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.
