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"?).

comment Connection in fibre bundle from discontinuous group action
@Bombyxmori I think it is reasonable, considering that I "act in every direction". The formal argument I know invokes Poincaré duality to conclude: if a group $\Gamma$ acts (faithfully) on a contractible manifold $X$ and $\mathrm{cd} \, \Gamma = \dim X$, then $X / \Gamma$ is compact. ($\mathrm{cd}$ being the "cohomological dimension".)

Thanks. Any hint as to why this is true?
