## Combinatorial Designs: A Tribute to Haim Hanani (Google eBook)Haim Hanani pioneered the techniques for constructing designs and the theory of pairwise balanced designs, leading directly to Wilson's Existence Theorem. He also led the way in the study of resolvable designs, covering and packing problems, latin squares, 3-designs and other combinatorial configurations. The Hanani volume is a collection of research and survey papers at the forefront of research in combinatorial design theory, including Professor Hanani's own latest work on Balanced Incomplete Block Designs. Other areas covered include Steiner systems, finite geometries, quasigroups, and t-designs. |
