I will discuss a lower bound for a homogeneous polynomial in characteristic p, relative to its degree, and describe the classification of the hypersurfaces that achieve this bound up to change of coordinates. These results were obtained as part of a project started at the A.W.M. Workshop Women in Commutative Algebra” at B.I.R.S.; joint work with Zhibek Kadyrsizova, Jennifer Kenkel, Janet Page, Jyoti Singh, Karen E. Smith and Emily Witt.
