In 2004 Derksen made a conjecture concerning bounds on the degrees of the generators of the syzygies of a ring of polynomial invariants, the resolution being over a polynomial ring that maps onto the invariants.

We will present a proof of an amended version of this conjecture that only uses elementary homological algebra.

This is joint work with Marc Chardin.
