called the nerve of the cover U. The effect of the face map i n (respectively, the degeneracy map s n i ) will be denoted by di = d i n (respectively, ς i = ςi n ) and is given by the projection along the i th factor (respectively, the diagonal embedding on the i th factor). Therefore for every morphism f : [p] [q] in we have a morphism N q U N p U which we denote by f. We will denote by f the operation (f ) of pull-back along f ; if F is a sheaf on N p U then f F is a sheaf on N q U. For 0 i n + 1 we denote by pr n i : N nu N 0 U the projection onto the i th factor. For 0 j m, 0 i j n the map pr i0 pr im : N n U (N 0 U) m can be factored uniquely as a composition of a map N n U N m U and the canonical imbedding N m U (N 0 U) m. We denote this map N n U N m U by pr n i 0...i m. The augmentation map ɛ 0 extends to a morphism ɛ : NU X where the latter is regarded as a constant simplicial space. Its component of degree n ɛ n : N n U X is given by the formula ɛ n = ɛ 0 pr n i. Here 0 i n + 1 is arbitrary.

6 6 P. Bressler, A. Gorokhovsky, R. Nest, B. Tsygan Čech complex. Let F be a sheaf of abelian groups on X. One defines a cosimplicial group Č (U, F) = Γ(N U; ɛ F), with the cosimplicial structure induced by the simplicial structure of NU. The associated complex is the Čech complex of the cover U with coefficients in F. The differential ˇ in this complex is given by ( 1) i (d i ) Refinement. Suppose that U and V are two covers of X. A morphism of covers ρ : U V is a map of sets ρ : U V with the property U ρ(u) for all U U. A morphism ρ : U V induces the map Nρ : NU NV of simplicial spaces which commutes with respective augmentations to X. The map N 0 ρ is determined by the commutativity of U N 0 U N 0ρ ρ(u) N 0 V It is clear that the map N 0 ρ commutes with the respective augmentations (i.e. is a map of spaces over X) and, consequently induces maps N n ρ = (N 0 ρ) X n+1 which commute with all structure maps The category of covers. Let Cov(X) 0 denote the set of open covers of X. For U, V Cov(X) 0 we denote by Cov(X) 1 (U, V) the set of morphisms U V. Let Cov(X) denote the category with objects Cov(X) 0 and morphisms Cov(X) 1. The construction of is a functor N : Cov(X) Top op /X. 3. Deligne 2-groupoid and its cosimplicial analogues In this section we begin by recalling the definition of Deligne 2-groupoid and its relation with the deformation theory. We then describe the cosimplicial analogues of Deligne 2-groupoids and establish some of their properties Deligne 2-groupoid. In this subsection we review the construction of Deligne 2-groupoid of a nilpotent differential graded algebra (DGLA). We follow [11, 10] and references therein. Suppose that g is a nilpotent DGLA such that g i = 0 for i < 1. A Maurer-Cartan element of g is an element γ g 1 satisfying dγ + 1 [γ, γ] = 0. (3.1) 2 We denote by MC 2 (g) 0 the set of Maurer-Cartan elements of g.

7 Deformations of gerbes 7 The unipotent group exp g 0 acts on the set of Maurer-Cartan elements of g by the gauge equivalences. This action is given by the formula (exp X) γ = γ i=0 (ad X) i (dx + [γ, X]) (i + 1)! If exp X is a gauge equivalence between two Maurer-Cartan elements γ 1 and γ 2 = (exp X) γ 1 then d + ad γ 2 = Ad exp X (d + ad γ 1 ). (3.2) We denote by MC 2 (g) 1 (γ 1, γ 2 ) the set of gauge equivalences between γ 1, γ 2. The composition MC 2 (g) 1 (γ 2, γ 3 ) MC 2 (g) 1 (γ 1, γ 2 ) MC 2 (g) 1 (γ 1, γ 3 ) is given by the product in the group exp g 0. If γ MC 2 (g) 0 we can define a Lie bracket [, ] γ on g 1 by [a, b] γ = [a, db + [γ, b]]. (3.3) With this bracket g 1 becomes a nilpotent Lie algebra. We denote by exp γ g 1 the corresponding unipotent group, and by exp γ the corresponding exponential map g 1 exp γ g 1. If γ 1, γ 2 are two Maurer-Cartan elements, then the group exp γ g 1 acts on MC 2 (g) 1 (γ 1, γ 2 ). Let exp γ t exp γ g 1 and let exp X MC 2 (g) 1 (γ 1, γ 2 ). Then (exp γ t) (exp X) = exp(dt + [γ, t]) expx exp g 0 Such an element exp γ t is called a 2-morphism between exp X and (exp t) (exp X). We denote by MC 2 (g) 2 (exp X, exp Y ) the set of 2-morphisms between exp X and exp Y. This set is endowed with a vertical composition given by the product in the group exp γ g 1. Let γ 1, γ 2, γ 3 MC 2 (g) 0. Let exp X 12, exp Y 12 MC 2 (g) 1 (γ 1, γ 2 ) and exp X 23, exp Y 23 MC 2 (g) 1 (γ 2, γ 3 ). Then one defines the horizontal composition : MC 2 (g) 2 (exp X 23, exp Y 23 ) MC 2 (g) 2 (exp X 12, exp Y 12 ) MC 2 (g) 2 (exp X 23 exp X 12, exp X 23 exp Y 12 ) as follows. Let exp γ2 t 12 MC 2 (g) 2 (exp X 12, exp Y 12 ), exp γ3 t 23 MC 2 (g) 2 (exp X 23, exp Y 23 ). Then exp γ3 t 23 exp γ2 t 12 = exp γ3 t 23 exp γ3 (e ad X23 (t 12 )) To summarize, the data described above forms a 2-groupoid which we denote by MC 2 (g) as follows: 1. the set of objects is MC 2 (g) 0 2. the groupoid of morphisms MC 2 (g)(γ 1, γ 2 ), γ i MC 2 (g) 0 consists of:

