A Grothendieck context is a pair of two symmetric monoidal categories $(\mathcal{X}, \otimes_X, 1_{X})$, $(\mathcal{Y}, \otimes_Y, 1_Y)$ which are connected by an adjoint triple of functors such that the leftmost one is a closed monoidal functor.
This is the variant/special case of the yoga of six operations with two adjoint pairs $(f_! \dashv f^!)$ and $(f^\ast \dashv f_\ast)$ for $f_! \simeq f_\ast$.
(The other specialization of the six operations where $f^\ast \simeq f^!$ is called the Wirthmüller context).
The existence of the (derived) right adjoint $f^!$ to $f_\ast$ is what is called Grothendieck duality.
A homomorphism of schemes $f \;\colon\; X \longrightarrow Y$ induces an inverse image $\dashv$ direct image adjunction on the derived categories $QCoh(-)$ of quasicoherent sheaves
(all derived functors) If $f$ is a proper morphism of schemes then under mild further conditions there is a further right adjoint $f^!$
This is originally due to Grothendieck, whence the name. Refined accounts are in (Deligne 66, Verdier 68, Neeman 96).
Generalization of the pull-push adjoint triple to E-∞ geometry is in (LurieQC, prop. 2.5.12) and the projection formula for this is in (LurieProp, remark 1.3.14).
The original construction for quasicoherent sheaves on schemes is due to Alexander Grothendieck, whence the name “Grothendieck context”.
