All the textbooks I've seen prove the Strong Nullstellensatz from the Weak Nullstellensatz using the Rabinowitsch trick.

How did they prove the Strong Nullstellensatz before the Rabinowitsch trick was invented?

  • $\begingroup$ I guess you mean Hilbert's Nullstellensatz. I tried to find his original proof but could not find it. Don't know how he called the theorem... But I found this: link.springer.com/article/10.1007%2FBF01187946?LI=true#page-1 I did not read it in full because I dont have free access (or at least not from home). But sounds as it takes another path and mentions a proof by Brauer which is it first reference which seems noy to use the Rabinowitsch trick, too. I hope this might help. $\endgroup$
