Design Theory: Volume 1, PDF eBook


Please note: eBooks can only be purchased with a UK issued credit card and all our eBooks (ePub and PDF) are DRM protected.


This is the first volume of the second edition of the standard text on design theory.

Since the first edition there has been extensive development of the theory and this book has been thoroughly rewritten and extended during that time.

In particular the growing importance of discrete mathematics to many parts of engineering and science have made designs a useful tool for 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 and other mathematically oriented disciplines.

Exercises are included throughout, and the book concludes with an extensive and updated bibliography of well over 1800 items.
