We study a standard operator on classes of languages: unambiguous polynomial closure. We prove that for every class C of regular languages satisfying mild properties, the membership problem for its unambiguous polynomial closure UPol(C) reduces to the same problem for C. We also show that unambiguous polynomial closure coincides with alternating left and right deterministic closure. Moreover, we prove that if additionally C is finite, the separation and covering problems are decidable for UPol(C). Finally, we present an overview of the generic logical characterizations of the classes built using unambiguous polynomial closure.
