This book has two aims: first, to present some of the basic material on block designs and orthogonal Latin squares, emphasizing, in particular, methods of constructing cyclic examples by means of difference systems; and, secondly, to give an account of the construction of league tables, tournaments with various balance requirements, bridge tournaments (via balanced Room squares) and whist tournaments. It is clear, readable, and up to date.(iii) See number 9 for application. (Horton, 1981) 8. Orthogonal league schedules . Let R be a Room square of side r based on {0, 1, ... , r}. Then the pairs in the r rows form a league schedule for r + 1 teams, called the row schedule of i?