8 8 P. Bressler, A. Gorokhovsky, R. Nest, B. Tsygan objects i.e. 1-morphisms in MC 2 (g) are given by MC 2 (g) 1 (γ 1, γ 2 ) the gauge transformations between γ 1 and γ 2. morphisms between exp X, exp Y MC 2 (g) 1 (γ 1, γ 2 ) are given by MC 2 (g) 2 (exp X, exp Y ). A morphism of nilpotent DGLA φ : g h induces a functor φ : MC 2 (g) MC 2 (g). We have the following important result ([12], [11] and references therein). Theorem 3.1. Suppose that φ : g h is a quasi-isomorphism of DGLA and let m be a nilpotent commutative ring. Then the induced map φ : MC 2 (g m) MC 2 (h m) is an equivalence of 2-groupoids Deformations and Deligne 2-groupoid. Let k be an algebraically closed field of characteristic zero Hochschild cochains. Suppose that A is a k-vector space. The k-vector space C n (A) of Hochschild cochains of degree n 0 is defined by C n (A) := Hom k (A n, A). The graded vector space g(a) := C (A)[1] has a canonical structure of a graded Lie algebra under the Gerstenhaber bracket denoted by [, ] below. Namely, C (A)[1] is canonically isomorphic to the (graded) Lie algebra of derivations of the free associative co-algebra generated by A[1]. Suppose in addition that A is equipped with a bilinear operation µ : A A A, i.e. µ C 2 (A) = g 1 (A). The condition [µ, µ] = 0 is equivalent to the associativity of µ. Suppose that A is an associative k-algebra with the product µ. For a g(a) let δ(a) = [µ, a]. Thus, δ is a derivation of the graded Lie algebra g(a). The associativity of µ implies that δ 2 = 0, i.e. δ defines a differential on g(a) called the Hochschild differential. For a unital algebra the subspace of normalized cochains C n (A) C n (A) is defined by C n (A) := Hom k ((A/k 1) n, A). The subspace C (A)[1] is closed under the Gerstenhaber bracket and the action of the Hochschild differential and the inclusion C (A)[1] C (A)[1] is a quasiisomorphism of DGLA. Suppose in addition that R is a commutative Artin k-algebra with the nilpotent maximal ideal m R The DGLA g(a) k m R is nilpotent and satisfies g i (A) k m R = 0 for i < 1. Therefore, the Deligne 2-groupoid MC 2 (g(a) k m R ) is defined. Moreover, it is clear that the assignment R MC 2 (g(a) k m R ) extends to a functor on the category of commutative Artin algebras.

9 Deformations of gerbes Star products. Suppose that A is an associative unital k-algebra. Let m denote the product on A. Let R be a commutative Artin k-algebra with maximal ideal m R. There is a canonical isomorphism R/m R = k. A (R-)star product on A is an associative R-bilinear product on A k R such that the canonical isomorphism of k-vector spaces (A k R) R k = A is an isomorphism of algebras. Thus, a star product is an R-deformation of A. The 2-category of R-star products on A, denoted Def(A)(R), is defined as the subcategory of the 2-category Alg 2 R of R-algebras (see 4.1.1) with Objects: R-star products on A, 1-morphisms φ : m 1 m 2 between the star products µ i those R-algebra homomorphisms φ : (A k R, m 1 ) (A k R, m 2 ) which reduce to the identity map modulo m R, i.e. φ R k = Id A 2-morphisms b : φ ψ, where φ, ψ : m 1 m 2 are two 1-morphisms, are elements b 1 + A k m R A k R such that m 2 (φ(a), b) = m 2 (b, ψ(a)) for all a A k R. It follows easily from the above definition and the nilpotency of m R that Def(A)(R) is a 2-groupoid. Note that Def(A)(R) is non-empty: it contains the trivial deformation, i.e. the star product, still denoted m, which is the R-bilinear extension of the product on A. It is clear that the assignment R Def(A)(R) extends to a functor on the category of commutative Artin k-algebras Star products and the Deligne 2-groupoid. We continue in notations introduced above. In particular, we are considering an associative unital k-algebra A. The product m C 2 (A) determines a cochain, still denoted m g 1 (A) k R, hence the Hochschild differential δ = [m, ] in g(a) k R for any commutative Artin k-algebra R. Suppose that m is an R-star product on A. Since µ(m ) := m m = 0 mod m R we have µ(m ) g 1 (A) k m R. Moreover, the associativity of m implies that µ(m ) satisfies the Maurer-Cartan equation, i.e. µ(m ) MC 2 (g(a) k m R ) 0. It is easy to see that the assignment m µ(m ) extends to a functor Def(A)(R) MC 2 (g(a) k m R ). (3.4) The following proposition is well-known (cf. [9, 11, 10]). Proposition 3.2. The functor (3.4) is an isomorphism of 2-groupoids Star products on sheaves of algebras. The above considerations generalize to sheaves of algebras in a straightforward way. Suppose that A is a sheaf of k-algebras on a space X. Let m : A k A A denote the product.

