Abstract: In this paper a construction of a quotient sheaf of a sheaf of rings is given. This construction is analogous to the Utumi ring of quotients of a ring. For a valuation ring V, a sheaf of rings corresponding to V is introduced and its quotient sheaf is computed. It is shown that this quotient sheaf corresponds to the completion of V in case V is discrete rank one and that V is maximal if and only if its associated sheaf of rings is its own quotient sheaf.
