And stalwart energies, to bless us born.

The construction of the moduli space in , using a definition of stability proposed in , is easily seen to be equivalent to the classical construction of Simpson in the case of moduli of modules.
Moduli of twisted sheaves
This will aid us in comparing various notions of semistability and slope-semistability to their classical counterparts (as in Simpson’s theory for semistability of modules for sheaves of algebras [55, §3]). 2.2.7.15.
Moduli of twisted sheaves
In the special case where S is affine and X → S is pro jective of relative dimension 2, we can use 2.2.2.2 to “drastically simplify” the situation by reducing it to work of Simpson on stability of modules for an algebra.
Moduli of twisted sheaves
Given a sheaf of algebras A on X , an A -module F is Simpson (semi)stable if the inequality of 2.3.2.1 holds for subsheaves G which are A -submodules.