10 10 P. Bressler, A. Gorokhovsky, R. Nest, B. Tsygan An R-star product on A is a structure of a sheaf of an associative algebras on A k R which reduces to µ modulo the maximal ideal m R. The 2-category (groupoid) of R star products on A, denoted Def(A)(R) is defined just as in the case of algebras; we leave the details to the reader. The sheaf of Hochschild cochains of degree n is defined by C n (A) := Hom(A n, A). We have the sheaf of DGLA g(a) := C (A)[1], hence the nilpotent DGLA Γ(X; g(a) k m R ) for every commutative Artin k-algebra R concentrated in degrees 1. Therefore, the 2-groupoid MC 2 (Γ(X; g(a) k m R ) is defined. The canonical functor Def(A)(R) MC 2 (Γ(X; g(a) k m R ) defined just as in the case of algebras is an isomorphism of 2-groupoids G-stacks. Suppose that G: [n] G n is a cosimplicial DGLA. We assume that each G n is a nilpotent DGLA. We denote its component of degree i by G n,i and assume that G n,i = 0 for i < 1. Definition 3.3. A G-stack is a triple γ = (γ 0, γ 1, γ 2 ), where γ 0 MC 2 (G 0 ) 0, γ 1 MC 2 (G 1 ) 1 ( 0 0γ 0, 0 1γ 0 ), satisfying the condition s 1 0γ 1 = Id γ 2 MC 2 (G 2 ) 2 ( 1 2(γ 1 ) 1 0(γ 1 ), 1 1(γ 1 )) satisfying the conditions 2 2γ 2 (Id 2 0γ 2 ) = 2 1γ 2 ( 2 3γ 2 Id) s 2 0γ 2 = s 2 1γ 2 = Id (3.5) Let Stack(G) 0 denote the set of G-stacks.

11 Deformations of gerbes 11 Let Stack(G) 2 ג, 1 ג) 2 ) denote the set of 2-morphisms. Compositions of 2-morphisms are given by the compositions in MC 2 (G 0 ) 2. For γ 1, γ 2 Stack(G) 0, we have the groupoid Stack(G)(γ 1, γ 2 ) with the set of objects Stack(G) 1 (γ 1, γ 2 ) and the set of morphisms Stack(G) 2 ג, 1 ג) 2 ) under vertical composition. Every morphism θ of cosimplicial DGLA induces in an obvious manner a functor θ : Stack(G m) Stack(H m) We have the following cosimplicial analogue of the Theorem 3.1: Theorem 3.6. Suppose that θ : G H is a quasi-isomorphism of cosimplicial DGLA and m is a commutative nilpotent ring. Then the induced map θ : Stack(G m) Stack(H m) is an equivalence. Proof. The proof can be obtained by applying the Theorem 3.1 repeatedly. Let γ 1, γ 2 Stack(G m) 0, and let ג, 1 ג 2 be two 1-morphisms between γ 1 and γ 2. Note that by the Theorem 3.1 θ : MC 2 (G 0 m) 2 1 ג 1, 1 ג) 2) MC 2 (H 0 ) 2 ג, 1 ג) m) 2 2) is a bijection. Injectivity of the map θ : Stack(G 1 ג θ 1, 1 ג (θ m) 2 Stack(H m) 2 (θ ג 1, θ ג 2 ) follows immediately. For the surjectivity, notice that an element of Stack(H m) 2 (θ ג 1, θ ג 2 ) is necessarily given by θ φ for some φ MC 2 (G 0 2) 1 ג 1, 1 ג)( m 2 and the following identity is satisfied in MC 2 (H 1 m)(θ (γ ). Since θ : MC 2 (G 1 2 ג ( Id 1φ )) 2 ( 0φ Id)) 1 = θ 2 ג) θ 2 γ1)) 1 2 : 0 1 ג 1 ) θ 1), 0 1 ג 0 m)(γ ג 1 1, 0 1 ג 0 2 γ1) 1 2 MC 2 (H 1 m)(θ (γ ג 0 1), θ 0 1 ג 1 ) 2 γ1)) 1 2 is bijective, and in particular injective, 2 2 ג ( 0φ 1 Id) = (Id 1φ) 1 2 ג 1, and φ defines an ). 2 ג, 1 ג) m) 2 element in Stack(G Next, let γ 1, γ 2 Stack(G m) 0, and let ג be a 1-morphisms between θ γ 1 and θ γ 2. We show that there exists ℸ Stack(G m) 1 (γ 1, γ 2 ) such that θ ℸ is isomorphic to.ג Indeed, by Theorem 3.1, there exists ℸ 1 MC 2 (G 0 m) 1 (γ 1, γ 2 ) such that MC 2 (H 0 m) 2 (θ ℸ 1, (ג. Let φ MC 2 (H 0 m) 2 (θ ℸ 1,.(ג Define ψ MC 2 (H 1 m) 2 (θ (γ2 1 0ℸ 0 1 ), θ ( 1ℸ 0 1 γ1)) 1 by ψ = ( 1φ Id) 0 1 ג 2 (Id 0φ). 0 It is easy to verify that the following identities holds: (Id θ γ 2 1) ( 1 2ψ Id) (Id 1 0ψ) = 1 1ψ (θ γ 2 2 Id) s 1 0ψ = Id By bijectivity of θ on MC 2 there exists a unique ℸ 2 MC 2 (H 1 m) 2 (γ2 1 0ℸ 0 1, 1ℸ 0 1 γ1) 1 such that θ ℸ 2 = ψ. Moreover, as before, injectivity of θ implies that the conditions (3.6) are satisfied. Therefore ℸ = (ℸ 1, ℸ 2 ) defines a 1-morphism.ג ℸ γ 1 γ 2 and φ is a 2-morphism θ Now, let γ Stack(H m) 0. We construct λ Stack(G m) 0 such that Stack(H m) 1 (θ λ, γ). Indeed, by the Theorem 3.1 there exists λ 0 MC 2 (G 0 m) 0 such that MC 2 (H 0 m) 1 (θ λ 0, γ 0 ). Let ג 1 MC 2 (H 0 m) 1 (θ λ, γ). Applying Theorem 3.1 again we obtain that there exists µ MC 2 (G 1 m) 1 ( 0λ 0 0, 1λ 0 0 ) such that there exists φ MC 2 (H 1 m) 2 (γ 1 0 ג 1, 1 0 ג 0 1 θ µ). Then s 1 0φ is then a 2-morphism ג 1 ג 1 (s 1 0µ), which induces a 2-morphism ψ : (s 1 0µ) 1 Id. Set now λ 1 = µ ( 0(s 0 1 0µ)) 1 MC 2 (G 1 m) 1 ( 0λ 0 0, 1λ 0 0 ), ג 2 = φ ( 0ψ) 0 1 MC 2 (H 1 m) 2 (γ 1 0 ג 1, 1 0 ג 0 1 θ λ 1 ). It is easy to see that s 1 0λ 1 = Id, ג 0 s 1 2 = Id.

