Abstract: Upper bounds are found for the characteristic function of a homogeneous polynomial ideal $ I$; such estimates were previously known only for a radical ideal $ I$. An analog of the first Bertini theorem for primary decompositions is formulated and proved. Also, a new representation for primary ideals and modules is introduced and used, which is convenient from an algorithmic point of view.
