Contains papers prepared for the 1990 multidisciplinary conference held to honor the late mathematician and researcher. Topics include applications of classic geometry to finite geometries and designs; multiple transitive permutation groups; low dimensional groups and their geometry; difference sets in 2-groups; construction of Galois groups; construction of strongly p-imbeded subgroups in finite simple groups; Hall triple systems, Fisher spaces and 3-transposition groups; explicit embeddings in finitely generated groups; 2-transitive and flag transitive designs; efficient representations of perm groups; codes and combinatorial designs; optimal normal bases for finite fields; vector space designs from quadratic forms and inequalities; primitive permutation groups, graphs and relation algebras; large sets of ordered designs, orthogonal 1-factorizations and hyperovals; algebraic integers all of whose algebraic conjugates have the same absolute value.