12 12 P. Bressler, A. Gorokhovsky, R. Nest, B. Tsygan We then conclude that there exists a unique λ 2 such that (Id θ λ 2 ) ג 2 ( 1 2 Id) (Id ג 1 1 = ) 2 ג (γ 2 Id). Such a λ 2 necessarily satisfies the conditions 2 2λ 2 (Id 2 0λ 2 ) = 2 1λ 2 ( 2 3λ 2 Id). s 2 0λ 2 = s 2 1λ 2 = Id Therefore λ = (λ 0, λ 1, λ 2 ) Stack(G m), and ג, 1 ג) = ג 2 ) defines a 1-morphism θ λ γ Acyclicity and strictness. Definition 3.7. A G-stack (γ 0, γ 1, γ 2 ) is called strict if 0 0γ 0 = 0 1γ 0, γ 1 = Id and γ 2 = Id. Let Stack Str (G) 0 denote the subset of strict G-stacks. Lemma 3.8. Stack Str (G) 0 = MC 2 (ker(g 0 G 1 )) 0 Definition 3.9. For γ 1, γ 2 Stack Str (G) 0 a 1-morphism ג, 1 ג) = ג 2 ) Stack(G) 1 (γ 1, γ 2 ) is called strict if 0 ג) 1 0 = ) 1 ג) 0 1 ) and ג 2 = Id. For γ 1, γ 2 Stack Str (G) 0 we denote by Stack Str (G) 1 (γ 1, γ 2 ) the subset of strict morphisms. Lemma For γ 1, γ 2 Stack Str (G) 0 Stack Str (G) 1 (γ 1, γ 2 ) = MC 2 (ker(g 0 G 1 )) 1 For γ 1, γ 2 Stack Str (G) 0 let Stack Str (G)(γ 1, γ 2 ) denote the full subcategory of Stack(G)(γ 1, γ 2 ) with objects Stack Str (G) 1 (γ 1, γ 2 ). Thus, we have the 2-groupoids Stack(G) and Stack Str (G) and an embedding of the latter into the former which is fully faithful on the respective groupoids of 1-morphisms. Lemma Stack Str (G) = MC 2 (ker(g 0 G 1 )) Suppose that G is a cosimplicial DGLA. For each n and i we have the vector space G n,i, namely the degree i component of G n. The assignment n G n,i is a cosimplicial vector space G,i. We will be considering the following acyclicity condition on the cosimplicial DGLA G: for all i Z, H p (G,i ) = 0 for p 0 (3.8) Theorem Suppose that G is a cosimplicial DGLA which satisfies the condition (3.8), and m a commutative nilpotent ring. Then, the functor ι : Stack Str (G m) Stack(G m)) is an equivalence.

