Abstract: Let $ R$ be a commutative noetherian ring with a dualizing complex. By recent work of Iyengar and Krause (2006), the difference between the category of acyclic complexes and its subcategory of totally acyclic complexes measures how far $ R$ is from being Gorenstein. In particular, $ R$ is Gorenstein if and only if every acyclic complex is totally acyclic.

In this note we exhibit a specific acyclic complex with the property that it is totally acyclic if and only if $ R$ is Gorenstein.
