Title: Local description of the Hilbert scheme when $n=2$, II.

Abstract: We will finish the discussion of local descriptions of the quotient by a finite group, and use them to give local pictures of $X^{[n]}$, $\operatorname{Sym}^n(X)$, the universal family over $X^{[n]}$, and the maps between them when $X$ is a smooth surface and $n=2$.
