Dr. Robert Coulter

Teaching (Spring semester of Academic year 2018/2019):

  • Math549: Coding Theory and Cryptography.
  • Math829: Special Topics Course on Boolean Functions.

Research Interests:

    • Finite fields and applications.
    • Polynomials over finite fields, particularly their roles in projective geometry, information security and combinatorics.
    • Construction and classification of Cartesian groups, quasifields and semifields.
    • Automorphism groups of combinatorial and algebraic objects, and the interrelated problems of isotopy of algebraic objects and isomorphism of projective planes.

You can find a publication list here.

The following students have so far had the extreme wisdom (i.e. been foolish enough) to work with me on their PhDs:

  • Todd Gutekunst (completed May 08, now at King’s College)
  • Pamela Kosick (completed Dec 09, now at Stockton University)
  • Chris Castillo (completed May 15)
  • Chris Ulicny (departed with Masters, May 15)
  • Patrick Cesarz (current, still here at UD)
  • Paul Hearding (current)
  • Emily Bergman (current, still here at UD)
  • Bradley Fain (current, still here at UD)
