Additivity of affine designs

Risultato della ricerca: Article

Abstract

We show that any affine block design D = (P, B) is a subset of a suitable commutativegroup G_D, with the property that a k-subset of P is a block of D if and only if its kelements sum up to zero. As a consequence, the group of automorphisms of any affinedesign D is the group of automorphisms of G_D that leave P invariant. Whenever k isa prime p, G_D is an elementary abelian p-group.
