Design Theory, Volume 1 / Edition 2by Thomas Beth, Deiter Jungnickel, Hanfried Lenz
Pub. Date: 12/28/1999
Publisher: Cambridge University Press
This is the first volume of a two-volume text on design theory. Since the first edition, there has been extensive development of the theory. In particular, the growing importance of discrete mathematics to many parts of engineering and science has made designs a useful tool for applications. The authors acknowledge this trend with an additional chapter on applications. It is suitable for advanced courses and as a reference work, not only for researchers in discrete mathematics or finite algebra, but also for those working in computer and communications engineering. The book features exercises throughout and concludes with an extensive and updated bibliography of over 1800 entries.
