The aim of this book is to provide a unified exposition of the theory of symmetric designs with emphasis on recent developments. The authors cover the combinatorial aspects of the theory giving particular attention to the construction of symmetric designs and related objects. The last five chapters of the book are devoted to balanced generalized weighing matrices, decomposable symmetric designs, subdesigns of symmetric designs, non-embeddable quasi-residual designs, and Ryser designs. Most results in these chapters have never previously appeared in book form. The book concludes with a comprehensive bibliography of over 400 entries. Researchers in all areas of combinatorial designs, including coding theory and finite geometries, will find much of interest here. Detailed proofs and a large number of exercises make this book suitable as a text for an advanced course in combinatorial designs.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'Most results in these chapters have never appeared in book form. Researchers in all areas of combinational designs, including coding theory and finite geometries, will find much of interest here. Detailed proofs and a large number of exercises make this book suitable as a text for an advance course in combinatorial designs.' L'enseignement mathematique
"I said that the book is more than a research monograph: in many places, it is fun to read! Unlike most research monographs, however, every chapter ends with exercises ranging from the routine to the very challenging, and every chapter ends with notes on sources, history, and references to the chapter's topics. The exercises and notes are among the most attractive aspect of the book." Ezra Brown MAA Reviews
"The strengths of this book are the many combinatorial connections, the comprehensive and carefully described constructions, and the extensive list of references." Sylvia A. Hobart, Mathematical Reviews
