Summary: We study dualizing complexes. The unusual feature is that we do not assume them to have bounded injective resolutions; we prove that the theory works just fine with no boundedness hypothesis. In the process we prove a number of new results about Grothendieck duality; one of the more striking is that, under relatively mild hypotheses on \(f:X\to Y\), the functor \(f^!:{\mathbf D}(\text{Qcoh}/Y)\to{\mathbf D} (\text{Qcoh}/X)\) takes pseudocoherent complexes to pseudocoherent complexes. The biggest innovation in our approach is that we systematically employ products in the category \({\mathbf D}(\text{Qcoh}/X)\); the older treatments never ventured beyond coproducts.
In an appendix we include a proof that, if \(\mathcal T\) is a stable homotopy category in the sense of M. Hovey, J. H. Palmieri and N. P. Strickland [Axiomatic stable homotopy theory, Mem. Am. Math. Soc. 610 (1997; Zbl 0881.55001)] in which the compact objects coincide with the strongly dualizable objects, then the compact objects can also be characterized as those objects such that tensoring with them respects products.