13 Deformations of gerbes 13 Proof. As we noted before, it is immediate from the definitions that if γ 1, γ 2 Stack Str (G m) 0, and ג, 1 ג 2 Stack Str (G m) 1 (γ 1, γ 2 ), then ι : Stack Str (G m) 2 ג, 1 ג) 2 ) Stack Str (G m) 2 ג, 1 ג) 2 ) is a bijection. Suppose now that γ 1, γ 2 Stack Str (G m) 0, ג, 1 ג) = ג 2 ) Stack(G m) 1 (γ 1, γ 2 ). ג : φ We show that then there exists ℸ Stack Str (G) 1 (γ 1, γ 2 ) and a 2-morphism ℸ. Let ג 2 = exp 0 0 γ 0 2 g, g (G1 m). Then 1 0g 1 1g + 1 2g = 0 mod m 2. By the acyclicity condition there exists a (G 0 m) such that 0 0a 0 1a = g mod m 2. Set φ 1 = exp γ 0 2 a. Define then ℸ 1 = (φ 1 ( 0, 1 ג 1φ 1 Id) ג 2 (Id 0 0φ 1 ) 1 ) Stack(G m) 1 (γ 1, γ 2 ). Note that φ 1 defines a 2-morphism ג ℸ 1. Note also that ℸ 2 1 exp 0 0 γ 0 2 (G m2 ). Proceeding inductively one constructs a sequence ℸ k Stack(G m) 1 (γ 1, γ 2 ) such that ℸ 2 k exp(g mk+1 ) and 2-morphisms φ k : ג ℸ k, φ k+1 = φ k mod m k. Since m is nilpotent, for k large enough ℸ k Stack Str (G) 1 (γ 1, γ 2 ). Assume now that γ Stack(G m) 0. We will construct λ Stack Str (G m) 0 and a 1-morphism ג : γ λ. We begin by constructing µ Stack(G m) 0 such that µ 2 = Id and a 1- morphism ℸ : γ λ. We have: γ 2 = exp γ0 c, c (G2 m). In view of the equations (3.5) c satisfies the following identities: 2 0c 2 1c + 2 2c 2 3c = 0 mod m 2 s 2 0c = s 2 1c = 0 (3.9) By the acyclicity of the normalized complex we can find b G 1 m such that 0b 1 1b 1 + 2b 1 = c mod m 2, s 1 0b = 0. Let φ 1 = exp 0 1 γ0( b). Define then µ 1 = (µ 0 1, µ 1 1, µ 2 1) where µ 0 1 = γ 0, µ 1 1 = φ 1 γ 1, and µ 2 1 is such that (Id γ 2 ) ( 1 2φ 1 Id) (Id 1 0φ 1 ) = 1 1φ 1 (µ 2 1 Id) Note that µ 2 1 = Id mod m 2 and (Id, φ 1 ) is a 1-morphism γ µ 1. As before we can construct a sequence µ k such that µ 2 k = Id mod mk+1, and 1-morphisms (Id, φ k ) : γ µ k, φ k+1 = φ k mod m k. As before we conclude that this gives the desired construction of µ. The rest of the proof, i.e. the construction of λ is completely analogous. Corollary Suppose that G is a cosimplicial DGLA which satisfies the condition (3.8). Then there is a canonical equivalence: Stack(G m) = MC 2 (ker(g 0 G 1 ) m) Proof. Combine Lemma 3.11 with Theorem Algebroid stacks In this section we review the notions of algebroid stack and twisted form. We also define the notion of descent datum and relate it with algebroid stacks.

14 14 P. Bressler, A. Gorokhovsky, R. Nest, B. Tsygan 4.1. Algebroids and algebroid stacks Algebroids. For a category C we denote by ic the subcategory of isomorphisms in C; equivalently, ic is the maximal subgroupoid in C. Suppose that R is a commutative k-algebra. Definition 4.1. An R-algebroid is a nonempty R-linear category C such that the groupoid ic is connected Let Algd R denote the 2-category of R-algebroids (full 2-subcategory of the 2-category of R-linear categories). Suppose that A is an R-algebra. The R-linear category with one object and morphisms A is an R-algebroid denoted A +. Suppose that C is an R-algebroid and L is an object of C. Let A = End C (L). The functor A + C which sends the unique object of A + to L is an equivalence. Let Alg 2 R denote the 2-category of with objects R-algebras 1-morphisms homomorphism of R-algebras 2-morphisms φ ψ, where φ, ψ : A B are two 1-morphisms are elements b B such that φ(a) b = b ψ(a) for all a A. It is clear that the 1- and the 2- morphisms in Alg 2 R as defined above induce 1- and 2-morphisms of the corresponding algebroids under the assignment A A +. The structure of a 2-category on Alg 2 R (i.e. composition of 1- and 2- morphisms) is determined by the requirement that the assignment A A + extends to an embedding ( ) + : Alg 2 R Algd R. Suppose that R S is a morphism of commutative k-algebras. The assignment A A R S extends to a functor ( ) R S : Alg 2 R Alg 2 S Algebroid stacks. We refer the reader to [1] and [20] for basic definitions. We will use the notion of fibered category interchangeably with that of a pseudofunctor. A prestack C on a space X is a category fibered over the category of open subsets of X, equivalently, a pseudo-functor U C(U), satisfying the following additional requirement. For an open subset U of X and two objects A, B C(U) we have the presheaf Hom C (A, B) on U defined by U V Hom C(V ) (A V, B B ). The fibered category C is a prestack if for any U, A, B C(U), the presheaf Hom C (A, B) is a sheaf. A prestack is a stack if, in addition, it satisfies the condition of effective descent for objects. For a prestack C we denote the associated stack by C. Definition 4.2. A stack in R-linear categories C on X is an R-algebroid stack if it is locally nonempty and locally connected, i.e. satisfies 1. any point x X has a neighborhood U such that C(U) is nonempty; 2. for any U X, x U, A, B C(U) there exits a neighborhood V U of x and an isomorphism A V = B V.

