Algebra

Dr. Acosta received her Ph.D. from University of Arizona in 1987. Dr. Acosta's research deals with equations and polynomials with special properties over finite fields. She has worked on the characterization of polynomials in two variables with minimal value set, matrix equations of the form Xn=B, and other related problems.
