Hello, How would you describe Jacobson(nZ) in terms of prime factorization of n? Jacobson(nZ) = intersection of all maximal ideals of a commutative ring R with unity that contains nZ with n >1. I have read some books and it seems related with maximal ideals of Z are generated by ideals pZ where p is prime number, but I don't really understand. Thank you in advance.
