The quantity g (k) (v) was introduced in [6] as the minimum number of blocks necessary in a pairwise balanced design on v elements, subject to the condition that the longest block has length k. Recently, we have needed to use all possibilities for such minimal covering designs, and we record all non-isomorphic solutions to the problem for v ≤ 13.
A directed triple system of order v, DTS(v), is a pair (V, B) where V is a set of v elements and B is a collection of ordered triples of distinct elements of V with the property that every ordered pair of distinct elements of V occurs in exactly one triple as a subsequence. A set of triples in a DTS(v) D is a defining set for D if it occurs in no other(More)
