comment Is this a known formula? $\det (id, \partial_x, \partial_y)^t (f, g, h)$
@BCLC I found it while calculating automorphisms of rank-two vector bundles on a non-commutative deformation of a surface. This expression comes from rewriting three expressions containing Poisson structures as this determinant. The expressions with Poisson structures don't simplify to anything nice, so I am wondering if maybe this determinant expression is something nice I just don't know.

comment A proof for Atiyah-Macdonald Exercise I.21.iii
@TakumiMurayama That is where my confusion lies. Maybe it is a shorthand for the set of all the elements in the contractions of the prime ideals containing $\mathfrak b$ (or a shorthand for the ideal generated by all these elements). The first equality in the last chain of equalities says $r (E^c) = r (E)^c$, which I only know to hold when $E$ is an ideal. I'm asking if there is a way to make sense of this "proof", because if the answer is yes, it is shorter than the other proof I found. But if the answer is no, then I will simply ignore it.

@PedroTamaroff The only broad thing about the question is the last paragraph, which is optional (should I say "bonus question"?).
