On Intrinsic Bounds in the Nullstellensatz

Let k be a field and f1, . . . , f s be non constant polynomials in k[X1, . . . , X n ] which generate the trivial ideal. In this paper we define an invariant associated to the sequence f1, . . . , f s : the geometric degree of the system. With this notion we can show the following effective Nullstellensatz: if δ denotes the geometric degree of the trivial system f1, . . . , f s and d :=max j deg( f j ), then there exist polynomials p1, . . . , p s ∈k[X1, . . . , X n ] such that 1=∑ j p j f j and deg p j f j ≦3n2δd. Since the number δ is always bounded by (d+1) n-1 , one deduces a classical single exponential upper bound in terms of d and n, but in some cases our new bound improves the known ones.
