Overview

Resulting from papers from Algebraic, Extremal and Metric Combinatorics 1986 conference held at the University of Montreal, this book represents a comprehensive overview of the present state of progress in three related areas of combinatorics. Topics covered in the articles include association shemes, extremal problems, combinatorial geometries and matroids, and designs. All the papers contain new results and many are extensive surveys of particular areas of research.
