Abstract: Let $ X_1$ and $ X_2$ be schemes of finite type over a field of characteristic 0. Let $ Q$ be an object in the category $ \textup {D-mod}(X_1\times X_2)$ and consider the functor $ F:\textup {D-mod}(X_1)\to \textup {D-mod}(X_2)$ defined by $ Q$. Assume that $ F$ admits a right adjoint also defined by an object $ P$ in $ \textup {D-mod}(X_1\times X_2)$. The question that we pose and answer in this paper is how $ P$ is related to the Verdier dual of $ Q$. We subsequently generalize this question to the case when $ X_1$ and $ X_2$ are no longer schemes but Artin stacks, where the situation becomes much more interesting.
