Prime ideals of tensor products



Dear NG,
If I have commutative rings and I know their prime ideals, and I know
that I can make a tensor product between them with respect to some ring
(say Z), then can I completely determine the prime ideals in this
tensor product?
Sincerely,
Jose Capco

I think this is not possible in general. E.g., let R=Z[X] and K be any
field, we have K(x)_Z Z[X] = K[X] and the nontrivial prime ideals in
K[X] are generated by irreducible polynomials which cannot be coded by
any prime ideals in Z[X] and K.
Nevertheless, if R and S are finitely generated algebras over a field k,
then there is a link between the maximal ideals of the tensor product
R(x)S (over k) and the set theoretic product of the maximal spectra of R
and S. This is one of the starting points of the theory of varieties.
