Notice that the above matrix condition is not obviously self-opposite, i. e., it is not immediately clear why the similar condition with the order of factors in the products of matrices reversed is equivalent to the condition from Theorem.
Mixed Artin-Tate motives with finite coefficients
By Corollary A.8.2, the decomposition condition for such D and M = E is equivalent to the condition that the morphisms Extn E (X, Y ) −→ HomD (X, Y [n]) be isomorphisms for all X , Y ∈ E and n > 0, and the latter is clearly equivalent to the condition (7.1) for the exact category E .
