The paper considers a commutative associative algebra A with a unit element over a field K of characteristic zero and a subalgebra \(L\subset Der(A)\) which is an A-submodule such that \(LA=A\). A natural bijection between the set of all maximal invariant ideals in A and the set of all maximal ideals in L is exhibited.
This result leads to the description of all maximal invariant ideals in the real algebra \(C^{\infty}(V)\), where V is a connected paracompact \(C^{\infty}\) manifold.
