Created to teach students many of the most important techniques used for constructing combinatorial designs, this is an ideal textbook for advanced undergraduate and graduate courses in combinatorial design theory. The text features clear explanations of basic designs, such as Steiner and Kirkman triple systems, mutual orthogonal Latin squares, finite projective and affine planes, and Steiner quadruple systems. In these settings, the student will... more...

This textbook thoroughly outlines combinatorial algorithms for generation, enumeration, and search. Topics include backtracking and heuristic search methods applied to various combinatorial structures, such as: Combinations Permutations Graphs Designs Many classical areas are covered as well as new research topics not included in most existing texts, such as: Group algorithms Graph isomorphism... more...


This book constitutes the thoroughly refereed post-proceedings of the 17th Annual International Workshop on Selected Areas in Cryptography, SAC 2010, held in Waterloo, Ontario, Canada in August 2010. The 24 revised full papers presented together with 2 invited papers were carefully reviewed and selected from 90 submissions. The papers are organized in topical sections on hash functions, stream ciphers,... more...
