Abstract:

A development of nonexistence proofs of certain balanced incomplete block designs is presented which leads to simplifications of some of the necessary conditions for symmetrical balanced incomplete block designs SBIBD. The unified approach of using properties of the integer matrices in determining necessary conditions for SBIBDs has been extended to intra- and inter-group balanced incomplete block designs which were defined by Nair and Bose.
