Lemma 10.35.14. Let $R$ be a Jacobson ring. Let $f \in R$. The ring $R_ f$ is Jacobson and maximal ideals of $R_ f$ correspond to maximal ideals of $R$ not containing $f$.

Proof. By Topology, Lemma 5.18.5 we see that $D(f) = \mathop{\mathrm{Spec}}(R_ f)$ is Jacobson and that closed points of $D(f)$ correspond to closed points in $\mathop{\mathrm{Spec}}(R)$ which happen to lie in $D(f)$. Thus $R_ f$ is Jacobson by Lemma 10.35.4. $\square$

I usually understand the word "correspond" to mean that there is a 1-1 correspondence. Thus I'd write "correspond to maximal ideals of not containing ".