15 Deformations of gerbes 15 Remark 4.3. Equivalently, the stack associated to the substack of isomorphisms ic is a gerbe. Example 4.4. Suppose that A is a sheaf of R-algebras on X. The assignment X U A(U) + extends in an obvious way to a prestack in R-algebroids denoted A +. The associated stack Ã+ is canonically equivalent to the stack of locally free A op -modules of rank one. The canonical morphism A + Ã+ sends the unique (locally defined) object of A + to the free module of rank one. 1-morphisms and 2-morphisms of R-algebroid stacks are those of stacks in R- linear categories. We denote the 2-category of R-algebroid stacks by AlgStack R (X) Descent data Convolution data. Definition 4.5. An R-linear convolution datum is a triple (U, A 01, A 012 ) consisting of: a cover U Cov(X) a sheaf A 01 of R-modules A 01 on N 1 U a morphism of R-modules A 012 : (pr 2 01 ) A 01 R (pr 2 12 ) A 01 (pr 2 02 ) A 01 (4.1) subject to the associativity condition expressed by the commutativity of the diagram (pr 3 01 ) A 01 R (pr 3 12 ) A 01 R (pr 3 23 ) A 01 Id (pr ) (A 012) (pr ) (A 012) Id (pr 3 02 ) A 01 R (pr 3 23 ) A 01 (pr ) (A 012) (pr 3 01 ) A 01 R (pr 3 13 ) A 01 (pr ) (A 012) (pr 3 03 ) A 01 For a convolution datum (U, A 01, A 012 ) we denote by A the pair (A 01, A 012 ) and abbreviate the convolution datum by (U, A). For a convolution datum (U, A) let A := (pr 0 00 ) A 01 ; A is a sheaf of R-modules on N 0 U A p i := (prp i ) A; thus for every p we get sheaves A p i, 0 i p on N pu. The identities pr 0 01 pr0 000 = pr0 12 pr0 000 = pr 02 pr0 000 = pr0 00 imply that the pull-back of A 012 to N 0 U by pr gives the pairing (pr ) (A 012 ) : A R A A. (4.2)

16 16 P. Bressler, A. Gorokhovsky, R. Nest, B. Tsygan The associativity condition implies that the pairing (4.2) endows A with a structure of a sheaf of associative R-algebras on N 0 U. The sheaf A p i is endowed with the associative R-algebra structure induced by that on A. We denote by A p ii the Ap i R (A p i )op -module A p i, with the module structure given by the left and right multiplication. The identities pr 2 01 pr1 001 = pr0 00 pr1 0, pr2 12 pr1 001 = pr2 02 pr1 001 = Id imply that the pull-back of A 012 to N 1 U by pr gives the pairing (pr ) (A 012 ) : A 1 0 R A 01 A 01 (4.3) The associativity condition implies that the pairing (4.3) endows A 01 with a structure of a A 1 0-module. Similarly, the pull-back of A 012 to N 1 U by pr endows A 01 with a structure of a (A 1 1) op -module. Together, the two module structures define a structure of a A 1 0 R (A 1 1) op -module on A 01. The map (4.1) factors through the map (pr 2 01 ) A 01 A 2 1 (pr 2 12 ) A 01 (pr 2 02 ) A 01 (4.4) Definition 4.6. A unit for a convolution datum A is a morphism of R-modules such that the compositions 1 : R A A 01 1 Id A 1 (pr 0 R A ) (A 012) 01 A 01 and A 01 Id 1 A 01 R A 1 (pr ) (A 012) 1 A 01 are equal to the respective identity morphisms Descent data. Definition 4.7. A descent datum on X is an R-linear convolution datum (U, A) on X with a unit which satisfies the following additional conditions: 1. A 01 is locally free of rank one as a A 1 0-module and as a (A 1 1) op -module; 2. the map (4.4) is an isomorphism morphisms. Suppose given convolution data (U, A) and (U, B) as in Definition 4.5. Definition 4.8. A 1-morphism of convolution data φ : (U, A) (U, B)

