Abstract:

During this workshop there will be lectures and informal exchanges and discussions on recent advances in Design Theory and Differences sets t- designs without repeated blocks, s, r, mu- nets and their automorphisms, quasi-symmetric designs, Fourier transforms of difference sets, Design on partially ordered sets etc.. Interactions between Design Theory and Coding Theory will be emphasized. Combinatorial and graph-theoretical methods are increasingly important in the social sciences. This workshop will emphasize mathematical techniques and open mathematical problems arising in such fields as anthropology, economics, political science, psychology, and sociology. Combinatorial models and methods also play a fundamental role in modern biology. A major portion of this workshop will focus on the combinatorics of sequence analysis. The presentations will emphasize open mathematical questions arising from biological modeling in the hope of enriching both mathematics and biology. Workshops.
