From experimental design to cryptography, this comprehensive, easy-to-access reference contains literally all the facts you need on combinatorial designs. It includes constructions of designs, existence results, and properties of designs. Organized into six main parts, the CRC Handbook of Combinatorial Designs covers:

A balanced incomplete block design (BIBD) is a pair (V, B) where V is a v-set and B is a collection of b k-subsets of V (blocks) such that each element of V is contained in exactly r blocks and any 2-subset of V is contained in exactly blocks. Lire la première page

I learn more from it.It is not expensive. The book is good, though it is second-handed. I will buy more books.

If you haven't heard of it before, combinatorial design theory studies ways of subsetting a collection of items so that the subsets bring different members of the collection together in different ways. "Kirkman's Schoolgirls" (see wikipedia) might be the archetypal example, but different applications of design theory drive in Latin squares, design of scientific experiments, error correcting codes, and (in my case) connection networks within computers.
This book collects nearly 100 monographs on the subject, covering many variations and specializations within design theory. As in any such collection, the authors' interests define each work, so don't expect a coherent, step by step introduction to the topic. But, as happens with collections like this, you might well find specific articles that address your needs directly.
Good for the dedicated specialist - so make sure that's you before you spend the money.