17 Deformations of gerbes 17 is a morphism of R-modules φ 01 : A 01 B 01 such that the diagram (pr 2 01 ) A 01 R (pr 2 12 ) A A (pr 2 02 ) A 01 (pr 2 02 ) (φ 01) (pr 2 01 ) (φ 01) (pr 2 12 ) (φ 01) (4.5) is commutative. (pr 2 01 ) B 01 R (pr 2 12 ) B B (pr 2 02 ) B 01 The 1-morphism φ induces a morphism of R-algebras φ := (pr 0 00 ) (φ 01 ) : A B on N 0 U as well as morphisms φ p i := (prp i ) (φ) : A p i Bp i on N pu. The morphism φ 01 is compatible with the morphism of algebras φ 0 φ op 1 : A 1 0 R (A 1 1) op B0 1 R (B1) 1 op and the respective module structures. A 1-morphism of descent data is a 1-morphism of the underlying convolution data which preserves respective units morphisms. Suppose that we are given descent data (U, A) and (U, B) as in and two 1-morphisms as in A 2-morphism φ, ψ : (U, A) (U, B) b : φ ψ is a section b Γ(N 0 U; B) such that the diagram ψ 01 b A 01 b φ 01 B 1 0 R B 01 is commutative. B 01 R B 1 1 B The 2-category of descent data. Fix a cover U of X. Suppose that we are given descent data (U, A), (U, B), (U, C) and 1-morphisms φ : (U, A) (U, B) and ψ : (U, B) (U, C). The map ψ 01 φ 01 : A 01 C 01 is a 1-morphism of descent data ψ φ : (U, A) (U, C), the composition of φ and ψ. Suppose that φ (i) : (U, A) (U, B), i = 1, 2, 3, are 1-morphisms and b (j) : φ (j) φ (j+1), j = 1, 2, are 2-morphisms. The section b (2) b (1) Γ(N 0 U; B) defines a 2-morphism, denoted b (2) b (1) : φ (1) φ (3), the vertical composition of b (1) and b (2). Suppose that φ (i) : (U, A) (U, B), ψ (i) : (U, B) (U, C), i = 1, 2, are 1- morphisms and b : φ (1) φ (2), c : ψ (1) ψ (2) are 2-morphisms. The section c ψ (1) (b) Γ(N 0 U; C) defines a 2-morphism, denoted c b, the horizontal composition of b and c. We leave it to the reader to check that with the compositions defined above descent data, 1-morphisms and 2-morphisms form a 2-category, denoted Desc R (U).

18 18 P. Bressler, A. Gorokhovsky, R. Nest, B. Tsygan Fibered category of descent data. Suppose that ρ : V U is a morphism of covers and (U, A) is a descent datum. Let A ρ 01 = (N 1ρ) A 01, A ρ 012 = (N 2 ρ) (A 012 ). Then, (V, A ρ ) is a descent datum. The assignment (U, A) (V, A ρ ) extends to a functor, denoted ρ : Desc R (U) Desc R (V). The assignment Cov(X) op U Desc R (U), ρ ρ is (pseudo-)functor. Let Desc R (X) denote the corresponding 2-category fibered in R-linear 2-categories over Cov(X) with object pairs (U, A) with U Cov(X) and (U, A) Desc R (U); a morphism (U, A ) (U, A) in Desc R (X) is a pair (ρ, φ), where ρ : U U is a morphism in Cov(X) and φ : (U, A ) ρ (U, A) = (U, A ρ ) Trivializations Definition of a trivialization. Definition 4.9. A trivialization of an algebroid stack C on X is an object in C(X). Suppose that C is an algebroid stack on X and L C(X) is a trivialization. The object L determines a morphism End C (L) + C. Lemma The induced morphism End C (L) + C is an equivalence. Remark Suppose that C is an R-algebroid stack on X. Then, there exists a cover U of X such that the stack ɛ 0C admits a trivialization The 2-category of trivializations. Let Triv R (X) denote the 2-category with objects the triples (C, U, L) where C is an R-algebroid stack on X, U is an open cover of X such that ɛ 0C(N 0 U) is nonempty and L is a trivialization of ɛ 0C. 1-morphisms (C, U, L) (C, U, L) are pairs (F, ρ) where ρ : U U is a morphism of covers, F : C C is a functor such that (N 0 ρ) F (L ) = L 2-morphisms (F, ρ) (G, ρ), where (F, ρ), (G, ρ) : (C, U, L) (C, U, L), are the morphisms of functors F G. The assignment (C, U, L) C extends in an obvious way to a functor Triv R (X) AlgStack R (X). The assignment (C, U, L) U extends to a functor Triv R (X) Cov(X) making Triv R (X) a fibered 2-category over Cov(X). For U Cov(X) we denote the fiber over U by Triv R (X)(U) Algebroid stacks from descent data. Consider (U, A) Desc R (U). The sheaf of algebras A on N 0 U gives rise to the algebroid stack Ã+. The sheaf A 01 defines an equivalence φ 01 := ( ) A 1 0 A 01 : (pr 1 0 ) Ã + (pr 1 1 ) Ã +.

