Aerodynamics of flat plate delta wing

I am interested to know how lift is generated on a flat plate delta wing like the polaris, and the particular characteristics of this wing shape compared to a flat plate swept wing. I am also interested in just what leading edge angles would be considered a delta wing, ie at very large angles, the wing looks more like a swept wing.
