Important and Exciting Construction Design Techniques The second edition of a basic text on design theory, this book examines some of the most important techniques used for constructing combinatorial designs. Focusing on several basic designs such as Steiner Triple Systems, Latin Squares, and finite projective and affine planes, the authors add interesting properties such as resolvability and orthogonality. This new edition adds material on embedding designs, algorithms for producing disjoint designs, and algebraic connections between quasigroups and graph decompositions. In addition, several of the more complicated structures, such as the Steiner quadruple systems are also included. The book is supplemented with problem sets and examples.
