There is a simple tool to convert your latex script to html that can be pasted directly.

LaTeX2WP, written by Luca Trevisan, is a Python script that will convert a LaTeX file into a format suitable for pasting into a WordPress.com post. Hence you need Python, which is automatically embedded in Unix, Mac OS and Linux(all distributions), in your system. Just click the link to see the details and instructions. Please Make sure to download the latest version.

I have tried it several times and am aware that how to revise the python script to fit part of your latex preamble. In fact, due to the restrictions from wordpress and the current work load of the author, there are many latex commands and packages which is not supported, so the best way is to follow his definition in the style files.

If your like it, or have any questions, welcome to discuss with me.

I just thought that I’d like to point out a blog entry of Terry Tao’s on the Hilbert Nullstellensatz. It makes for interesting reading and also takes (what I think is) a more concrete approach, eschewing the formidable algebraic machinery that took us nearly 2 weeks to cover.

Also, Wikipedia has a nice entry on the theorem, with an auxilary entry on the Rabinowitsch trick.

If you click here, you’ll find an expository paper of Richard Swan based on an ‘elementary’ proof of the Nullstellensatz by Ritabrata Munshi. I particularly like the way how different approaches all give us different interpretations of the Nullstellensatz itself.