19 Deformations of gerbes 19 The convolution map A 012 defines an isomorphism of functors φ 012 : (pr 2 01 ) (φ 01 ) (pr 2 12 ) (φ 01 ) (pr 2 02 ) (φ 01 ). We leave it to the reader to verify that the triple (Ã+, φ 01, φ 012 ) constitutes a descent datum for an algebroid stack on X which we denote by St(U, A). By construction there is a canonical equivalence Ã+ ɛ 0St(U, A) which endows ɛ 0St(U, A) with a canonical trivialization 1. The assignment (U, A) (St(U, A), U, 1) extends to a cartesian functor St : Desc R (X) Triv R (X) Descent data from trivializations. Consider (C, U, L) Triv R (X). Since ɛ 0 pr 1 0 = ɛ 0 pr 1 1 = ɛ 1 we have canonical identifications (pr 1 0 ) ɛ 0C = (pr 1 1 ) ɛ 0C = ɛ 1C. The object L ɛ 0C(N 0 U) gives rise to the objects (pr 1 0 ) L and (pr 1 1 ) L in ɛ 1C(N 0 U). Let A 01 = Hom ɛ 1 C((pr 1 1 ) L, (pr 1 0 ) L). Thus, A 01 is a sheaf of R-modules on N 1 U. The object L ɛ 0C(N 0 U) gives rise to the objects (pr 2 0 ) L, (pr 2 1 ) L and (pr 2 2 ) L in ɛ 2C(N 2 U). There are canonical isomorphisms (pr 2 ij ) A 01 = Homɛ 2 C((pr 2 i ) L, (pr 2 j ) L). The composition of morphisms Hom ɛ 2 C ((pr2 1 ) L, (pr 2 0 ) L) R Hom ɛ 2 C ((pr2 2 ) L, (pr 2 1 ) L) Hom ɛ 2 C ((pr2 2 ) L, (pr 2 0 ) L) gives rise to the map A 012 : (pr 2 01 ) A 01 R (pr 2 12 ) A 01 (pr 2 02 ) A 02 Since pr 1 i pr0 00 = Id there is a canonical isomorphism A := (pr0 00 ) A 01 = End(L) which supplies A with the unit section 1 : R 1 End(L) A. The pair (U, A), together with the section 1 is a decent datum which we denote dd(c, U, L). The assignment (U, A) dd(c, U, L) extends to a cartesian functor dd : Triv R (X) Desc R (X). Lemma The functors St and dd are mutually quasi-inverse equivalences Base change. For an R-linear category C and homomorphism of algebras R S we denote by C R S the category with the same objects as C and morphisms defined by Hom C R S(A, B) = Hom C (A, B) R S. For an R-algebra A the categories (A R S) + and A + R S are canonically isomorphic. For a prestack C in R-linear categories we denote by C R S the prestack associated to the fibered category U C(U) R S. For U X, A, B C(U), there is an isomorphism of sheaves Hom C R S(A, B) = Hom C (A, B) R S.

20 20 P. Bressler, A. Gorokhovsky, R. Nest, B. Tsygan Lemma Suppose that A is a sheaf of R-algebras and C is an R-algebroid stack. 1. (Ã+ R S) is an algebroid stack equivalent to (A R S) C R S is an algebroid stack. Proof. Suppose that A is a sheaf of R-algebras. There is a canonical isomorphism of prestacks (A R S) + = A + R S which induces the canonical equivalence (A R S) + = A + R S. The canonical functor A + Ã+ induces the functor A + R S Ã+ R S, hence the functor A+ R S (Ã+ R S). The map A A R S induces the functor Ã+ (A R S) + which factors through the functor Ã+ R S (A R S) +. From this we obtain the functor (Ã+ R S) (A R S) +. We leave it to the reader to check that the two constructions are mutually inverse equivalences. It follows that (Ã+ R S) is an algebroid stack equivalent to (A R S) +. Suppose that C is an R-algebroid stack. Let U be a cover such that ɛ 0C(N 0 U) is nonempty. Let L be an object in ɛ 0C(N 0 U); put A := End ɛ 0 C (L). The equivalence Ã + ɛ 0C induces the equivalence (Ã+ R S) (ɛ 0C R S). Since the former is an algebroid stack so is the latter. There is a canonical equivalence (ɛ 0C R S) = ɛ 0( C R S); since the former is an algebroid stack so is the latter. Since the property of being an algebroid stack is local, the stack C R S is an algebroid stack Twisted forms. Suppose that A is a sheaf of R-algebras on X. We will call an R-algebroid stack locally equivalent to Ãop+ a twisted form of A. Suppose that S is twisted form of O X. Then, the substack is is an O X - gerbe. The assignment S is extends to an equivalence between the 2-groupoid of twisted forms of O X (a subcategory of AlgStack C (X)) and the 2-groupoid of O X -gerbes. Let S be a twisted form of O X. Then for any U X, A S(U) the canonical map O U End S (A) is an isomorphism. Consequently, if U is a cover of X and L is a trivialization of ɛ 0S, then there is a canonical isomorphism of sheaves of algebras O N0U End ɛ 0 S (L). Conversely, suppose that (U, A) is a C-descent datum. If the sheaf of algebras A is isomorphic to O N0U then such an isomorphism is unique since the latter has no non-trivial automorphisms. Thus, we may and will identify A with O N0U. Hence, A 01 is a line bundle on N 1 U and the convolution map A 012 is a morphism of line bundles. The stack which corresponds to (U, A) (as in 4.3.3) is a twisted form of O X.
