Another Elementary Proof
of the Nullstellensatz
In , May reproduced an elegant and elementary proof of the Nullstellensatz provided
by Munshi in . We offer here an alternative elementary proof, in which we avoid
some of the algebraic technicalities needed in  and . As a counterpart, we need
a simple version of the Noether normalization lemma (Lemma 1). On the other hand,
